Fight Network, the world’s premier 24/7 multi-platform channel dedicated to complete coverage of combat sports, today announced a programming deal with independent Canadian professional wrestling organization WrestleCentre to broadcast a weekly 1-hour series across the U.S., Canada and globally in over 30 countries in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Premiering on July 19, the weekly WrestleCentre Voltage series will air on Wednesdays at 2 a.m. ET in Canada, a late-night expansion of Fight Network’s Tuesday professional wrestling block, including TNA Wrestling content such as its two-hour flagship weekly program IMPACT WRESTLING and TNA Wrestling’s Greatest Matches, plus Ring of Honor Wrestling. A special 90-minute edition of WrestleCentre Votage will premiere on July 14 at 11:30 p.m. ET leading into the series debut the following week.
Fight Network’s extensive slate of professional wrestling programming also includes New Japan Pro Wrestling, Paragon Pro Wrestling, CMLL Wrestling and AAA: Lucha Libre Worldwide from Mexico, as well as Insane Championship Wrestling and British Wrestling Weekly from the U.K.
Based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, WrestleCentre is the largest professional wrestling promotion in Canada. Since 2014, events have featured international stars such as Ethan Carter III, Christopher Daniels, Samoa Joe, Jake Roberts, Colt Cabana, Matt Sydal and 2 Cold Scorpio, plus local favorites JP Simms, Matt Bullen, Speedball Mike Bailey, Jeremy Prophet, Chip Chambers, Richard Shinary and Tommy Starr.
“We have sought out the best professional wrestling promotions from around the world to be featured on Fight Network, so it’s only fitting that a top Canadian organization has now found a broadcast home, not only across the country but all over the world, giving Canadian performers a platform to shine globally,” said Chad Midgley, VP of Fight Network.
“WrestleCentre brings something different to the table with its Voltage TV show,” said Jason Mosher, Executive Producer of WrestleCentre. “We put the storytelling back in professional wrestling all while showcasing the best in-ring talent from across Canada and beyond. We mix some of the best renown professional wrestlers in the world with some of the best independent wrestlers that Canada has to offer.”
