Woah! Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies never ceases to amaze me. As a wrestling fan myself, I was psyched to see a movie concept to work wrestling and zombies together. I knew that Shane “The Franchise” Douglas was on board as a producer and plays himself in the film; so I was pretty sure the film would rock. Now, with the latest casting updates, I’m so sure the film will kick ass that I would risk my life in the ring with any of the talented individuals added to Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies! Here’s the line up…
Shane “The Franchise” Douglas – 4 time ECW World Heavyweight Champion and former NWA World Heavyweight Champion. Mr. Douglas will play himself in the movie, as a self-absorbed wrestler hiding a dark past.
