Jeff Jarrett
If Jeff Jarrett wants Global Force Wrestling to do well right off the bat, then he's going to need some familiar faces on the show. Though he has been gone from WWE for quite some time now, John Morrison remains a familiar face with wrestling fans. The two of them are booked for a match against one another at an independent wrestling show on December 6, and Morrison has acknowledged that they will be discussing some business backstage.

Dixie Carter
Reports have surfaced that TNA will announce their new television deal before the end of October. It is being said that Dixie Carter has informed business partners that an announcement is coming soon, in hopes of alleviating some of the concerns that they currently have with Impact Wrestling. Still no word yet on which network the company will be signing on with, though.

Justin Roberts
When Justin Roberts was given his release from WWE after Monday Night Raw ended, there were a good amount of people who were upset with the company for dropping him unceremoniously. Overwhelmed by the support, the announcer went online and asked fans not to be angry. He stated that he was able to live out his dream for several years. Roberts was one of the more well liked guys backstage because of his passion and enthusiasm for the business.
October 15, 2014
Kurt Angle
While reports have surfaced that Kurt Angle has indeed been in negotiation with WWE on his final contract in the business, the former world heavyweight champion has not ruled out a potential return to TNA because the company is more than willing to give him the part time deal that he prefers. Angle has publicly stated that this will be his final contract as a wrestler, and he wants to try to gain more ground in Hollywood.

Jeff Jarrett
After doing a heel turn and joining the Bullet Club not too long ago, Jeff Jarrett returned to New Japan and continued the story line this week. The former world heavyweight champion crashed a press conference and declared himself as the Chairman of the Bullet Club. Jarrett has a business relationship with New Japan, so the story could transition over to Global Force Wrestling as well.
October 13, 2014
Brock Lesnar
With Brock Lesnar taking the WWE championship home with him during his typical break from the business, Paul Heyman has been left hanging. The massively popular manager has been omitted from a couple of episodes of Monday Night Raw, including the latest one. Management simply cannot find something for him to do while Lesnar is not on television.

Jeff Jarrett
Looks like Jeff Jarrett has made a major stride in the formation of Global Force Wrestling. It has now been announced that the promotion will be doing a pay per view on January 4, 2015. Since he has a business relationship with New Japan, and they do their biggest pay per view event on that day, there are speculations that Jarrett could be promoting that show as a GFW branded event in the United States.

Jack Swagger
Wade Barrett hasn't been on television in quite some time now because he suffered a shoulder injury during a match with Jack Swagger. He was recently up in Toronto, so he sought the help of Trish Stratus, a former WWE diva who now runs a successful yoga business. Barrett stated that the workout session with Trish helped his shoulder feel a bit better.

Bobby Lashley
For MMA fighters, you only have a certain amount of time in the business, so you want to get as many fights as humanly possible before you retire. Bobby Lashley is fully aware of this theory, and he embraces it. The TNA star won a fight earlier this month for Bellator, and he's already scheduled for another one next month at a show in Kansas.
September 22, 2014
Paul Heyman
For those that do not keep up with him outside of WWE, Paul Heyman actually has a ton of things going on in his professional life. In fact, things have picked up so much that he has now moved to Los Angeles to be closer to his business ventures. It has now been revealed that he is renting a house out there. Heyman should still be able to continue working with WWE.

Jeff Jarrett
Pretty soon, Antarctica might become the only continent where Jeff Jarrett does not have a business deal for Global Force Wrestling. It has now been revealed that he has secured deals in Australia and New Zealand. Jarrett has signed contracts with promotions in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Auckland. The belief is that the former world heavyweight champion is not done securing deals yet.
August 26, 2014
Roddy Piper
Roddy Piper recently did a one man show, and he took that opportunity to bash Vince McMahon. The WWE legend pointed out that his longtime employer has failed miserably as a concert promoter, bodybuilding promoter and football promoter. Piper went on to say that McMahon has only succeeded as a promoter in the business that his father handed to him.
August 25, 2014
John Cena
During a recent video interview with Supertraining Gym in Sacramento, John Cena was asked about a potential heel turn, something that fans have been speculating about for years online. The former WWE champion flat out stated that it will never happen. Cena said that he had it in him to make it work, but management will never pull the trigger on such a move because it does not make sense for business.
August 24, 2014
Bully Ray
In a sign of how much power he has gained backstage, Bully Ray was recently put in charge of a talent meeting to explain to the performers that TNA was still going to remain in business. The former world heavyweight champion has been given access to details of the negotiations that the company has undertaken with the various television networks.
August 17, 2014
Batista
In another sign that he is moving closer to a full jump to Hollywood, Batista recently discussed his wishes for a retirement match. The former WWE champion would like to do another big match at Wrestlemania against Triple H, who he feels is still the best worker in the business. Management might be willing to do that at Wrestlemania 31 to capitalize on his name value being increased because of Guardians of the Galaxy.
August 15, 2014
Hulk Hogan
There's a little battle brewing right now between two of the greatest WWE stars of all time. Recently, Steve Austin stated that he was the best draw that the business has ever seen. When asked about the statement, Hulk Hogan argued that he was the best by stating that his career was twice as long as the one Austin had. This does not appear to be a promotional thing since the two of them will not be doing a match together.
August 15, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Rumors are spreading that Alberto Del Rio could possibly become one of the bigger names to sign with Jeff Jarrett and Global Force Wrestling. The speculation is due to the fact that the two of them will both be at TripleMania this weekend. Jarrett has a business relationship with AAA and will be wrestling at the pay per view, while Del Rio, fresh off of a controversial release from WWE, will be making an appearance.
August 12, 2014
Drew McIntyre
For the longest time, WWE fans wanted to see Drew McIntyre winning championships in the company. That didn't happen often enough, and he ended up on the receiving end of a release from his contract. The former 3MB member has found a renewed sense of passion for the business. In addition to being rewarded with the Evolve championship, which he won from Kassius Ohno, McIntyre has been receiving praise from fans for some of intense promos that he has been cutting.

Jesse Sorensen
Back in May, Jesse Sorensen, who gained a bit of notoriety whenever TNA released him from his front office job after he severely injured his neck while working for the company as a wrestler, suffered a broken foot. Doctors had to insert 4 plates and 13 screws into his ankle. Sorensen revealed that he is now able to start working out that leg again, but he has not revealed any details about his future in the business.
August 9, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
Based on what she has accomplished, Vickie Guerrero has inspired several of the performers backstage in WWE. She was able to leave the business and start a new career. Guerrero went to college while working on the road for WWE. A lot of performers have long been worried if it would be possible for them to leave the road and settle into a new life.

Diego
During the Extreme Rules 2014 kickoff match, El Torito defeated Hornswoggle. He picked up the pin fall victory after jumping off the top rope and driving Hornswoggle through the table. Miniature tables and ladders were utilized during the WeeLC match. Diego, Fernando, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre were all involved in the match.

Antonio Cesaro
In an action filled Wrestlemania 30 kickoff match, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso retained the WWE tag team championship by defeating Diego, Fernando, Curtis Axel, Ryback, Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro in a fatal four way elimination tag team bout. Afterwards, Cesaro did a face turn after Swagger attempted to attack him for being pinned.
April 6, 2014
Jey Uso
Rumor has it that there are several people backstage in WWE that are disappointed with how Antonio Cesaro is being utilized at Wrestlemania 30. Instead of being given a big singles match on the pay per view, he is working a kickoff match with Jack Swagger. It also features Jimmy Usu, Jey Uso, Fernando, Diego, Ryback and Curtis Axel.
April 4, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Initially, the belief was that the tag team championships were going to be given some spotlight by WWE at their biggest pay per view of the year, but it has now been announced that Ryback, Curtis Axel, Fernando, Diego, Antonio Cesaro, Jack Swagger, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso are being moved to the Wrestlemania 30 kickoff match spot.
April 1, 2014
Carlos Colon
When Carlos Colon was announced as an inductee into the WWE hall of fame at Wrestlemania 30, some were under the belief that Diego and Fernando would be receiving a little push in order to promote the induction. However, it is much too late to do that, so management might simply put the two of them into the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal match instead.
March 19, 2014
Carlos Colon
While nothing has been made official yet in regards to who will be inducting Carlos Colon, Carlito has revealed that he will be definitely be at Wrestlemania 30 to watch his father being inducted into the hall of fame that weekend. The belief is that WWE will have the former US champion, Diego and Fernando all inducting Colon in the segment.
March 18, 2014
Carlito
Since the company is expected to have Carlito, Diego and Fernando all inducting Carlos Colon into the hall of fame at Wrestlemania 30, there are talks that WWE could try to convince the former United States Heavyweight Champion to make his return as an in ring performer. The Los Matadores gimmick has not exactly drawn in the fans, so the trio could be paired together.
March 17, 2014
Carlos Colon
Even though he did not leave the company on the best of terms, Carlito is said to be returning to WWE at Wrestlemania 30 to induct his father Carlos Colon into the hall of fame. The belief is that his brother Diego and his cousin Fernando will also be a part of the induction ceremony as well. The induction announcement for Colon will be made during Smackdown this Friday.
March 13, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
Since management wanted to test out the developmental wrestlers to see if they were ready to be called up to the main roster, the Ascension, a tag team consisting of Conor OBrian and Rick Victor, were given a match against Diego and Fernando at the big live event in New York City this weekend. WWE even paired Vickie Guerrero up with them. Unfortunately, though, the crowd was silent and indifferent towards the duo, thus hurting their chances of being promoted.
March 9, 2014
El Torito
Many within WWE have already chalked up the El Torito gimmick as a bust. Management were hoping that he could help elevate Diego and Fernando, but the audience has simply not connected with the trio. Torito will be kept around, though, as his contract is reasonably priced and kids at live events seem to enjoy his presence.
February 19, 2014
Antonio Cesaro

It looks like Antonio Cesaro might be in the doghouse with WWE, as the former ROH star was recently booked in a surprising loss during a singles match against Fernando, a performer that is rarely featured on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown.

January 13, 2014
Fernando
Los Matadores defeated Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro at Hell in a Cell after the masked duo hit their tag team finisher on Swagger.
