Jeff Jarrett Comments On The GFW/TNA Relationship, Hints At A TNA Overseas Tour


During a recent interview with The Huffington Post, TNA’s Jeff Jarrett discussed the TNA/GFW relationship, WWE’s UK tournament and more. Here are the highlights…

On the cities he’s visited in the UK (Glasgow, Manchester and London) – is there an Impact Wrestling tour in the works?: “I’ll let you read into it what you will. You Brits are pretty perceptive but I’ll let you read into what you will. I apologise that there’s some things I can’t answer today because a deal’s not a deal until it’s a deal. When the I’s are dotted and t’s are crossed I’ll be happy to share the news with you!”

On the rumored meetings with ITV?: “You presume correctly!”

On WWE’s UK tournament and promotion teaming up like RevPro and New Japan: “It’s no secret that the relationship between the Impact Wrestling audience and fans in the UK has been very prosperous over the last few years. It did fall on hard times and that’s the main reason Ed and I are here – to start back on those positive relationships. The app was launched, it was rushed to market and there was a good reason for that – because of the Challenge TV situation we wanted the fan base to have a way to stay engaged. So we’re here with multiple discussions, with multiple networks, with promotors and doing media to re-energise the relationship across all its facets.”

On the GFW invasion angle & future GFW/TNA plans: “The relationship with GFW and Impact is going to be something that I’m obviously personally very excited for. We are coming up on the 15th year of Impact and started Global Force a couple of years ago, seeing them come together on some level will be great. The situation that happened a year and a half ago was great for all parties involved and obviously gave GFW quite a lot of exposure. As we roll into the second quarter of this year, the GFW-Impact relationship is just going to get better.”
