Call it a different path. WWE has been trying to expand beyond being just a wrestling company for years now and that is going to be the case for a long time to come. This includes making movies under the WWE Studios banner, which have had hit or miss results. Now they are trying it again, though this time it is going to be unlike anything they have ever done before.
According to Bloodydisgusting.com, Undertaker and New Day will be starring in a new interactive Halloween film debuting on Netflix. The movie, called Escape The Undertaker, will focus on Undertaker setting a trap for New Day at his mansion with viewers making decisions to help New Day escape. The film will be released on October 5. WWE has worked with Netflix before, including a wrestling themed film called The Main Event.
This is one of those things that is hard to imagine. Check out Undertaker and New Day on their own and the closest thing they have had to interaction:
Opinion: This is one of those things that got my attention as soon as I saw the headline and that is what NXT is going for here. I’m curious to see how this works and while I don’t expect it to be anything great, it certainly sounds like fun. Doing something like that could be a good thing for WWE and it is cool enough to see WWE working with a major company like Netflix.
