Back in August, rumors surfaced that Shawn Daivari was going to be headed to GFW. The only thing holding him back at the time was that he needed to see what the future of Lucha Underground had in store. Now that the promotion is staying in business, Daivari will not be joining Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling. Daivari has a contract that prevents him from appearing on television for another promotion.

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.

While the odds of it happening are seemingly really thin, rumors have it that Jeff Jarrett is continuing to hold on to hope that he can get Rey Mysterio to make an appearance for GFW when they start filming for television.

In addition to what he brings as a talker who is passionate about professional wrestling, one of the biggest reasons why GFW brought in Chael Sonnen as an announcer is because they are hoping that his name value from his UFC career would be an asset in their negotiations with a network. Jeff Jarrett has meticulously carved out a plan so that his Global Force Wrestling could get a television contract for the weekly taping that he is planning.
