IMPACT Wrestling Acquires Global Force Wrestling
NASHVILLE | TORONTO – Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions LLC, a subsidiary of Anthem Sports & Entertainment Corp. and parent company of IMPACT Wrestling, announced today that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Global Force Entertainment, LLC d/b/a Global Force Wrestling.

Jeff Jarrett, the founder of both IMPACT Wrestling and Global Force Entertainment, will join Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions as a member of its board of managers, equity owner and Chief Creative Officer.

“We are thrilled to be joining forces with Anthem as a partner to build the business,” said Karen Jarrett. “This partnership will be complementary of our strengths and bolster our capabilities to grow the IMPACT Wrestling brand. Ed Nordholm as President and Jeff Jarrett as Chief Creative Officer make a great tag team”

“We are excited by the progress we have made with IMPACT Wrestling since acquiring the business in January,” said Ed Nordholm, president of Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions. “Jeff and his team have been instrumental in this success and we are pleased that we have reached an agreement on the basis of which we can combine our businesses to continue to grow. Slammiversary XV will be a fitting occasion to bring the promotions together and merge the titles under the new IMPACT combined belts. By combining our resources and talent, we can produce the best product for our global audience.”

sounds like we know who is going to win the "promotional war" between TNA and GFW. Anthem really isn't that bright.

The only thing GFW had were the title belts, which were already on their TV show. It's like going into a clothes store and buying the pants you were wearing when you came in. Hats off to Jeff Jarrett though. Who said there were no marks left in wrestling?

Anthem is like, "we'll show Billy Corgan who can buy a more worthless wrestling brand."

Actually, if they were smart, they would have already sent in ten applications to trademark NWA for wrestling related activity...having an National TV show would pretty much seal the deal.

There's a sucker born every minute, except in wrestling where there are 10 born a minute.

Possibly your best line ever.  You just set the bar for the week.

Maybe they're running the world's worst "Cash 4 Gold" program.  I'm sure there are a couple dozen defunct promotions that would be thrilled to sell their "company" to Anthem for a chunk of change.

Tell Anyhem that Corgan is interested. Tell Corgan that Anthem is interested. When the bidding war ends in 2 months you'll be a millionaire.

This is mind boggling.  Jarrett "sold" the company he just created from scratch recently, and has very little tangible assets, to the company he just left? This is like make believe stuff kids do in 3rd grade.

You just know "Anthem Sports and Entertainment Corp." is run out of someone's garage.

Slightly unrelated, but Cody Rhodes, who is still technically a GFW titleholder, has said (through his wife anyway) that he is done with both GFW and Impact.
