As soon as word spread that Mickie James was making a big announcement on Impact Wrestling later on this week, rumors started to spread that the popular Knockout was going to be announcing her retirement. That is definitely a possibility as she is now a mother. However, TNA could be pulling a swerve by having her announce something entirely different. It could end up being something as simple as Mickie signing a new contract.

Another step forward has been taken by Jeff Jarrett and GFW. An announcement has been officially made about an upcoming tour this summer. The promotion will hold shows at various minor league sports stadiums across the country. Jarrett has already secured several dates for Global Force Wrestling, and he is still negotiating more shows as well. The company is expected to announce some recognizable names for their roster soon.

Since there has been no announcement, a lot of fans are under the assumption that Jeff Jarrett is not working on his roster. That is simply not the case. It has now been revealed that GFW has reached out to several of the top independent wrestlers to negotiate deals with them. Some have already signed, but Global Force Wrestling is not ready to make the announcement just yet. They want to build a deeper pool of talent first.

After the shock of her retirement announcement wore down a bit, the internet wrestling community then began to speculate about the reason why AJ Lee was leaving her dream job in WWE so soon.

Since he has proven himself to be one of the best promoters in professional wrestling, there is a lot of faith in Tommy Dreamer and his abilities.

With his track record, it would not come as a shock to anyone if he were able to secure a television deal for his events.

While he is highly unlikely to ever be back with the company, Jeff Jarrett is going to be in northern Caliornia when Wrestlemania takes place. After all, that is the center of the wrestling universe. Rumors have surfaced that he is saving his big announcement about GFW until that weekend. Since there hasn't been a lot of news about his negotiations to get a television show, Jarrett will most likely reveal news on the roster and live events.

A lot of rumors have been swirling around GFW since their first announcement. You can rule out the one about Vince Russo joining the company as the lead writer. During a recent interview, Jeff Jarrett flat out stated that he would not hire Russo at this point in time. The belief is that Jarrett does not want the negative connotation that surrounds Russo to affect the chance of Global Force Wrestling being accepted by the fans from the start.
