A commercial for Pabst Blue Ribbon ran during Wednesday night’s episode of AEW Dynamite: Homecoming. Pabst stepped in to advertise for the show after Domino’s reportedly withdrew their sponsorship after last Wednesday’s controversial match between Jon Moxley and Nick Gage, which featured the use of a pizza cutter during the match.
PBR Brand Manager Corey Small released a statement, which you can see below:
“We are proud to support independent wrestling, and debut Pabst Blue Ribbon’s first ever cable advert with the Michael Jordan of wrestling figure collecting and GCW world champion, Matt Cardona. Matt’s embodiment of having fun and betting on yourself is what independent wrestling and Pabst Blue Ribbon are all about. We work directly with creatives, artists, and athletes like Matt, which allows us to move quickly, like producing this commercial in-house to air within 4 days. It’s fast and furious and fun. #MajorPBR forever.”
In other news, AEW Superstar Max Caster is no longer set to compete for Beyond Wrestling later today. The company announced that Caster will no longer be appearing on tonight’s show and now Wheeler Yuta will face Slade in a non-title match. This comes after Caster was the subject of controversy for a rap that he had done on AEW Dark, which was quickly edited out following the initial broadcast on YouTube. You can check out the official announcement below:
