Jeff and Karen Jarrett sent out the following press release today announcing the formation of their new Global Force Wrestling promotion:


NASHVILLE — After weeks of speculation and unprecedented internet buzz surrounding the hashtag #ItsComing … IT IS HERE!

Legendary performer and third-generation promoter Jeff Jarrett and his wife, Karen, are set to unveil Global Force Wrestling (, which promises to be the most fan-interactive and immersive wrestling experience in history.

“Because of new media, new technology and more ‘in-tune’ fans than we’ve ever had, wrestling is poised for another boom like it experienced in the mid-1980s and late 1990s,” Jeff Jarrett said. “What we’re going to deliver is a multi-platform, innovative brand that will engage fans in ways they’ve never experienced. It will provide a fresh perspective inside the business that fans have been clamoring for.”

Jarrett, the founder of TNA wrestling and a 12-time world champion who wrestled in WWE, WCW and numerous international promotions, and his wife, Karen, have been laying the foundation for GFW since January 2014.

“Jeff was born into this business,” Karen Jarrett said. “It’s his life’s passion. He saw a unique opportunity to fill a need in professional wrestling, and he has tirelessly devoted himself physically, mentally and emotionally to doing just that.”

Videos of the Jarretts previewing the new promotion attached to the hashtag #ItsComing have garnered more than a million views. Meanwhile, Jeff and Karen have been searching the United States and the international ranks in search of undiscovered talent. The response has been overwhelming, with more than 400 performers from across the globe already in the evolving GFW talent database.

“The reality is we want to build a brand in which fans are watching our wrestlers evolve from day one and are truly invested in the lives of our talent in and out of the ring,” Jarrett said.

Global Force Wrestling expects to make several more key announcements in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

      Global Force Wrestling? Terrible name.

      • Mojo Jojo

        .. The logo isn’t the prettiest, either!


          sounds like a kids tv show.

        • bluebook

          True. Looks like a cheesy logo from the 90’s.

          They’ve been laying the foundation since January 2014!!! That was ages ago! Tells you how much thought they’ve put into this.

          Seriously, why even mention it?

    • George Flegel

      Not the greatest name, but I hope it works. Jeff Jarrett has given so much to wrestling and I would love to see him succeed so he can stick to both of his former bosses Vince McMahon and Dixie Carter.

    • hmw

      who cares

    • Kris Godwin

      Cool. More competition is all the better!

    • TheNoMovementLegend

      George… Former Bosses??. yup with vince but he founded TNA

    • Undertaker316

      should of named it world wide wrestling entertainment (wwwe) just to piss off vince :D

      • bluebook

        It won’t piss him off so much as it will give WWE lawyers something “fun” to do. Squash a small business/competition before it even draws its first breath.

        • Undertaker316

          unless wwe got the rights to the name wwwe they cant do anything about it

          • bluebook

            They absolutely could if they can prove the similar names hurts the WWE. That would be an easy case to make because they are both wrestling companies and WWE lawyers could argue it confuses people. It is why WWE had to change the name from WWF to WWE when the world wild life fund sued, and those were just for the initials.
