As we got to see during the last ppv broadcast by WWE from its ThunderDome, Wrestlemania Backlash, there was a very particular segment, which was targeted by fans and various insiders, who harshly criticized the Stamford federation, for using extras disguised as zombies, who literally went to attack the athletes present in the federation ring.
In the Lumberjack match that involved Damian Priest and The Miz, in fact, WWE has seen fit to include the undead as Lumberjacks, doing a lot of publicity for the new film by Batista, former wrestler of the company: Army of the Dead.
Apparently, behind this sensational staging, which has little or nothing to do with pro-wrestling, there would be none other than Warner Bros, a world film company, which would have paid handsomely the McMahons to stage everything we saw in the latest pay-per-view that aired on WWE Network.
According to reports from various online sources, including the well-known site Ringside News, it seems that WWE has received a 7-figure offer, therefore we are talking about millions of dollars, to stage what we all saw at Wrestlemania Backlash, with Warner's gimmick, aired on the WWE rings that absolutely succeeded in its intent: to make people talk and above all attracts the attention of the public.
According to the journalists of the well-known overseas site, to orchestrate the whole thing, it would have been the co-president of WWE Nick Khan, who would have managed everything together with the management of Warner, immediately obtaining the okay of the WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon.
After receiving a lot of money from both Warner and Peacock TV, WWE would be ready to stage several other segments of the genre, should the opportunity arise in the future, with fans being warned.
