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.

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.

When it comes to being booked on the independent wrestling circuit, Jeff Jarrett has the best of both worlds. Not only does he get to perform for fans and be paid rather handsomely for it, he also gets the opportunity to recruit wrestlers to join GFW. In May, he is working a show in California that will also feature Carlito. The two of them are expected to have a little discussion about doing business together later on this year.

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.

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.

Based on the tone of his voice while answering the question during an interview, it seems highly unlikely that we are going to be seeing a business partnership between Jeff Jarrett and Lucha Underground despite his strong relationship with AAA. He reiterated that while the company is owned by the same family, there are different partners and managers involved in each of those two promotions. His relationship is with the one in Mexico.

During a recent interview, Jeff Jarrett admitted that he had been scouting Kevin Steen as a potential member of his GFW roster before the former ROH heavyweight champion decided to take his services to NXT. Jarrett spoke highly of the man now known as Kevin Owens, and many are under the belief that he is doing that because he wants to keep the business relationship open, in case things do not work out for Owens in WWE for whatever reasons.
