There is a lot of things that can be said about Jeff Jarrett, but no one can deny that the guy is ambitious and works hard towards his goal. The TNA founder has already started working the phones to book talent for a big GFW show in Las Vegas. The vent is taking place in August, so the former world heavyweight champion should have very little problems being able to put together a great card. Lots of big name free agents available.

Back in February, it was confirmed that GFW would be based in Las Vegas. Now, it looks like Jeff Jarrett has finalized the deal because he has started to do official promotion for it. While not a lot of details have been released, Jarrett has informed us that it will definitely be taking place this summer. No confirmation yet on a television deal, but the belief is that Global Force Wrestling can help further the cause by doing live events at least.

A lot of names have been speculated as being potential members of GFW when they start doing television shows. Jim Ross has had his name attached for quite some time now because he's the hottest free agent commentator in the business. The speculations about him being in negotiations with Jeff Jarrett have finally been confirmed by Ross himself. In his latest blog, he reveals that he has been talking to Jarrett about signing a contract.

Since he is having a bit of a hard time trying to secure a television contract with one of the national networks, Jeff Jarrett is said to be pitching the idea of doing a test run. GFW would run a super show that would feature talent from AAA, New Japan, the independent wrestling circuit in the US and international stars from the many business deals that he has set up overseas. Thus far, none of the networks have expressed interest in that.

Some big news is expected to come out of Jeff Jarrett soon, and the belief is that he will announce a television taping for GFW soon. There are already talks that the first show could be done in late May or early June. At the very latest, they will take place in July. The speculation here is that Jarrett is coming close to signing a television contract with an unnamed network. He has met with several companies to gauge interest in his product.

While he would never publicly acknowledge his interest until he is contractually able to do so, the belief is that Mike Tenay would be very interested in joining Jeff Jarrett in GFW. The promotion still needs a lead commentator for when they start doing televised events. Some are under the belief that Tenay is not completely happy in TNA because he is now a producer instead of a commentator. Tenay was replaced by Josh Mathews this year.

Since they have worked together for years and have maintained a positive relationship outside the ring, the speculation is that Kevin Nash and Jeff Jarrett will be working together in some sort of capacity when GFW starts doing live events. However, that is very unlikely to happen. While it is true that Nash has constantly stated that he puts business first, the belief here is that he will remain loyal to Triple H and WWE, the company inducting him this year.

Since he was the man that helped to popularize the X division in TNA, Jeff Jarrett is a big fan of the fast paced and high impact style of wrestling. He believes that it should definitely be a part of his shows. That is why Evan Bourne is said to be on his radar. Jarrett feels that the former WWE star can use high flying style of wrestling and help generate immediately excitement for GFW. Jarrett has been looking around for talent to sign.

A name that Jeff Jarrett would love to have attached to GFW is none other than Jerry Lawler. The two of them have a very long history together. They worked with one another in the Memphis territory decades ago. Lawler would bring instant credibility to the promotion if he were one of the voices at the commenting table. Jarrett will more than likely contact Lawler, but it is highly unlikely that a contract will be offered at this point.
March 3, 2015
Since TNA started signing contracts with wrestlers again, it seems a bit surprising that there have not been a lot of news in regards to the company contacting Chris Sabin. It is being said that the former world heavyweight champion is not interested in making a return at this point because he wants to wait and see what Jeff Jarrett does with GFW. The belief is that a lot of free agents are doing the same thing as well.
