More evidence that Smackdown is moving to Thursdays

Haven currently airs after Smackdown on Friday but is moving to Thursday nights at 10pm. So that's more evidence that Smackdown is moving to Thursday. SyFy likes airing the show after Smackdown because they get some of the wrestling audience that sticks around to watch Edge (Adam Copeland) on the show. If Smackdown does move to Thursdays then it may be an issue in Canada since Sportsnet has a deal with the NHL to air Thursday night games and the NHL is the most valuable programming for Sportsnet. That could mean that WWE would air (at least during hockey season) on Fridays in Canada.
