Guess ITV handles ad breaks differently than Sky Sports which was WWE's previous network home.

Then again ITV also has a pretty bad track record recently when it comes to handling wrestling. Killed World of Sport's revival because of their general incompetence.

Ultra Mantis 09-25-2019 08:04 PM

US TV has twice as many ad breaks as UK TV so it's a TV standards regulated issue. When it comes to live shows I'm pretty sure (at least this is what they used to do) Sky Sports gets around it by running less commercials than usual per ad break and just throwing up the WWE logo until they come back on, which is basically dead air.

Emperor Smeat 09-25-2019 08:10 PM

That was something I noticed a lot whenever the RAW/Smackdown stream I was watching came from the UK.

Replace all that dead air with hockey commercials and that pretty much is how its aired in Canada via Sportsnet whenever a stream was from there.

Nothing to do with AEW, just comical that Mox is a goofy cartoon after bitching about goofy cartoon shit. Even if I was as big of a mark for AEW as Kenny Omega, I would still find it hysterical that the guy who hates goofy cartoon shit is a literal goofy cartoon. You can't write comedy any better!

Ultra Mantis 09-28-2019 08:39 PM

Being drawn by DC Comics is totally the same thing as being a Bane cosplayer with a pet houseplant who gets gigantic needles shoved up his bum. Got it.

Mr. Nerfect 09-28-2019 09:16 PM

Hating the goofy shit and being turned into a DC Comic aren’t the same thing, but he does look like a redneck Triple H.

Nearly a week after their UK TV deal was announced, AEW has their Canadian TV partner locked and loaded.

Starting Wednesday, AEW Dynamite will air live on TSN reported by PWInsider and confirmed by Dave Meltzer. No other details were announced at this time.

There is a considerable history between TSN and pro wrestling as WWE, WCW, AWA, and Stampede Wrestling have appeared on their airwaves over the years in addition to Michael Landsberg conducting several notable wrestling interviews on his Off The Record show.

ITV announced last Wednesday that Dynamite will air on ITV4 Sunday mornings, a four-day delay followed by a one-hour highlight show on Monday nights. They also announced AEW Plus, a Fite.TV powered service that will let international viewers watch the show live for $4.99 a month. After some negative reaction, AEW president Tony Khan tweeted last Thursday that he is trying to work with ITV to air it on Thursdays.

AEW Dynamite debuts at 8 PM Eastern this Wednesday on TNT in the U.S.

That adds up since by the time Cody and The Elite held All In a few months later, there were already some rumblings of someone being interested in starting a potential new promotion and All In quickly catching Kahn's attention.

Kahn was also only interested in Omega, The Young Bucks, and Hangman Page to be the core of his new promotion and help set everything up. Wasn't interested in Cody and only brought him in after Omega and the Bucks managed to convince him it would be a very good idea to do so.

RaginRonic 10-01-2019 04:45 AM

This is the biggest possible deal that AEW could sign here in Canada.

To think about TSN's reach, they are also part of what was, 9 years ago, an Olympic broadcasting consortium that televised the highest-rated TV program Canada's ever aired....the 2010 Men's Olympic Hockey Championship between the U.S. and Canada, where Sidney Crosby, from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, scored the biggest international hockey goal, for a title, that Hockey Canada is responsible for....at 7:40 in OverTime to sink the U.S., 3-2.

That game attracted an average audience of 16.6 million viewers, with 26.5 million watching SOME part of that game. Canada had a population of about 33.4 million people, so that pretty well meant that the promotional power of that consortium, mostly led by TSN's owners, Bell Media(also owners of the CTV Television Network, TSN's primary network partner), proved very fruitful at that time. It's something that, sadly, the CBC could never hope to do whether they hold the Olympic broadcast rights or not in this country.

And for the record, TSN's main studios are located at 9 Channel Nine Court in Scarborough, Ontario, which is a part of the City of Toronto, and sits on that city's eastern third.

Just some backgrounder there for those here who don't know what TSN is =)....and it looks like more ring action just got dumped on me. XD
