Flatbush Zombies Recreate a Hilarious New Day Wrestling Promo
The World Wrestling Entertainment, better known to wrestling fans as the WWE, is getting ready to put on its second-biggest show of the year with SummerSlam, set to take place this Sunday (Aug. 21), at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Returning for a second time to the borough of Brooklyn, this year's SummerSlam card looks to be an epic one that should provide plenty of jaw-dropping moments and entertainment. With SummerSlam's return, XXL decided to reach out to Flatbush Zombies, who are both wrestling fanatics and Brooklyn natives, to recreate some wrestling magic in honor of WWE's upcoming PPV.
After recreating yesterday Harlem Heat's infamous 1997 Spring Stampede promo aimed at Hulk Hogan, the Flatbush Zombies are back at it again with the re-creation of another wrestling promo. This time around, the guys portray WWE's reigning tag team champions, the New Day. Dressed from head to toe in New Day's attire, Zombie member Juice plays the role of Xavier Woods while Erick The Architect plays Kofi Kingston and Meech plays the role of Big E. The hilarious skit recreated by the Zombies is from New Day's energetic Raw promo from a few months back on April 25. The end result turned out to be quite hilarious as the Brooklyn collective gets in full New Day mode.
This new version of the New Day skit is the second wrestling promo that the guys did with XXL. See how the Zombies, who dropped their debut album, 3001: A Laced Odyssey, in March, stack up to the original New Day wrestling promo below.
