– The GFW – TNA invasion angle is expected to kick off at the July 22nd TNA Impact Wrestling episode, which will air on a slight tape delay, and continue through that week’s tapings and the July 24th Global Force Wrestling TV tapings from Las Vegas, where the first GFW Champion and Women’s Champion will be crowned with tournaments.
Eric Young, Bobby Roode and other TNA stars are being sent to the GFW TV tapings for the angle. Young will also be working this weekend’s GFW live events to confront Jeff Jarrett. Jarrett wanted Matt Hardy to be one of the TNA stars sent for the angle but at last word the deal wasn’t confirmed yet. GFW stars confirmed for the GFW tapings include PJ Black (Justin Gabriel), Nick Aldis (Magnus), Chris Mordetzky (Chris Masters), IWGP Jr. Champion Kushida, Chris Sabin, Sonjay Dutt, Sanada, Mickie James and Lei’D Tapa. It’s possible some of these GFW stars will work the TNA tapings that week.
Regarding rumors of Jarrett working with country music star Toby Keith, who was rumored to be buying into TNA at one point, The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that Keith has told Jarrett he will help with financing GFW only if Jarrett can accomplish a certain thing. We don’t know exactly what that term is but it’s likely a TV deal.
