Originally published at RDS in Canada to no longer air AEW Dynamite after four-month relationship
RDS in Canada revealed that Wednesday night’s edition of AEW Dynamite was the final broadcast of the promotion on the station.
The following statement was issued on the La Lutte à RDS Facebook page following Wednesday’s New Year’s Smash show (translated to English):
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for joining us tonight and the past few weeks.
Sadly, Dynamite tonight was our last broadcast of AEW in French on RDS.
Due to budget constraints, we unfortunately won’t be back in 2023.
Thanks again to everyone who has joined our fall dates, see you next time… let’s hope so.
The wrestling team in RDS.
The deal with RDS was announced this past August with the show often streaming on the RDS website or airing on the RDS Info channel rather than the main network.
RDS aired a French-language version of the show with its own team of broadcasters calling the show each week.
AEW Dynamite will continue to be available in English on TSN across the country, where it regularly airs on TSN 2 on Wednesday nights. AEW Rampage streams on Friday nights on TSN Direct.
