To take things up a notch, TNA has announced that they are creating a King of the Mountain Championship for the person that wins the match on Sunday. There are talks that Jeff Jarrett could be given the victory and the belt so that he can make it an inter promotional championship that will be defended on Impact Wrestling and at GFW live events.

Initially, Booker T had planned on running a professional wrestling camp for industry hopefuls on May 31, 2015 since his service was not needed by WWE at a live event. When management made the last minute decision to change that show into the Elimination Chamber pay per view, it caused a scheduling conflict for the former world heavyweight champion. Booker had no choice but to postpone his camp for a later date.

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. The reason is because he might be able to convince a network to give him a chance if he can prove that his product can generate interest and draw in the fans. A solid result from the tour could also generate a decent amount of revenue for Global Force Wrestling.

While doing a podcast interview with Steve Austin, Dixie Carter revealed that she has been involved with professional wrestling for much longer than people realized.

She even helped Jerry Lawler book a USWA live event.

Since he has long been known as one of the most difficult personalities to deal with in the industry, the belief was that it was very likely that Jim Cornette would ever work for a major professional wrestling promotion again. However, that is exactly what he is going to be doing. Cornette revealed on his podcast show that he will be working with Jeff Jarrett on June 12, 2015 and the following day when GFW does live events in Tennessee.

The NXT live event last night started at 10pm local time. In order to save money on union costs, Vince McMahon needed his company to be out of the building by midnight. However, the WWE CEO was having so much fan and felt the electricity in the audience, he decided that it was a cost he was willing to pay. The show went on for another hour, which bodes well for wrestling fans that want to see Triple H gain more power backstage.

Back in February, it was confirmed that GFW would be based in Las Vegas. Now, it looks like Jeff Jarrett has finalized the deal because he has started to do official promotion for it. While not a lot of details have been released, Jarrett has informed us that it will definitely be taking place this summer. No confirmation yet on a television deal, but the belief is that Global Force Wrestling can help further the cause by doing live events at least.

While they have managed to confuse some within the internet wrestling community, WWE still has every intention of doing a complete face turn for Randy Orton in the coming weeks. They have been testing out the audience at live events by having the former world heavyweight champion working against Bray Wyatt, a heel that does not have an opponent to practice with since he is currently involved in a Wrestlemania feud with the Undertaker.
