Frontofficesports.com obtained a statement from Domino’s spokeswoman Jenny Fouracre-Petko regarding the spot…
“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.
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.”
The article noted that Domino’s could potentially pull its advertising schedule from AEW broadcasts.
