Big GFW News: Promotion Partnering with Biggest Loser Creator, Airing 52 Weeks a Year, No TV Deal Currently in Place, More

global force wrestlingThe Hollywood Reporter has released more information regarding Jeff Jarrett's new Global Force Wrestling Promotion, and this is likely the "Hollywood media outlet" that Jarrett was referring to yesterday when he noted the GFW announcement would be delayed.

The Reporter is noting GFW is partnering with "The Biggest Loser" television show creator Dave Broome, and Jarrett and Broome are shopping television rights to matches that will air "both live and live to tape" along with "unscripted fare." Broome states that interest is high from both major broadcast and cable networks.

"It just won't be a bunch of wrestling matches; we have exciting announcements to come," Broome says. "TNA or WWE right now is match after match after match. Global Force Wrestling is not going to do that. There will be matches but there will be a lot more and a lot more variety placed into the actual events that will be really innovative and fresh."

The report goes on to state the promotion has over "500 performers," (which seems improbable) and will serve as competition to both TNA and WWE. GFW will air 52 weeks a year, and it's unclear as to whether or not country music star Toby Keith is involved in the promotion.
