On October 12, 2015, New Japan is doing their annual King of Pro Wrestling pay per view, and they have enlisted the aid of Matt Striker to do English commentary. Management has been putting more effort into reaching a potentially huge fan base in the United States. They tried that recently with their partnership with Jeff Jarrett and Jim Ross. The belief is that the heavily underrated Striker was chosen over Ross because his rate is not nearly as high.

There was some confusion within the internet wrestling community earlier today. Some thought that Dixie Carter was taking a jab at Jeff Jarrett through social media by saying that TNA is much better off without Jarrett. Some thought she was alluding to the fact that Jarrett sold his remaining shares in real life. Carter was actually referring to the invasion story line with GFW.

In a rather interesting development, it has now been revealed that Jeff Jarrett has sold his remaining shares of TNA. He no longer is a minority owner in the promotion. The agreement was part of the deal that he made with Dixie Carter when she agreed to do an invasion story line with GFW. Now, the Carter family can do whatever deals they want without having to worry about needing permission from Jarrett.

Since he has done it before, Jeff Jarrett knows what it takes to build up a business. You go for one victory at a time. GFW just scored their first victory. The promotion now has a television deal in England. Fans in that country will now be able to watch Amped thanks to a new deal between Global Force Wrestling and Boulder Creek International. Doing well overseas will help Jarrett leverage the networks in the United States.

In what might be quite the surprise to many, it is being said that Jeff Jarrett is much closer to getting a television deal for GFW in England than he is in the United States. Advertisers in America are not particular fond of professional wrestling, but the demographics in the United Kingdom are a bit different. Securing a television deal overseas and doing strong numbers would help Global Force Wrestling get a deal in the USA.

A big fuss was made by the internet wrestling community this week when it was discovered that GFW was canceling some upcoming shows in Texas. Word has now been released that the reason why the promotion canceled those events is because Jeff Jarrett needed to head over to England to negotiation potential television deals in that market. He does not want these shows to run without him being there to manage.

During a recent podcast interview with Steve Austin, Chael Sonnen revealed some rather interesting things about Jeff Jarrett and his ownership stake in TNA, which a lot of fans assume has been vanquished completely. Sonnen stated that Jarrett still owns more than 11% of the company. It is a sizable amount but not enough to where he can go in and control the board of directors or anything.

When GFW heads over to England in October to do a couple of live events, Jeff Jarrett is going to be quite busy. He will be spending most of his time promoting the show and running the event. In his spare time, he will also be taking some meetings to see if he can get an international television deal in the United Kingdom. Jarrett is also still working on a domestic television deal in the United States.

Back in May, Chris Hero was backstage at Impact Wrestling and reports stated that he talked a bit with management about a possible contract. Well, it looks like that deal is not going to be happening anytime soon because TNA is showing very little interest in the move. Hero might have a shot with GFW if he can convince Jeff Jarrett that he is still an asset in this industry after a disastrous run in WWE.

As many of you already know, Jeff Jarrett has been building up working relationships with wrestling promotions from around the world. His latest partnership might come in the form of OMEGA, the promotion that is owned and operated by Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy. Jarrett allowed two of their performers to work a championship match at a GFW live event.
