In the most pro wrestling thing ever, Pabst Blue Ribbon scored a commercial on AEW Dynamite following the Domino's fallout last Wednesday.
A Domino's ad aired following Nick Gage using a pizza cutter on Chris Jericho during last Wednesday's Dynamite, which led to Domino's issuing a statement that they would "assess their advertising presence" moving forward.
PBR immediately jumped in on social media.
Yo @AEWonTNT let us get those spots— Pabst Blue Ribbon (@PabstBlueRibbon) July 29, 2021
They got the ad spot, airing a commercial during AEW Dynamite that featured Matt Cardona, Chelsea Green, Hornswoggle, Brian Myers, and other members of the Major Wrestling Figure podcast.
Cardona has a sponsorship with PBR and wanted to celebrate his GCW World Title win with PBR before the fans had other ideas.
PBR put out the following statement:
“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.” Corey Smale, Brand Manager – Pabst Blue Ribbon
