That is the reason why Jeff Jarrett was forced to release his good friend Scott Hall from the GFW roster. The former Intercontinental Champion will no longer be going on the summer tour because he was escorted out of a wrestling event for being drunk. Hall was sober for quite some time, but he had a relapse.

For much of the past year, Jeff Jarrett has focused on acquiring a television contract for GFW. However, it is being said that he put a lot of effort into the live event side of the business.

A solid result from the tour could also generate a decent amount of revenue for Global Force Wrestling.
