Domino's Pizza has issued a statement regarding a commercial for the company playing during last night's AEW Dynamite main event immediately after Nick Gage used a pizza cutter on Chris Jericho's forehead. 

In a statement to Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports, Domino's denied any involvement with the pizza cutter spot and said that they did not know about it ahead of time.

Additionally, Domino's is considering whether or not to continue advertising on Dynamite going forward, according to the Front Office Sports report.  

“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,” spokesperson Jenny Fouracre-Petko told McCarthy. 

The pizza cutter incident took place during the second in a series of Five Labours of Jericho matches, where MJF lays out an opponent and a stipulation for Jericho to overcome. After defeating Shawn Spears and Gage, Jericho will take on Juventud Guerrera on next week's AEW Dynamite. 

Last night's Dynamite averaged 1,108,000 viewers on TNT, the fourth-best number in the history of the series.
