After teasing it last night, it has now been revealed that Bobby Roode will indeed be at the first GFW television taping that is taking place later this month in Las Vegas. The former world heavyweight champion is being allowed to add his star power to help the new promotion get up off the ground. He is still under contract to TNA.

Since Bobby Roode is considered one of the best overall performers in the entire professional wrestling industry, it was an easy decision for TNA to want to keep him around. John Gaburick has managed to pull that off. A new contract has been signed between the two sides, and the former world heavyweight champion will be with the company for at least another year. Roode has long maintained that he is loyal to promotion that gave him a chance.
