Domino's is not cool with their ads being played after a pro wrestler cuts somebody's face with a pizza slicer

In Wednesday’s episode of “Dynamite” on TNT, AEW star Chris Jericho went up against legendary deathmatch wrestler Nick Gage in a no disqualification match that featured baseball bats, panes of glass, fluorescent light tubes, and more. At one point during the match, Gage used a pizza slicer and appeared to cut Jericho’s forehead. At the same time, AEW ran a picture-in-picture ad for Dominos that began with someone cutting up a pizza using a pizza slicer.

“Domino’s was not involved, nor had any foreknowledge, of the gory scene on the ‘AEW: Dynamite’ main event Wednesday night that showed wrestler Nick Gage apparently slicing Chris Jericho’s head open with a pizza cutter,” a Domino’s spokesperson said in a statement to Front Office Sports. “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.”
