Chris Jericho reacts to the match
The match between The Miz and Damien Priest saw a bunch of zombies making an appearance at WWE WrestleMania Backlash. Damian Priest had requested previously to take on The A-Lister so that he could not run away from the match. Priest sqaured off against The Miz in a Lumberjack match at the event and later the match was changed to a Zombies Lumberjack match.
During the match zombies attacked John Morrison and The Miz at the end. WWE tried to do it to promote Army of The Dead movie which was the sponsor of event. The movie is starring former WWE star Batista and he was the one to send his friends(zombies) to the event.
WWE attempted to do something out of the box but it got negative reaction on social media and even Chris Jericho lambasted the idea. He stated that it took wrestling three decades backwards.
Here is what he said: “Zombies… ZOMBIES? Wow that just set wrestling back 30 years.”

Chris Jericho has taken several jibes at WWE before as well
This is not the first time that Jericho has taken a shot at the rival company. The former AEW World Champion had also reacted to the rumor that that claimed WWE management hated the AEW Blood and Guts match.
PWInsider had stated that WWE officials hated the Blood and Guts match between The Inner Circle and The Pinnacle. One source even went as far as to say that the match set the business back 30 years.
The Blood and Guts match saw two-cage match similar to WarGames. It saw The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana, and Ortiz) collied with The Pinnacle (Cash Wheeler, Dax Harwood, MJF, Shawn Spears, and Wardlow). MJF’s team came out on top as he threw Chris Jericho off the top of the cage, the spot which has been highly criticized.
