The WrestleMania Backlash PPV event is arguably going to be remembered for one match. WWE had a promotional deal in place with Batista and his new Netflix Army of The Dead movie, which included a zombie horde from the film appearing for the Lumberjack match between The Miz and Damian Priest.
It’s safe to say that there’s been a contrast in opinion regarding the match. The zombie lumberjacks would appear after John Morrison went to find the real life lumberjacks for the match; where he actually opened a door to a horde of the undead.
Fans were quick to point the blame at Batista for the crossover promotion, which is ridiculous as he clearly had nothing to do with it. One fan tweeted his displeasure to The Animal, writing “hey Dave I love you, but this zombie sh*t on the WWE Backlash show was insulting!”

Batista didn’t take this lying down, and promptly said that the blame should be aimed solely at the man at the top of WWE. ‘Wtf you telling me?!!” Batista wrote. “You think I booked a bunch of f*cking zombies?”
“I’m on a damn plane” Batista continued. “Shouldn’t you be tweeting Vince?! [man shrugging emoji].’
