Jeff Jarrett joined the Chad Dukes Wrestling show on Wednesday afternoon to preview Global Force Wrestling’s presentation of New Japan’s “Wrestle Kingdom 9.”  In his discussion with Dukes, Jarrett talks about growing up in the business, the vision for Global Force Wrestling, Jim Ross, the crowded wrestling market, his relationship with TNA, WrestleKingdom 9, and more.

As the founder of TNA and now Global Force Wrestling, Jarrett is no stranger to starting wrestling promotions from scratch.  One of the biggest questions about his latest venture, Global Force Wrestling has been what the promotion will actually be.  After the initial announcement of GFW’s formation and the assembling of a talent database, many assumed that it would be a traditional wrestling group.  However, the announcement that Jarrett’s new company would be “presenting” New Japan Pro Wrestling’s WrestleKingdom show led others to wonder if GFW would be more of a sanctioning body for independent promotions.  Jarrett clarified the vision of Global Force Wrestling for the CDW audience, it would be a little of both.

“Global Force will be its… a standalone.  I think that’s a nice enough term for it.  With its own roster, with its own sponsors, own venue, running shows everything that goes with a promotion.  But at Global Force Wrestling we also have a fundamental philosophy that’s a 180 from what’s been done over the last 10-15 years.  Most promotions act like they’re the only promotion that exists and no other promotions…they certainly don’t talk about them and if they do they don’t talk about them in a negative light.  We’ve got a different philosophy.  We’ve recognized and partnered with the best promotions in the world, New Japan’s at the very top of that list.  They’re obviously the best promotion in Japan.  AAA, in Mexico, a red-hot promotion in Mexico.  We have partnered with independent promotions around the world.  Our South African partner, we’re going to be making some announcements on that in the days and weeks to come.

Yes, we’re going to be a stand alone promotion, and that’s going to roll out in 2015, but we’re also going to partner and what better way to step onto the grand stage and create even more brand awareness, partnering with New Japan bringing WrestleKingdom 9.”
