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.

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.

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.

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.
