Former TNA wrestler Jeff Jarrett officially announced his new wrestling franchise – Global Force Wrestling – earlier this month, and has promised that it will be the: “most fan friendly and interactive professional wrestling company in the world.”
The promotion’s television product will be produced by 25/7 Promotions and NBC’s Dave Broome. Although no TV deal is currently in place, and no date has been set for the organisation’s debut, Broome has stated that the promotion plan’s to create new content on air 52 weeks per year.
Twelve-time World Champion Jarrett, who co-founded the TNA Wrestling franchise in 2002, is currently travelling the world his wife Karen, laying the groundwork for GFW.
Last week GFW announced that the first name signed to their roster would be Scottish talent David ‘The Renegade’ Scougall, while earlier this week they welcomed former NASCAR driver Hermie Sadler to their Board of Directors.
“Hermie and I have been friends for more than 20 years,” Jarrett said of Sadler’s arrival. “Yes, he has been a great driver for years, but I have always admired him for his business acumen. He also fits with GFW because he understands the importance of fan interaction as clearly all of NASCAR does.
“Hermie is a dedicated family man, and Karen and I and everyone at GFW could not be happier to have him on the board.”
The franchise has been speculatively linked to many top class wrestlers who could be available over the coming months, including the likes of AJ Styles, Matt Morgan, Crimson and CM Punk.
