Impact Wrestling announced today that it has terminated their business relationship with Jeff Jarrett and Global Force Entertainment Inc., effective immediately.
Jarrett had returned to the company in January of this year after Anthem Sports & Entertainment purchased it from Dixie Carter. Jarrett had founded Global Force Wrestling in 2014, and the two brands were slowly merging. In June, Anthem reported that Impact Wrestling had acquired Global Force Wrestling, however that deal was reportedly never officially completed.
On September 5th, Impact Wrestling announced that Jarrett was "taking an indefinite leave of absence from his position as Chief Creative Officer to focus on personal matters."
There was reportedly an incident with Jarrett at an independent show over the weekend. We will have more on that shortly. You can check out the official statement from Impact below:
