Sunday's WrestleMania Backlash event was sponsored by Zack Snyder's new zombie film Army of The Dead, and the WWE decided to have a bit of a crossover in one of their matches. Damian Priest took on The Miz midway through the show it what was supposed to be a Lumberjack Match, but instead of wrestlers from the locker room the ring was surrounded by zombies.
Fans immediately took to Twitter to react to the bizarre crossover and the WWE's sudden jump into the horror genre. Check out some of the best reactions in the list below!
