AEW and WWE’s NXT brand have the Wednesday Night War in the United States, but that same competition didn’t exist in Canada until now.
Sportsnet 360 will begin airing WWE NXT on February 24th. They will air the show at the same time as AEW Dynamite airs on TSN.
It will be interesting to see if the Wednesday Night Wars pan out the same in Canada as it does every week in the United States. AEW consistently wins in ratings and viewership, although both shows have diminished in popularity in recent memory. The competition is still very interesting to watch unfold every week.
We’ll have to see if WWE makes any big plans for NXT to capture the interest of Canadian fans to really kick their new television deal into motion. It is interesting that USA Network might have to make a decision between NXT and the NHL as NBC Sports Network closes in 2021, but the war is just getting started in Canada.
