In a press release, Jeff Jarrett revealed that GFW will be helping to promote the final movie that Roddy Piper ever starred in. The film is called The Masked Saint, and it will be released in theaters next January. Prior to his death from a heart attack, Piper had agreed to work for Global Force Wrestling as an ambassador. That would have helped draw in fans to the promotion.

Prior to his death, Roddy Piper had apparently reached a deal with GFW to start working for the promotion. The plan was for him to do a Piper's Pit segment at one of the television taping to help the company pitch to the various television networks. Unfortunately, though, the agreement could not come to fruition. Piper had been released from his contract with WWE not too long ago.
