- We noted before that Jeff Jarrett was recently in the UK to negotiate a Global Force Wrestling TV deal and will be returning this fall for more talks. The Wrestling Observer notes that Jarrett is closer to finalizing a deal in the UK than anywhere else.
Regarding the GFW Texas live events being postponed that we noted earlier this week, while Jarrett will be in the UK, the real reason for the shows being delayed is a combination of weak ticket advances plus the fact that WWE and NXT are running in the same markets the weekend before.
As of this writing, GFW only has the October 23rd Las Vegas TV tapings and the two UK live events on the schedule. The Observer noted that after those events, GFW is in a similar situation as TNA and Lucha Underground as moving forward depends on the ability to secure a paying TV deal.
