Since he has long been known as one of the most difficult personalities to deal with in the industry, the belief was that it was very likely that Jim Cornette would ever work for a major professional wrestling promotion again. However, that is exactly what he is going to be doing. Cornette revealed on his podcast show that he will be working with Jeff Jarrett on June 12, 2015 and the following day when GFW does live events in Tennessee.

While Jeff Jarrett already had enough credibility and support in the industry, his pursuit of Eric Bischoff is going to increase the value of GFW. Together, they will be able to attract more of the top free agents to join their roster. Rumors were already floating around that guys like AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian were already interested, but the addition of Bischoff might make them more inclined to sign a contract with a new company.

From the very moment that GFW was announced, various names in the industry have been attached to rumors about possibly joining the new promotion. One name that was off the radar has actually become the biggest name to join. Eric Bischoff and Jeff Jarrett revealed that they were finalizing negotiations, so that the former will be able to help the latter run the company. Considering their combined resumes, this is a major step forward.

Another step forward has been taken by Jeff Jarrett and GFW. An announcement has been officially made about an upcoming tour this summer.

The company is expected to announce some recognizable names for their roster soon.

When Jeff Jarrett and Dixie Carter parted ways, things were a bit complicated for AAA because they had relationships with both sides. The promotion signed a deal with GFW to do a talent exchange. Now, it appears that they are talking to TNA once again. The belief is that Carter is going to send a three man team down to Mexico to compete in the Lucha Libre World Cup Trios Tournament. No word yet on which performers will be sent.

Since there has been no announcement, a lot of fans are under the assumption that Jeff Jarrett is not working on his roster. That is simply not the case. It has now been revealed that GFW has reached out to several of the top independent wrestlers to negotiate deals with them. Some have already signed, but Global Force Wrestling is not ready to make the announcement just yet. They want to build a deeper pool of talent first.

With fans eagerly awaiting every new announcement, Jeff Jarrett has revealed that he has been in negotiations with three different television networks in regards to airing a weekly show for GFW. The former world heavyweight champion is already planning on taping shows in June, so that means that a deal will more than likely be closed by then. Jarrett did not reveal the names of the network, which is customary in the business.

One thing that we now know about GFW is that when they start doing live events, production is an area that they are not skipping out on.

Plus, they have headquarters in several other countries across the globe. Jarrett plans on doing his first show on July 24.

According to the legendary commentator himself, Jim Ross has been presented with some sort of opportunity. It does involve professional wrestling, and it will enable him to be back on television. The WWE legend stated that it was too soon in the process for him to reveal any further details. Ross has long been rumored to join Jeff Jarrett in GFW, especially since the two of them worked together on that New Japan pay per view in January.

While he has been given a really solid push over the last year, there is still a chance that Jay Lethal could opt to leave for GFW when the opportunity arises. He maintains a good business relationship with Jeff Jarrett, who may end up receiving a better television deal for his promotion than the one that Ring of Honor has. It is being said that Lethal would love to perform for a much bigger audience. ROH still is not shown in every state.
