AEW and Domino’s Pizza have been going back and forth at each other ever since the last AEW Dynamite: Fight for the Fallen aired on TNT. Jim Cornette took to Twitter and wrote his displeasure about the fact that AEW superstar Jon Moxley told Domino’s to “chill”.

This whole back and forth started due to an occurrence that happened in last week’s Dynamite. During the main event between Chris Jericho and Nick Gage which was NO DQ deathmatch, there was a spot when Gage used a pizza cutter and used it on Jericho’s head.

The spot took place just as an advertisement of Domino’s was running in which a pizza was getting prepared before the delivery.

“Way to calm down a pissed off sponsor there, Zippy. You actually think sane, normal people want to be associated with this donkey show with 2 legs and 3 teeth? @dominos is the big time, like your former employer, which is why you couldn’t make it when you were in it.” Jim wrote.
