Bleacher Report gave the film a positive review stating "It isn't trying to be smart or groundbreaking, just a lot of big, silly, violent fun." but noted that the movie would appeal most to wrestling fans, as some of the plot's elements and humor are confusing, as they require that the viewer has prior knowledge of the wrestlers' history.  Though Fangoria panned the film overall, as they felt that "Instead of capitalizing on the concept and going full-force, PRO WRESTLERS VS. ZOMBIES stretches its novelty to the breaking point by sitting on a repetitive story structure." 
Like the Kingpin, Ted DiBiase can fight extremely well if he has to. But his real powers are those of capitalism and influence. In his most famous storyline, it was the Million Dollar Man who ended Hulk Hogan’s epic four-year title reign by first buying the contract of Andre the Giant, then paying off a referee’s evil twin to call the match in Andre’s favor, and finally bribing Andre to hand over the belt. When the powers-that-be ruled a title couldn’t be bough or sold, DiBiase nearly won the title legitimately anyway, until Hulk Hogan interfered. The point is that while he may or may not have the power to beat Spider-Man in a fight, his ability to turn every aspect of the world against his foe—and his supervillain cackle—is what really makes him dangerous.
Today, joshi isn't nearly as popular as it was in its heyday, but a smaller, dedicated contingent carries the torch. Sure, audiences for female wrestling matches remain largely male, and the athletes' wild, flashy costumes and outsized personalities play into the sport's entertainment value, but the ring is still a sacred place for these female athletes. Stepping into it, they shed society's conventions. "I have met so many [wrestlers] that are so sweet and shy outside the ring," one wrestler told Reuters photographer Thomas Peter , "and then you get into the ring and they explode."
