There is also a chance that he may look in other cities if he is unable to find a suitable spot in the three big cities, but the belief is that he is leaning towards those markets because it will be a bit easier to fill the arenas.

August 18, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
When Bound For Glory 2014 was announced, there were some concerns because New Japan was doing a show at the same venue on the same day as well.

There are some speculations that Jeff Jarrett, who was recently in Japan, might have had something to do with it.
August 16, 2014
AJ Styles
An interesting story line took place in New Japan this week. After AJ Styles lost to Hiroshi Tanahashi, the Bullet Club proceeded to attack Tanahashi.

July 24, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
While there has been some pessimism on Global Force Wrestling being able to secure a television deal due to the decline of WWE lately, Jeff Jarrett is reportedly in negotiations with two cable companies right now. It is being said that one of the networks has never carried professional wrestling before, so it is pretty impressive that Jarrett was able to convince them to give it a try.
July 16, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Now that Jeff Jarrett has revealed that a new announcement for Global Force Wrestling is coming soon, speculations have arisen that it will be about a potential television deal that the TNA founder has been working on.

July 11, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
When news initially broke out that Jeff Jarrett was starting a new wrestling promotion, all fingers pointed to Toby Keith as his financial backer.

June 29, 2014
Jeff Hardy
Earlier this week, Jeff Hardy and Jeff Jarrett went on a vacation together with their families in tow.

June 23, 2014
Jeff Jarrett

June 21, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Over the last several months, Jeff Jarrett has been pursuing a television deal for his new promotion. While there was some interest in Global Force Wrestling by the networks, it appears that things have slowed down tremendously for Jarrett because of the issues going on in WWE. News about their stocks declining hit the mainstream media, so a lot of industries are leery of professional wrestling at the moment.
June 14, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
WWE released quite a bit of performers from their payroll today, but it looks like some of them could have a new job lined up pretty soon. Through Twitter, Jeff Jarrett revealed that he was paying close attention to the performers that WWE is letting go. He noted that the free agent depth in professional wrestling has gotten a lot deeper, which means that he will attempt to sign some of them to Global Force Wrestling.
June 12, 2014
Sting
Thus far, the TNA Hall of Fame consists of Sting and Kurt Angle, two of the more prolific performers in the history of the industry. A third member is set to join them.

June 11, 2014
Dixie Carter

May 30, 2014
Mick Foley
In the next few days, Mick Foley is going to have a huge announcement for professional wrestling fans. The former WWE star stated that it will be a decision that not all fans agree with.

However, there are those backstage that believe that the announcement might not even have anything to do with wrestling.
May 19, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
When Jeff Jarrett chose the name Global Force Wrestling for his new promotion, it was done with the intention of letting the world know that he wanted performers from all corners of the globe.

May 14, 2014
Christopher Daniels
"I figure that anything that Jeff Jarrett puts his mind to when it comes to creating a promotion has the potential to be very formidable in terms of the landscape of pro wrestling. Just look what he did with TNA. If he has the right people behind him when it comes to finances, then Jeff is creative enough to make something happen. So it's definitely on my radar, just like I think it's on everyone's radar at this point. Everyone's just waiting to see exactly what Global Force Wrestling is going to be. We have to see where it is, what it is, and who is going to be involved. Jeff is starting to answer slowly but surely." - Christopher Daniels discusses the possibility of joining GFW
May 14, 2014
Bray Wyatt
In a move that might be taking place much too soon, WWE has decided to split up the Wyatt Family. Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan will all be going their separate ways. Wyatt is rumored to be doing a baby face turn soon since management ran out of top level opponents for him. Harper is expected to receive a nice push as a singles performer, while nothing much has been said about plans for Rowan.
October 1, 2014
Randy Orton
In order to create new matches in the main event scene, WWE is contemplating a baby face turn for Randy Orton in the near future. Seeds have been planted on Monday Night Raw recently when his character is shown complaining frequently about being forced to put out fires created by Seth Rollins. The belief is that a feud between the two will be taking place very soon.
September 30, 2014
Bray Wyatt
On Monday Night Raw this week, WWE aired a video, featuring Luke Harper and Bray Wyatt. Reports have surfaced that the move was done because management wanted to give Harper a singles push. There are also talks that the company is considering a complete split for the Wyatt Family. No word yet on what they plan on doing with Wyatt and Erick Rowan.
September 30, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While WWE is still trying to finalize plans for Hell in a Cell 2014, one thing is certain. Seth Rollins is going to be working a match inside of the huge steel structure. His opponent will either be John Cena or Dean Ambrose. Management has not yet made a decision on that, but the belief is that Cena has the advantage because he has been more of a proven draw over the years, and the pay per view desperately needs that drawing power since Brock Lesnar and the WWE title are not going to be present.
September 30, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
Reports have surfaced that Prince Devitt and Kenta Kobayashi are going to be promoted to the main roster very soon. The two of them are established international stars, and management is not going to have them languishing in the developmental program. WWE knows that the promotion might upset some of the guys that have been in WWE NXT for a while, but it is a move that they want to do.
September 30, 2014
Brie Bella
Some crazy rumors are floating around right now about Nikki Bella and Brie Bella competing in a Hell in a Cell match at Hell in a Cell 2014. WWE is extremely unlikely to do this because they do want their female performers in gimmick matches that might cause severe injury, but the rumors have some merit because it was revealed by an insider who has accurately broken the news on a couple of things in the past.
September 29, 2014
Big Show
Considering how far down the ladder he has been dropped, it's easy to understand why there are a lot of rumors about possible backstage heat on Bray Wyatt. Speculations were high over the weekend because Wyatt lost cleanly in a match against Big Show, a performer that is not being pushed. A possible explanation for the loss is that WWE usually allows the baby faces to win at live events, in order to appease the audience.
September 28, 2014
Homicide
When TNA originally brought Homicide back into the mix, it was designed as something temporary. However, the veteran performer did such a good job at getting a reaction from the audience that management had no choice but to keep him around a bit longer. They changed up the stories a bit for him, and he ended up being given an X division title match against Samoa Joe.
September 26, 2014
Steve Austin
Some heavy speculations have arisen this week on the possible return of Steve Austin to WWE. Reports have surfaced that management has informed manufacturers to go heavy on products related to Stone Cold and informed distributors to prepare for a boost in merchandise coming through. No word yet on what Austin will be doing when he comes back, but there is a chance that it could just be a brief appearance.
September 26, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
Some major trouble is reportedly brewing behind the scenes in WWE, as a new power struggle has just been revealed. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are trying to take some power away from George Barrios and Michelle Wilson, two high ranking executives within the corporation. HHH and Stephanie are using the early failures of the WWE Network against Barrios and Wilson.
September 25, 2014
Vince McMahon
Vince McMahon reportedly has a rule about the cast of Total Divas. None of them are allowed to hold the championship while they are a part of that reality show. No word yet on why McMahon has that rule in place right now, but it is quite peculiar since WWE basically scripts a lot of their segments based on what is happening on Total Divas.
September 25, 2014
AJ Styles
While he has some resentment towards the company for letting him away, the door has not yet been completely closed on AJ Styles making a return to TNA next year. He enjoys working in Japan but would much rather be closer to his family at all times. Once Impact Wrestling secures a new home and the company can afford to hand out big contracts again, Styles could be one of the names brought back.
September 25, 2014
Vince McMahon
The latest episode of Monday Night Raw was a prime example of just how hectic things are backstage in WWE. About an hour and a half before the show was to be aired live to a nationwide audience, Vince McMahon decided to scrap the entire show and write it all over again from scratch. That caused quite a frenzy because the writers were barely given enough time to finish the scripts for the wrestlers.
September 25, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Reports have surfaced that Brock Lesnar is not scheduled to work Hell in a Cell 2014. The WWE champion has caused quite a headache for the front office. Management has to be selective about when they use him because they have to pay him accordingly. The creative department has a dilemma because they know that they cannot keep having Lesnar wrestle John Cena, and there's not a lot of performers on the roster that has enough name value to work with Lesnar.
September 25, 2014
Josh Mathews
Rumors spread rather quickly this week about Josh Mathews joining TNA when pictures of the announcer leaving the company headquarters appeared online. While no official confirmation has been made on the signing, the belief is that a contract has already been reached. While there is still a slight chance that he might be wrestling for the company, the widespread belief is that he is coming in as an announcer.
September 25, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors surfaced this week that Dixie Carter was going to make an announcement about the new network that Impact Wrestling would be moving to. However, at the last minute, Country Music Television has emerged as a strong candidate to land the weekly TNA show. The network is under the same corporate umbrella as their current home, Spike. CMT is available in close to 100 million homes.
September 24, 2014
Brock Lesnar
There is some disarray backstage in WWE right now as to what to do with the main event of Hell in a Cell 2014. Some think that John Cena and Brock Lesnar should have a title rematch in the gigantic steel structure. However, there are enough people who are opposed to the idea that management had to scrap all plans involving Lesnar and Paul Heyman on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw.
September 24, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
It appears that WWE might be done with the feud between Miz and Dolph Ziggler, two performers who were largely neglected by the creative department for a good period of time. Management wants to move Ziggler onto another challenge, and the name being tossed around the most is Antonio Cesaro. WWE is still high on Cesaro, even though he has not received a consistent push as of late.
September 23, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors are heating up that TNA will be making their long awaited announcement on a new television contract. Dixie Carter has been adamant all along about Impact Wrestling being able to remain on the air, and it looks like her team is about to finalize things. No word yet on which network the deal will be with, but it appears that Spike is not in the picture. WGN and Velocity are two of the rumored networks interested in bringing wrestling on board.
September 23, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Since Night of Champions 2014 took place over the weekend, a lot of fans were expecting Paul Heyman to make an appearance and gloat about how Brock Lesnar is still the WWE champion. However, Heyman was nowhere to be seen on Monday Night Raw. He was backstage at the event last night, but management opted against using him because they could not come up with something for Heyman and Lesnar.
September 23, 2014
