During a recent appearance on the “Wrestling Perspective” podcast, John Hennigan commented on the infamous Zombie Lumberjack Match that took place at WWE WrestleMania: Backlash 2021, Damian Priest’s reaction to being told about the bout, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On telling Damian Priest about the match: “I heard about the match and told Damian Priest what we’re doing. He walked over to The Miz and said, “what the f**k is John talking about, some weird sh*t? Like, he said, we are having a zombie lumberjack match; is he just f**king with me or what?”
On why he enjoyed the match: “To be honest, I loved it, it’s so weird, and it did not make any sense. Then again, wrestling doesn’t have to make sense. So we both got eaten by zombies and then just came back the week after.”
On being ribbed by Scotty 2 Hotty about it: “The craziest part of that whole day was that there’s this one zombie that followed me around for five minutes and kept kind of touching me. I didn’t want to be rude to him, but finally I said get the f**k away from me, and it was Scotty 2 Hotty. He had such good makeup on that I didn’t know it was him. I was trying to be really polite because I didn’t know who these people were, and I knew that they had spent hours in this prosthetic makeup stuff. Yeah, bro. He got me so good that day.”
