State of GFW Address
For the last couple of weeks I have graced you all with my "State of Address" for every major American wrestling company. Now I move to the last company I wanted to speak on and by far the hardest company to talk about. This time last year the talk of the wrestling world was Jeff Jarrett and Global Force Wrestling and the fact that they would be next big company in the United States well that never happended and things have still improved. But things have almost come to a sandstill with GFW in recent months as very little news has come out.
Since there isn't a lot out there about GFW I am going to base things off what we know and that is that Jeff tried very hard to find a domestic TV deal, but as far as I know didn't find anything and the closet he had gotten to being on TV is the GFW invasion of TNA from last year. This I think did more good for TNA than Global, because it seems to me at least that TNA may have used this "Invasion" as a shot in the arm because soon after it they start getting a little more serious with plans and the future of the company.
However, I am not saying that this didn't benefit Jeff as it did, because it expanded the exposure for GFW even if it was for just a little bit of time and not permanately. See if they had gotten something lined up after the TNA story was over then the momentum could've kept building, but it didn't and slowly but surely the momentum died and was completely lost. I feel that this is the biggest issue for Global that they have no momentum and are putting too much weight on the fact that they don't have a TV contract.
Now things aren't all bad in GFW as there is no doubting that Jeff Jarrett does know one thing very well and that is how to build new stars from nothing considering that is exactly what he did for the first 5 years of TNA's existance to much success I might add. So I am not worried about GFW, because I have faith that Double J can build winner it will just take time and something to give him some momentum to build on and get the fans interested again.
