The following trailer is real. It is not a leftover April Fool’s joke. There really is a movie titled Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies – and it looks gloriously bug nuts.
With WrestleMania happening this weekend, it’s no wonder that filmmaker Cody Knotts would choose now to release the crazy trailer for his low budget zombie epic Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies. The movie is about exactly what the title implies. I have no problem saying nothing you will see at WrestleMania this weekend, or have seen at any past WrestleMania, will blow your mind like the sight of “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan beating zombies to death with his trusty 2×4 or Kurt Angle anklelocking a zombie until its foot pops off.
“Rowdy” Roddy Piper is also once again out of bubble gum so he, too, shows up to kick some zombie ass. Also grappling with the undead are the likes of Matt Hardy, “The Franchise” Shane Douglas, and, since every cast member can’t be an actual pro wrestler, Penthouse Pet Taya Parker.
Writer-director Cody Knotts has described his film online as follows:
“The film is about big, powerful men and hot babes killing zombies with good old American violence. There are no fancy karate moves, just traditional kicking and slamming heads on tables, which is why we call it ‘old violence’.”
According to IMDB, “Roddy Piper put one of the stuntmen in the hospital with repeated blows to the head with a pot. The pot was given to the stuntman as a gift.”
If the trailer for Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombes, which is mostly just two minutes of wrestler vs. zombie action set to the tune of Accept’s “Fast as a Shark,” is a sign of things to come, the only way this could be any crazier would be if it were a Mad Max knock-off with pro wrestlers running around the post-apocalypse beating each other to death with steel chairs. Or will that be the sequel?
