PRESS RELEASE: Global Force Wrestling Announces New Partnership

GFW issued the following:

Global Force Wrestling to partner with Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl

For Immediate Release
Aug. 16, 2016

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Global Force Wrestling will become the first-ever wrestling promotion to partner with a college football bowl game when it provides a night of entertainment for the teams at the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl.

At this private event, players, coaches and team officials will have a chance for a meet and greet with GFW co-founders Jeff and Karen Jarrett, Hall of Famer Scott Hall and other wrestlers and then settle in for an exciting card of wrestling action.

“Give all of the credit to the folks at the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl,” Jeff Jarrett said. “They approached Global Force with the idea of giving the players something different than any other bowl game, and I think it’s a perfect fit. Males 18 to 24 are a huge part of our demographic, and we’ll be as hyped to put on a great show as they will be to see one.

“There are a lot of ties between football and wrestling. So many great football players at the collegiate level have come into the ring and been successful when they put the cleats away. Who knows, we might have a future wrestling superstar in the crowd that night.”

Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl President and CEO Scott Ramsey said the game is always looking to provide entertaining and memorable events for the teams that travel to Nashville, and this is just another step.

“This is innovative and something that will be memorable for the players and we are excited about the partnership with Global Force Wrestling,” Ramsey said. “Jeff Jarrett is a Middle Tennessee native, and we know he has been in the wrestling business for decades. We are confident that this event will be one of the highlights of a great week of events that culminates with the 19th annual Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl on Dec. 30.”

Global Force Wrestling Signs Deal With Production Team For Wrestling Series

Source: PWMania.com

Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling has signed a deal with “American Ninja Warrior” producers A. Smith & Co. Productions to partner and develop a new professional wrestling TV series, described by Real Screen, which broke the news today, as “a new wrestling format within the sport while providing viewers with dramatic storylines and exclusive access to their favorite athletes.”

The story notes that the series would take the GFW roster and present them in a similar “event style” to some of A. Smith & Co.’s other productions, such as FOXs “Hell’s Kitchen.”  GFW has been taping and presenting some reality elements to videos they’ve released online to promote the Global Force Wrestling brand-name.

In a statement to Real Screen, Arthur Smith, CEO of  A. Smith & Co. Productions said,“Global Force Wrestling is a complete reinvention of the sport that will really resonate with viewers – we’re taking what fans are traditionally used to seeing and flipping it on its head.  All sports go through transitions, and wrestling is primed for its next evolution. We’re going to be adding a number of new features and elements that are going to completely change the entertainment level of the sport.”

Based on the wording of the article, it would appear this project under the GFW banner would be separate from the GFW Amped TV episodes that were taped last year in Las Vegas.

Jeff Jarrett Talks Major “Game Changing” Announcement For GFW, Nick Aldis & More

In a recent interview with The Rack, Jeff Jarrett teased an upcoming announcement for Global Force Wrestling that could be a “game changer” for the promotion.

Here are highlights:

 

GFW Amped television product:

“There is a lot of updates, we will be having an update, in what I like to call LA based here if not this week, for sure next week and that will be a game changer that is for sure for us. I am very excited to spread the news. On the international front we are going to continue to work the contracts. Amped is coming to your television sets to your home very very soon.”

Nick “Magnus” Aldis being the first GFW Champion:

“Nick checks a lot of the boxes I will say that as far as from bell to bell being a phenomenal wrestler, very personable at the meet & greats with kids and people of all ages. Many years ago I took him to India with me, I know before then but over there we shined a real light on him and as we say in the business, he took the ball and ran with it and was very successful. Nick has earned it, he’s a special talent, but he has earned it as he has earned everything he gets because he works hard.”

Going back to TNA and was closure needed:

“I don’t believe closure was needed, if you ask my wife Karen (Jarrett) she got closure and she thinks I got closure, but for me I try to do my best and not look in the rear mirror and look forward. I knew it was a great opportunity to create brand awareness for Global Force Wrestling. I can look at our digital numbers and know it was a success. Not only were we exposed on Destination America to millions of fans but all around the world in India, all throughout Europe, South Africa and just everywhere TNA’s footprints are, the Global Force Wrestling Brand was exposed and that was a big success.”
