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.

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.

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.

A name that has not been spoken much lately has joined the long list of potential roster members for GFW. Word going around is that Sabu is interested in joining the promotion when it starts doing live events. He is still actively working on the independent wrestling circuit, both here in the United States and overseas. The former ECW star would love to be back in the spotlight, and he has maintained a good relationship with Jeff Jarrett.

While an extremely motivated Jeff Jarrett continues to work on getting a television deal for his new promotion, there have been a ton of speculations as to the details of GFW. Rumors surfaced recently that the voice of the promotion will be a very familiar one to longtime wrestling fans. It is being said that Jarrett is hoping to bring together Jim Ross and Mike Tenay as his broadcasting team. He tried teaming them up for New Japan in January.

There are a lot of speculations in the air now that Jeff Jarrett has met with the owners of OVW. The belief is that a deal will be signed and the promotion will become one of the many that will work under the GFW banner. They would join the likes of New Japan, AAA and others in their collective venture. There are talks that Jarrett might use Ohio Valley Wrestling as a developmental territory like WWE once did a few years back.

Ever since their first pay per view in January, fans have been clamoring for news on the progress of GFW. Jeff Jarrett had been pretty quiet because he was busy wrapping up the post promotional work for the event. During a recently released video, Jarrett did provide another exciting details for the fans that have been waiting for another promotion to come shake up the industry. Global Force Wrestling has been confirmed to be based in Las Vegas.

Speculations earlier this week had the Bullet Club coming to the United States and working with Jeff Jarrett in his new GFW promotion. The belief is that New Japan is perfectly fine with this for several reasons. For starters, the performers usually take time off and head back home anyways, so it would not change too much for them. Plus, NJPW wants more of a presence in the US, and they believe that Jarrett can help them do that through the stable.

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.

Since we have not seen a GFW announcement recently, there are many fans who are under the assumption that Jeff Jarrett is struggling to launch his new promotion. That does not appear to be the case. Even thought the pay per view took place on January 4, Jarrett has been busy finishing up the post show promotional work. He is now expected to focus again on finding a television contract and securing some talent for his roster.
