ESPN Classics Canada won't go Raw
By JON WALDMAN -- SLAM! Wrestling


Despite rumours, ESPN Classics Canada will not be changing their wrestling programming.

Reports surfaced last week that the specialty channel operated by TSN would begin to show episodes of WWE Raw in place of programming that has included classic footage of FCW, USWA and the UWF among others.

Andrea Goldstein, communications manager for ESPN Classics Canada and the other TSN networks, said that this is not the case. "ESPN Classic Canada will not be televising episodes of RAW in its wrestling timeslot," she said. "ESPN Classic Canada will continue to televise Classic Wrestling every Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET (its regular wrestling timeslot)."

Goldstein went on to address the much talked-about change. "At one time, there was speculation that ESPNCC would televise RAW, but this is no longer the case."

Here's the wrestling schedule for ESPN Classic Canada over the next couple of months. All times EST:
