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.

Since he happens to be the most popular professional wrestling commentator of all time, Jim Ross is a candidate for every opening in any promotion across the world. House of Hardcore is no exception. You can expect Tommy Dreamer to place a call to Ross now that he has a television deal that will enable his promotion to be seen in several countries across the globe. Earlier in the week, Ross stated that he had an interesting deal on the table.

A lot of the older wrestlers on the independent wrestling circuit like to tell fans that they are returning to WWE soon. Apparently, the Great Khali is one of those guys. He has been telling the mainstream media in India that he is returning to the promotion soon. However, representatives from the company are reportedly denying those rumors. They stated that they have no plans to bring the former world heavyweight champion back into the mix.

The rumors have proven to be true. Paragon Pro Wrestling has officially announced that they are going to be on national television starting in June of this year. The promotion claims that they will be available in more homes than any other wrestling company. The belief is that they will now pursue some big name wrestlers to help sell the product. Joey Ryan and Gangrel are the two well known guys that currently work there regularly.

ROH is about to lose their standing as the third top promotion in the United States. A company called Paragon Pro Wrestling is finalizing a deal with Pop TV that will give them national exposure. Ring of Honor, on the other hand, has yet to reach all fifty states, despite being in business for as long as TNA has. Former WWE announcer Matt Striker is rumored to be the producer and director for the promotion. Lisa Marie Varon could be the featured star.

A big obstacle for WWE in getting Ronda Rousey into the wrestling ring is the fact that Dana White and UFC will not clear her to perform. Some are noting that the promotion has done so for other fighters in the past, including the one where they allowed Josh Barnett to work a professional wrestling match in Japan last year. However, they are failing to take into considerations that Ronda is currently one of their biggest draws right now.

While she may eventually do so in the future, as of right now, Brittany is not planning on making a return to TNA anytime soon. She is doing rather well on the independent wrestling circuit. The woman known as Santana Garrett was recently given the NWA version of the women's championship. She also holds titles in other promotions. Building up her name value and credentials on the indies is the best thing for her career at this moment.

You can rule out at least one potential second generation wrestler joining WWE. Goldberg told TMZ during an interview that he would never allow his son to work for the company. He stated that he purchase a wrestling promotion and have his son work there than to ever allow him to work in a company ran by Vince McMahon and Triple H. Irregardless, though, it appears that the 8 year old boy is leaning more towards an MMA career.

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 the move has been well received by the front office, the wrestlers backstage and TNA fans, there hasn't been a lot of buzz about Drew Galloway making his return to the mainstream professional wrestling scene in the United States. Management was hoping that his presence would draw in some WWE fans to Impact Wrestling, but that does not appears to be the case. Galloway is still quite the asset to the promotion, however.
