Default Global Force Wrestling - The TNA Re-Brand

  • After spending a couple months as the storyline Vice President of Talent Relations, Kurt Angle announced that he would be stepping down when his contract expired in September. He also announced that per the TNA Bound of Directors, he would be naming a replacement before he leaves.
  • The speculation soon began to run wild. Would Dixie finally get complete control again? Would MVP gain his power back? Would someone new be coming in? The deadline came and when it was time for Kurt Angle to announce his replacement, out of the entrance tunnel stepped the TNA founder and King of the Mountain Jeff Jarrett!
  • The wrestling world was in shock. It had been thought that Jeff Jarrett was about to start another wrestling company along with friends Hermie Sadler and Toby Keith but he returned to TNA instead. Jeff immediately set about to end the months of power struggles that had plagued TNA by proposing a winner takes all three way match for Bound for Glory where a representative from each party (MVP, Dixie Carter, and Jeff Jarrett) would wrestle each other and the winner would earn his party complete control (becoming TNA President).
  • MVP signed on immediately but Dixie Carter was obviously a little uneasy. Assured by her nephew Ethan Carter III that they could not lose, she eventually signed on, naming EC3 as he representative. Many people thought Jeff Jarrett would put himself in the match but instead, he named Bobby Roode his representative, promising him revenge on MVP.
  • The match was now set. The Carters and MVP threw everything they could at Bobby Roode but with the help of the shocking return of A.J. Styles, Bobby Roode won the match.
  • With the Presidency of TNA now once again in his hands, Jeff Jarrett set about announcing major changes. With the success of Bound for Glory 2014 in Tokyo as well as the continued success of TNA’s overseas tours, under Jeff Jarrett’s watch TNA would be taking on a more global approach. The first major change Jeff announced was to re-brand TNA as Global Force Wrestling, the rumored name of the company Jeff was going to found before rejoining TNA. However, despite the re-branding, GFW would be retaining the same roster, champions, and storylines from TNA.
  • Also, with the financial backing of country music superstar Toby Keith, Jeff Jarrett announced that GFW had struck a new TV deal with CMT starting in November 2014 to air GFW in the same time slot that they aired on Spike. This meant GFW would be temporarily going off TV as they transitioned to CMT.
  • A new President also means a new backstage leadership structure. President Jeff Jarrett announced that friends Hermie Sadler and Toby Keith would be given the titles of Vice President, although it’s fair to guess that it’s mostly symbolic. He also announced that Tommy Dreamer, who had recently rejoined TNA and had moved up the ranks considerably, would be named the head of creative and talent relations. Al Snow, Devon, and Taz would make up the agents.
  • With this new global approach that GFW would be taking, it was announced that GFW would be filming GFW Television events from the U.K., Mexico, and Japan as well as the US regularly throughout the year. As for events in the US, GFW would no longer be filming a majority of their events from one location; rather they would film a handful of dates at one location and then move on, similar to TNA’s recent New York tapings.
  • All that is now left is to announce a return to TV date. Thursday November 13th 2014, GFW debuts on CMT live from the Manhattan Center in New York City.
Just kind of threw these results together so I had something to go off. I decided to not have a Bound for Glory series.

Awesome. Hope you keep up with this. Hopefully touring internationally will mean some interesting and unique debuts from around the world. Will the partnership with NJPW exist?

GFW News & Notes - Was it all a swerve? PPV in England?, relationships with other companies, & more

- Jeff Jarrett's return to TNA and the subsequent re-branding of it to GFW have a lot of people wondering if Jarrett's intention to found his own wrestling company was indeed legit or not. It is now being reported that Jarrett was indeed in the process of starting GFW as a separate company before he ran into a few snags. This caused him to once again reach out to the Carters and this time they listened. The Carters had grown even more frustrated with TNA in the months since they took the company off the market which forced them to make even more budget cuts, namely not attempting to resign either Kurt Angle or Mr. Anderson. This meant that Jarrett, who was now armed with even more money due to his dealings with investors interested in GFW could now make a serious offer. He made an offer for complete control and the Carters accepted. Only a few days later he was back on TNA TV as the Vice President of Talent Relations.

- GFW is reportedly attempting to re-work the already scheduled tour of the U.K. in January to accommodate a potential PPV event. No word yet on if/when that will get done.

- As expected, GFW will be looking to work with as many international promotions as they can, to help them not only perpetuate the idea that they are a "global company" but to help with promoting international events as well as talent exchanges when possible. They are already longstanding deals in place with Wrestle-1 in Japan as well as AAA in Mexico.

- Many are wondering how GFW can possibly afford to be touring around the world as much as they plan to. The plan is to tape a few weeks worth of TV at one or two locations and then move on, to minimize the total number of dates. They also hope that relationships with the international companies will allow them to somewhat split the bill when it comes to promotion so they are not spending money where it's not useful. In an attempt to ease any worries talent might have about lost wages, GFW has greatly eased the restrictions about talent appearing for other companies which will hopefully let the talent gain back some of their lost money. GFW will also be greatly reducing their number of house shows.

- GFW plans to remain using the six sided ring going forward, making a few adjustments to make the talent a little more happy.

- Preview for 11/13...A new era begins. GFW TV emanates from the world famous Manhattan Center in NYC for the first time ever. New GFW President Jeff Jarrett will open the show with an address to the crowd...The X Division championship remains vacant due to Austin Aries cashing it in via Option C to earn a shot at the world title. Tonight begins the process of finding a new X Division champion via an old fashioned tournament. Crazzy Steve battles Robbie E. and Sanada battles Tigre Uno in the first matches of Round #1...Rebel of The Menagerie shocked the world at Bound for Glory by overcoming the other Knockouts on the roster to earn herself the Knockouts Championship. How will the other Knockouts on the roster, mainly Angelina Love and Velvet Sky, react to the new champion?...Samuel Shaw finally exercised the demons that were haunting him by defeating Mr. Anderson in a Loser Leaves Town match. Now that he is "all the way healed" Samuel now promises to make it a mission to help others and he's targeted one person in particular but he won't say who...Also, how will the former power brokers of TNA (MVP, EC3, etc.) react now that they have been stripped of any power?...All this and more, including the return of "The Phenomenal" A.J. Styles Thursday November 13th, now on CMT!

Default Re: Global Force Wrestling - The TNA Re-Brand

Manhattan Center
New York City, New York

Tonight’s show begins with a rather long look back at all the events that have transpired over the past month or so. From the extremely successful Bound for Glory from Tokyo, to the shocking announcement that TNA was being rebranded as Global Force Wrestling, to Jeff Jarrett once again becoming President, it was all covered. Then Jeff Jarrett briefly explains his vision for the company, a company that has a reach and an audience not only in the United States but in any country that has a strong interest in professional wrestling. The video finishes up with Jeff thanking the fans for sticking with him and the company and he promises only good times ahead.

Once the opening video finishes, the camera cuts to the ring area where the pyro then goes off and Mike Tenay and Taz welcome everyone watching at home. They mention that not only are they under a new name and management but they are also now being broadcast on CMT after spending several years with Spike. Mike and Taz then give a quick rundown of the scheduled card for tonight, including the two X Division Championship tournament matches. When they are finished, the music of Jeff Jarrett begins to play.

The TNA founder, current GFW President, and King of the Mountain comes out of the entrance tunnel to a huge reaction from the crowd. Jeff pauses at the top of the entrance ramp for almost a minute, taking in all the love from the crowd that he can. Eventually he makes his way down to the ring where he is handed a microphone.

Jeff starts off his speech by welcoming everyone to the inaugural broadcast of Global Force Wrestling, now on CMT! He says these past few months have certainly been a wild ride, especially since he wasn’t 100% sure what he was going to do with his life post TNA. But when the opportunity to take back what he created presented itself, he just couldn’t turn it down. He once again thanks the fans for sticking with not only him but the company as a whole. A lot has changed and he certainly would understand if fans turned away but a lot of them stayed and for that he is eternally grateful. Jeff promises that their patience will be rewarded once his master plan unfolds itself over the next few months. Speaking of grateful, he wouldn’t even be in this position right now if it weren’t for one man, that man being “The It Factor” Bobby Roode.

Bobby Roode’s theme music hits and “The It Factor”, dressed in a very fancy suit, makes his way down the entrance ramp, eventually joining Jeff Jarrett inside the ring.

Jeff extends his hand toward Bobby and the two hug. Jeff then hands the microphone to Bobby who begins to speak. Bobby also thanks the fans for their patience but he thanks Jeff the most for putting as much faith in him as he did, trusting him with the fate of the company that he founded. He’s glad he was able to end the years of ridiculous power struggles that had dragged the company down and give power back to the man who truly deserved it. Since he is giving credit where credit is due, Bobby also wants to thank the man who had his back at Bound for Glory, A.J. Styles.

When A.J. Styles’ music hits the crowd goes nearly as crazy as they did for Jeff Jarrett. A pretty loud “Welcome Back” chant is heard from the crowd as A.J. makes his way down to the ring.

The “Welcome Back” chants continue as A.J. enters the ring. They are so loud that A.J. is unable to speak. Right when he is about to speak, he is interrupted by the theme music of Ethan Carter III. EC3, flanked by Rockstar Spud, already with a microphone in hand, says that he is here to protest the incredible, perhaps even criminal treatment, of his precious Aunt D. Aunt D had control of HER company stolen from her and it’s all A.J.’s fault. A.J. seems taken back by the accusation and responds by saying that the only reason he was out there in the first place was simply to make sure that EC3, MVP, or any of their cronies, didn’t attempt to tamper with the result of the match in any way. EC3 says that regardless, he will make A.J. pay for what he’s done. Not wanting to waste any time, A.J. then challenges EC3 to a match, tonight, saying that now’s the best time to make him pay, if he can. Rockstar Spud attempts to reason with EC3 but he’s having nothing of it. Without hesitating, EC3 accepts A.J.’s challenge and the match between the two is set. A.J.’s music then hits as the two parties stare each down while the camera transitions away.

Before the commercial break, the cameras catch up with Angelina Love and Velvet Sky. The Beautiful People are asked for their thoughts on the inexperienced Rebel winning the Knockouts Championship. Both the Beautiful People say the same thing that they were in shock that she was even able to compete in the match, let alone win. They say they are going to the ring right now to correct this wrong.


Coming back from the commercial, we see both Angelina Love and Velvet Sky standing in the middle of the ring.

The Beautiful People waste no time in calling out the sham of a champion Rebel. Rebel, flanked by her Menagerie friends Knux and The Freak, wastes no time as well coming down to confront them. Initially, Rebel says nothing, instead chooses to listen to what the Beautiful People have to say. Angelina Love says that for Rebel’s own good as well as the good of the entire Knockouts division, Rebel must relinquish the title immediately. Rebel simply laughs off the proposal. Things get a little tenser between the two sides when Velvet Sky takes her turn at demanding Rebel give up the title. To prevent things from getting out of control, Knux steps in and says that there is no way Rebel will give up her title without a fight. Angelina says fine then and tries to sucker punch Rebel but Knux is in the way just enough for Rebel to avoid the punch and fire back with one of her own. The two Knockouts begin brawling and an impromptu match begins.

Match #1: Angelina Love w/ Velvet Sky vs. Rebel w/ Knux & The Freak

It takes a while before the referee is able to get Velvet Sky as well as Knux and The Freak to the outside but when he does, he then calls for the bell. Immediately Rebel is outgunned. She can argue all she wants about not having to give up her title but the fact is she truly is inexperienced and it shows against the veteran Angelina Love. Angelina appears to have everything in the bag when the circus like antics of Knux and The Freak on the outside start providing a distraction. She ignores them at first but little by little she can’t help but stare/laugh at what Knux and The Freak try to do. Velvet screams at her to get her head back in the game but it doesn’t seem to work. The distractions by Knux and The Freak allow Rebel to sneak up behind Angelina, and roll her up long enough to get the 1, 2, 3.

Winner: Rebel

Rebel once again picks up the shocking win against a much more experienced opponent, albeit with a little help from the outside. Following the match, Rebel quickly rolls out of the ring and to the safety of Knux and The Freak while Angelina Love starts to freak out in the middle of the ring.

The camera then transitions away from the ring area to the back where we see Sanada getting himself prepared for his upcoming X Division championship tournament match when James Storm walks in to the room. The two don’t say a word; rather Sanada simply stands up, and follows Storm out the door.


Match #2: Sanada w/ James Storm vs. Tigre Uno – Round 1/X Division Championship Tournament

Coming back from commercial, it is now time for the second match of the night and the first in a new tournament where the winner will be crowned X Division Champion between Sanada and Tigre Uno. Tigre Uno is already in the ring when the cameras come back from commercial. Mike Tenay and Taz hype this match as the first of many international flavored matches that GFW will be bringing you. Soon Tigre Uno’s opponent, Sanada, makes his way down to the ring. Sanada, having defeated his former mentor The Great Muta at Bound for Glory, has now found a new mentor in “The Cowboy” James Storm. What James Storm could possibly want out of Sanada is anybody’s guess but that is the situation at the moment.

Tigre Uno actually starts off the match with the advantage but his time on top does not last long. If the recent partnership with James Storm has taught Sanada anything, it’s that he needs to be more aggressive and he sure shows it in this match. Once Sanada gets a game plan in his head, he executes it and does not look back. He unloads on Tigre Uno in a flurry of offense meant to disorient his opponent. The offense works. Tigre Uno tries to fight back but just can’t. Sanada does not let up one bit and that soon ends him the pin fall victory and a trip to the second round of the tournament.

Winner: Sanada

James Storm does not show much emotion for Sanada’s win other than to simply clap a few times and then walk away. He doesn’t even bother to stay at ringside long enough to walk with Sanada back to the locker room. This doesn’t seem to bother Sanada however, as he simply just exits the ring and quietly heads to the back.

Cutting to the backstage area, we see a summit between all Menagerie members before Crazzy Steve’s match tonight.

Initially there is a lot of celebration between The Menagerie members over Rebel’s victory over Angelina Love earlier in the night but their focus quickly changes to Crazzy Steve’s upcoming X Division tournament match against old nemesis Robbie E. Knux grabs Crazzy Steve to get him to focus. He tells him that allow they have one title, they need as many as they can get and Crazzy Steve has an opportunity now to gain the X Division title and that’s an opportunity The Menagerie cannot give up. Steve then puts his game face on, or what passes for a game face for him and the entire Menagerie clan walk out the door as the camera cuts to commercial.


Before the match between Crazzy Steve and Robbie E can begin, we see a backstage segment with EC3 and Rockstar Spud. Both Spud and EC3 are walking when they come upon MVP, Lashley, and Kenny King.

Lashley and Kenny King immediately spring up like they are ready to fight but MVP calms them down. MVP then asks EC3 what he can do for them. EC3 says that although he knows that they haven’t gotten along in the past, they now have something in common; they were both stripped of any power by A.J. Styles and Bobby Roode. He then proposes a business deal where they come together to fight for their power back. To help sweeten the pot a little, EC3 has Rockstar Spud hand him an envelope which EC3 then hands to MVP. MVP opens it but does not reveal the contents inside to the camera. MVP then smiles, puts the envelope down, and says that they will get back to them as soon as possible. EC3 then excuses himself and walks off camera as the show transitions to the ring area.

Match #3: Crazzy Steve vs. Robbie E. – Round 1/X Division Championship Tournament

DJ Z, stationed at the DJ booth, does the introduction for his Bro Man counterpart, Robbie E, complete with loud and annoying dance music. Once Crazzy Steve begins making his way down to the ring, DJ Z does his best to distract him. Crazzy Steve does not seem bothered one bit by the noise that DJ Z is making; instead he calmly walks up to DJ Z and offers him a balloon. DJ Z looks at the balloon in disgust as Robbie E comes up from behind and starts attacking Crazzy Steve.

Once the referee gets the two to stop fighting on the outside of the ring, the match can officially begin. What can technically be called a “match” was actually more of a collection of really loud noises. When Robbie E was on top DJ Z would play anything he could to get Robbie pumped up/Crazzy Steve disoriented. When it was Crazzy Steve’s turn, he would just continue to blow his clown horn in Robbie E’s face. This back and forth prevented both men from getting any sort of momentum going. The crowd started to turn on the match. Crazzy Steve, being the showman that he is, knew he had to do something. He grabbed his collection of balloons from the outside of the ring and offered one to Robbie E, just like he did with DJ Z at the beginning of the match. Robbie E, who apparently really likes balloons, was more than willing to take the balloon. But before he could get to it, Crazzy Steve popped it right in his face which caused some sort of powder to explode out which temporarily blinded Robbie E. Steve took advantage, hitting a quick hurricanrana on Robbie E which he followed up with a pin attempt and the 1, 2, 3.

Winner: Crazzy Steve

Crazzy Steve picks up another important win for the Menagerie against the Bro Mans, earning himself a spot in the second round of the X Division tournament. Following the match, Crazzy Steve begins handing out balloons to members of the audience as he makes his way back to the locker room. Robbie E is left to only shake his head while trying to get pieces of balloon and powder out of his face.


Coming back from commercial, a brief video package is shown of Samuel Shaw’s time in TNA. From his obsession over Christy Hemme to his feud with Mr. Anderson, to having Gunner help him out of the insane asylum, and then finally exercising his demons by defeating Mr. Anderson in a Loser Leaves Town match at Bound for Glory. Now Samuel has promised to help someone else who is struggling but he refuses to say who.

Cutting away from the video about Samuel Shaw, we see Samuel Shaw is already standing in the middle of the ring with a microphone in hand.

Samuel starts off by saying that now that he is “cured”, he is going to make it his mission in life to help others exercise any demons that they might have. He also says that he has identified the first man that he intends to help. This man has recently taken on a more hardcore attitude which he knows is just not him. That man is Magnus. He calls Magnus out to the ring.

Magnus, flanked by his tag team partner Bram, begins slowly making his way down to the ring, obviously unsure of what Samuel is thinking/planning to do at this moment. Bram enters the ring first, shielding Magnus from any sneak attack.

Samuel starts off by thanking Magnus for coming out to the ring tonight to talk. Samuel tells Magnus that he does not believe that Magnus is really this deranged, hardcore maniac that he’s been turned into over the past few months. Samuel says that he knows what it’s like to become obsessed with something and have it ruin your entire life and he just doesn’t want that to happen to Magnus. Magnus, almost shocked at what Samuel is saying, does not respond, rather it is Bram who thanks Samuel for his concern but that they don’t need his help. Almost like that something seems to snap in Samuel and he becomes irate towards Bram. He accuses Bram of being the one to bring Magnus down this dark path and that he must be taken care of before Magnus can be free again. When Bram moves to confront Samuel, he pulls out what looks like a small taser and attacks Bram with it. The shock from it must have been enough to at least temporarily knock out Bram as he immediately falls to the ring apron. As medical personal attend to Bram, Magnus becomes enraged and attacks Samuel, starting another impromptu match.

Match #4: Magnus vs. Samuel Shaw

Samuel Shaw seems to have very little chance in this match from the get go but for whatever reason, that doesn’t seem to bother him. Despite getting repeatedly beaten up by Magnus, Samuel does very little to relate or defend himself. Instead he spends the entire duration of the match trying to convince Magnus to see his side but Magnus won’t listen due to Samuel attacking Bram earlier. Samuel hangs on long enough to get his full point across but when it becomes clear that Magnus just isn’t listening, Samuel decides to live to fight other day, succumbing to the force that is Magnus.

Winner: Magnus

Following the match, Magnus immediately goes to check on Bram who now appears perfectly fine. The two then begin to head to the back as Samuel Shaw creepily looks on.


Match #5: A.J. Styles vs. Ethan Carter III

It is now main event time. Tonight’s main event pits the returning A.J. Styles against the nephew of the former TNA President, Ethan Carter III. EC3 is the first man out to the ring, getting a pretty lukewarm reaction from the crowd. When A.J. Styles comes out, the reaction is the exact opposite which only makes EC3 even angrier. Once A.J. enters the ring the referee calls for the bell and the match begins.

Since neither of these men have much experience against the other, it takes both of them a while to get a feel for what the other plans to do. A.J. appears to be very cautious about which moves he chooses to use as he knows that an EC3 crony could be around at any moment to attack him so he needs to be ready to defend himself against not only the crony, but EC3 himself. On the other hand, EC3, feeling confident that someone will have his back, is less cautious with his move set, willing to try different things which may or may not work out. After crashing and burning several times, EC3 begins to lose steam quickly. A.J., sensing an opportunity, capitalizes on the opening and takes control of the match. EC3 begins to panic, sensing that maybe help isn’t coming after all. Despite this, A.J. still retains control of the momentum. After about a minute or so, A.J. moves to put EC3 away. He gets EC3 in the Styles Clash position but right as he is about to hit it, the lights go out. When the lights come back on, EC3 is nowhere to be seen but unfortunately for A.J., Lashley is waiting right behind him. When A.J. turns around, Lashley spears him which causes the referee to immediately call for the bell.

Winner via DQ: A.J. Styles

EC3 then emerges from under the ring to join Lashley in the beat down of Styles. MVP, Kenny King, and Rockstar Spud soon join the two. Bobby Roode attempts to help A.J. but the numbers are too much for him and he soon suffers the same fate as A.J. The show ends with a shot of all five men standing over A.J. and Bobby.

GFW News & Notes - PPV in England Announced, Upcoming PPVs?, International X Division, New Tag Teams, & More

- GFW just announced that, for the first time ever, they will be holding a pay per view event in the UK. A slightly revised schedule for the upcoming UK tour was just announced. The dates will remain the same but the Thursday, January 29th event at the Hydro Arena in Glasgow will be changed to a TV taping...The Friday, January 30th event at the Phones 4U Arena in Manchester will remain a house show...Saturday, January 31st at the Wembley Arena in London will host the brand new PPV "Maximum Impact" which will air in the U.S. February 1st.

- There are some backstage that are questioning the decision now to hold a PPV event in the UK, especially since they've already scheduled a live edition of GFW TV in Nashville three weeks before which obviously doesn't give them much build time. There is already understanding that they will most likely be taking a loss from this event but officials also felt that it was important to establish the international feel for GFW as soon as possible and the upcoming UK tour was seen as a perfect opportunity.

- Despite keeping with the old TNA TV storylines, GFW has yet to announce if they are going to be keeping with the old TNA pay per view schedule or switching it around. The only confirmed pay per view event at this time is Maximum Impact coming up in January.

- It is expected that a majority of the new international talent that GFW will be bringing in over the next few months will be X Division-like wrestlers. The hope is that the international talent will give the X Division the new and innovative feel that it had in the early years of TNA.

- GFW also has plans to bring in a few new tag teams over the next few months, some as one time deals, others to stay longer. The controversial decision to reunite the Hardy Boyz and have them win the GFW tag titles happened because GFW officials wanted the still popular team on top in order to help get the newer tag teams over easier.

- The very first edition of GFW TV on CMT only scored a 0.8 in the ratings which is near the same ballpark as they were getting on Spike. Officials though expect the ratings to fluctuate in either direction for a while as people get used to the network/name change.

- Preview for 11/20...If I can't have it, nobody can appears to be the new motto of the newly formed stable of EC3, Rockstar Spud, MVP, Lashley, and Kenny King. Stripped of all power by Bobby Roode/Jeff Jarrett's win at Bound for Glory, the former enemies decided to team up last week when Lashley attacked A.J. Styles during his match against EC3. Now united, what does this new stable have planned and can Bobby Roode or A.J. Styles stop them before it once again gets out of control?...Knockouts Champion Rebel once again earned a shocking victory when she defeated Angelina Love last week, albeit with help from her Menagerie friends. Now this week, the other member of the Beautiful People, Velvet Sky takes her shot at trying to teach Rebel a lesson...Looking for some new competition, the GFW tag team champions Matt and Jeff Hardy have issued an open challenge for any team in GFW or not, to come and face them this week. Who answers their call?...Things went very wrong in Samuel Shaw's attempt at "helping" Magnus. Despite saying he's cured, Samuel snapped at Magnus' tag team partner Bram, temporarily stunning him with a taser which caused Magnus to retaliate. How does Samuel now plan to help Magnus?...Also, two more round 1 matches in the X Division Championship tournament...All this and more, Thursday November 20th, now on CMT!

I like this diary so far! A little unsure on a TNA re-brand because personally I want GFW to be it's own thing but with that being said, you've made some great booking decisions so far and you have a good roster to be going on with. Keep up the good work
