Jericho was referring to a line reportedly said by someone in WWE management when speaking on AEW’s Blood & Guts match. Dave Scherer of PWInsider reported, WWE management was not happy with the match, with one person stating, “That just set the business back 30 years”.
WWE used zombies during a lumberjack match between Damien Priest and The Miz. It was a branded partnership with Netflix’s original movie Army of The Dead, starring former WWE star Dave Bautista.
Dave Bautista responded to a fan who wasn’t pleased with the zombies being used during the show.
Wtf you telling me?!! You think I booked a bunch of fucking zombies. I’m on a damn plane! Shouldn’t you be tweeting Vince?!
