AEW has been in news for a long time now, from breaking their viewership records to a potential signing of the two biggest free agents in the pro-wrestling business. Jon Moxley sat in an interview and cleared the air between Domino’s and AEW.

The past week, AEW has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. On the last week’s AEW Dynamite: Fight for the Fallen episode a Domino’s Pizza advertisement played while Nick Gage was slicing Chris Jericho‘s forehead with a pizza cutter.

This coincidence received a lot of backlash for Tony Khan’s company and Domino’s subsequently said that they might never air their commercial for AEW on TNT.

Jon Moxley intervenes in the AEW controversy with a hilarious comment

Speaking with Tony Pike of Cincy 3:60, Moxley says that the incident was a mere coincidence, and it was under no one’s control. He further added that Domino’s should “chill” and forget about the situation.

He hilariously added deathmatch legend Nick Gage can help the fast-food giant to sell some pizzas.

“Domino’s Pizza needs to chill out, they need to chill man. It was a coincidence. Jump on the bandwagon man. You don’t think Nick Gage can sell some pizzas for you? Come on. You don’t think the Noid is played out at this point? You’re bringing back the Noid? Come on.” Moxley said.

In the same interview, Moxley said that Jericho and Gage’s match on Dynamite was the clash of the generations. He said that he had wrestled both the wrestlers in his life but he never imagined that Nick and Chris would square off against each other (H/T: Fightful).

“It was awesome, I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited or nervous to watch a match ever. I know both of those guys from two different periods of my life so well, and those two different universes I would’ve never imagined merging. It was like ‘what? Am I doing some d**** that I didn’t remember that I took right now?”

“What’s going on with the world right now?’ I was standing back there with Eddie (Kingston). We were watching on the monitor; he’s going up for the Frankensteiner and we’re like holding hands, like ‘oh my god.’ That match freaking ruled man. That was awesome.” Moxley concluded.

Honestly, this is the best time to be a wrestling fan because nobody would have ever imagined this crossover between Domino’s and pro-wrestling.
