AEW To Air Live In Canada
Good news to my fellow canuck wrestling fans: AEW will air live each week. PWInsider is reporting that a deal is in place for AEW Dynamite to air on TSN every Wednesday night at 8 pm. No official announcement is in place at the time of writing, but Nick Jackson did Tweet out a Canadian flag.

TSN was the former home for WWE programming until 2006 when it moved to The Score (now known as Sportsnet 360). The Wednesday Night War has moved into Canadian territory, eh?
