In the last few days, there has been much discussion about the presence of the Army of the Dead Zombies (Batista's new film sponsored in WrestleMania Backlash) at ringside during the Lumberjack Match between Damian Priest and The Miz.
On social media, there was no lack of the usual criticisms of WWE, according to some "fans" of bringing an old and above all inappropriate product. Legitimate opinions if combined with many examples and arguments, but certainly not right if they are pronounced on the basis of a bias and for such a "small" thing.
The identity of WrestleMania Backlash's zombies has been revealed
But dwelling on what interests us, sports entertainment made in WWE, are we really sure that this was a wrong choice? Because in the end, in reality, they were an integral part of a match that presented a zero-interest, where Priest's victory was as necessary as it was taken for granted, and precisely for this reason the addition of an extra factor was not even such a bad thing.
It would have been different if WWE had chosen to allow zombies to meddle in another match. WrestlingNews has revealed the identity of a few of the zombies that were featured at WrestleMania Backlash. Former WWE Tag Team champion Scotty 2 Hotty, who works as a trainer at the Performance Center, was one of the zombies.
His identity was alluded to by Booker T on his Hall of Fame podcast, which the report has referenced. Here's an excerpt from the report: "It turns out that the person Booker T was referring to was former WWE star Scotty 2 Hotty, who currently works as a coach at the Performance Center and as a live event producer for NXT.
The names include Chance Barrow, Joe Ariola, Bronson Rechsteiner, Drew Kasper, Joe Gacy, Jacob Kasper, Asher Hale, Ari Sterline, August Grey, Ikemen Jiro, Daniel Vidot, Jake Atlas, and Xyon Quinn."
