Global Force Wrestling, the company owned by Jeff Jarrett, current president of the company, has begun to make new shows. The company has given its first event after several months of uncertainty about the future of the brand after the failed merger process with Impact Wrestling.
The live event took place last Wednesday, December 27 in Nashville, Tennessee in collaboration with the company Tried and True Wrestling. Jeff Jarrett was present with his wife Karen Jarrett and WWE Hall of Famers Jerry “The King” Lawler and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat. The show was attended by the players of the university football teams of the Kentucky Wildcats and the Northwestern Wildcats, on the occasion of the celebration of the twenty-second Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl.
At the moment there is no data on under the card presented by GFW, but there were announced fighters like James Storm, Rebel, Crimson and Jax Dane. Before the show, the players, coaches, and officials of both teams went to a private event at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. There they met with Jeff and Karen Jarrett, Lawler and Steamboat for a Meet-and-Greet (to meet and greet those present). The president of GFW, Jeff Jarrett, has commented on the event:
“First and foremost, I want to thank the folks at the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, especially President and CEO Scott Ramsey and Vice President of Events, Jay Grider.” We were excited when they asked us to come back. everyone and we hope that the rest of the players and coaches have as much fun as we do.
I’d be rude if I did not thank everyone in WWE for helping me make this possible. “
In this way, Jeff Jarrett continues with his company after his departure from Impact Wrestling. It should be remembered that Jarret started with GFW in 2014, found it after his departure from TNA Wrestling. The company won multiple partnerships around the world and made recordings in Las Vegas, Nevada, for its television project, Amped. The company began to decline for months, not getting a TV deal and only performing live events in small venues.
Jarrett returned to Impact earlier this year, acting as a consultant in the Impact Creative Area and helping Anthem to reach international agreements, such as Pro-Wrestling NOAH, AAA, The Crash or the failed World of Sports project in England.
In April the merger between the companies was announced, renaming the company as Global Force and unifying the belts with those of Impact. After months of relationship, on September 5 it was revealed that Jeff Jarrett had left his position indefinitely, due to personal problems with the alcohol he was facing. At the end of October, the dismissal of Jarrett was confirmed and Impact returned to its former name. Jarrett has gone through two months of rehabilitation paid by WWE to recover.
