At the Lucha Libre World Cup, TNA and Lucha Underground formed a partnership. John Morrison teamed up with Mr Anderson and Matt Hardy, all of whom were former WWE stars, during the trios tournament. Initially, the belief was that Anderson and Hardy would be teaming up with Drew Galloway since they all worked for the same company, but Galloway ended up being on the international team with El Mesias and Angelico instead.

It appears that GFW is very serious about portraying female wrestlers in a positive light. They already have Rosita and LeiD Tapa under contract. A name that has been tossed around by the front office is Sarita. She is a talented performer with a great body. The professional bodybuilder is also well known around the world. Adding someone with an international pedigree would be like giving the women's division a shot of steroids.

When GFW first announced members of their new roster, they picked up two of the best tag teams from New Japan. The division just got even better as the company has managed to sign one of the hottest acts in professional wrestling. The Young Bucks will play a key part of Global Force Wrestling. The excitement that they bring can help draw in the fans. Nick Jackson and Matt Jackson will continue to work independently and internationally as well.

Some further details have been revealed about how GFW will be structured when they start doing television taping. Jeff Jarrett will be crowing four new champions during the first season. There should almost definitely be a world heavyweight championship. Tag team titles and a belt for the female performers are also very likely. As for the last one, it could end up being a North American championship to give it an international feel.

Since her partnership with the Great Muta and Wrestle 1 has ended, Dixie Carter wants to build upon another international business relationship. It is being said that a big part of the reason why TNA is sending Mr Anderson, Drew Galloway and Matt Hardy down to Mexico for the Lucha Libre World Cup is because the company wants to expand on their talent exchange program with AAA. They want to bring in several more Mexican stars to the US.

The last time we saw Stephanie McMahon on WWE TV was the episode of Monday Night Raw that took place the night after Wrestlemania. She had been written off because she was doing a global tour with Eisenhower USA Fellowship, an international leadership exchange program for outstanding professionals. That is part of her job as a Brand Ambassador for the company. She will be making her return this week on Raw.

Getting one of the top tag teams in New Japan was not enough for Jeff Jarrett. He went out and signed another one. Lance Hoyt and Davey Boy Smith Jr have both signed a contract with GFW. They will be a regular part of the roster, while also continuing to do tours of Japan. That way, they can maintain their international name value. While the two of them did not find a lot of success in WWE, they have established themselves as stars overseas.

Earlier today, Jeff Jarrett revealed a couple of names that will be joining GFW. He managed to sign one of the most popular international acts in the Bullet Club. Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows are going to be a regular part of the roster. They are former IWGP tag team champions in New Japan. In the story line, Jarrett is actually a stablemate of Anderson and Gallows, so it will be interesting to see if that plays out in Global Force Wrestling.

Back when it was announced that the WWE Network was going to start being aired internationally, some in the internet wrestling community were absolutely certain that the company would rope in millions of subscribers. Vince McMahon was a bit more realistic, especially since he based his opinions on numbers and statistics. He announced earlier today that they have picked up a little less than 200,000 foreign subscribers. Numbers won't be much higher.
