WWE live shows are a massive way for WWE to make money. They’ve been putting on untelevised house shows like these since the dawn of the industry and they’ve always served them well. Only now It seems as though WWE’s Canadian tour is in jeopardy of being cancelled or at least postponed.
They announced the Canadian tour earlier this year, the company eager to get back out there after the constrictions of the pandemic were over. Now those plans seem to be in question of complete cancelation or at least mere postponement.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer made this statement on Twitter:
“The WWE Canadian dates in January have been pulled (Winnipeg & Edmonton had good advances so it’s not ticket sales) are now off the schedule. Appears Toronto as well but we are checking.”
He followed that up with another tweet, this one stating that the date had simply been moved.
“WWE has moved its Winnipeg date to September 30, 2022.”
The postponement is a massive one and Canadian fans will look like they have to wait almost a whole year before they get to see any live WWE action.
Wrestle Tix made the following statements on Twitter as well regarding the tour:
“The WWE shows in Canada look to be in jeopardy from January 21st-January 24th. Those dates included Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, and Edmonton. Now, they have new cities list for those dates: Nashville, TN, Corbin, KY, Huntington, WV and Toledo, OH.
I don’t see the Toronto December date listed anymore either but the Laval, Quebec date is. Ticketmaster pages are still active for these shows but that could change any minute. The Winnipeg & Edmonton shows had strong advances.”
More news will be forthcoming as developments occur and we will keep you posted if any more news breaks on the matter. For now, the Laval and Montreal shows seem to be okay, but we’ll keep our eyes on it moving forward.
