SLAM! Wrestling is reporting that WWE Smackdown will move to Wednesday nights in Canada. The move will take place on Wednesday, January 14, 2015 with the show airing from 8-10 PM on Sportsnet 360. Obviously this means the show will air in Canada before it airs in the United States.

Complicating matters is that Smackdown will now compete with WWE NXT in Canada as it will move to Wednesday nights following the move to Thursday nights in the United States. An obvious solution would be to air NXT at the 10 PM hour following Smackdown on the Canadian version of WWE Network, called WWE Net Pak, which Rogers calls a "sample of the best WWE Network programming."

We've already confirmed there are no plans for Smackdown to go live, which means the show will air in Canada approximately 24 hours after it's taped on Tuesday nights.
