Domino’s Not Pleased With Use Of Pizza Cutter In An AEW Match

“Stop it, for god’s sake, stop it!” begged the iconic pro wrestling commentator Jim Ross as he witnessed Nick Gage take a pizza cutter to legendary pro wrestler Chris Jericho’s forehead during a No Rules Match on the latest episode of AEW Dynamite — which was then immediately followed by a Domino’s Pizza commercial shown alongside the action.

And it looks like Domino’s themselves echo Ross’ statements as the chain was none too pleased with the awkward but random moment, quickly issuing the following statement regarding the grisly match incident:

“We share the concerns expressed about this incident and the content of this TV-14 rated program, and are assessing our advertising presence on it going forward,” Domino’s spokeswoman Jenny Fouracre-Petko told Front Office Sports. 

No word yet on if Domino’s will actually be pulling future advertising on subsequent AEW programming, although they have made clear their concerned stance on Jericho’s forehead being treated like pizza dough.

“This No Rules Match will continue through the break in picture in picture.” Ha, and continued it did.

News of Popeyes debuting their own chicken nuggets spread like wildfire earlier this month, with many speculating that they would be the bite-sized equivalent of the chain’s now legendary chicken sandwich.
