The latest “new era” for TNA/Impact/Global Force Wrestling kicked off last night in Orlando with the unification of Impact and GFW’s top singles championships at Slammiversary. On the men’s side, Alberto Del Rio defeated Bobby Lashley and Sienna defeated Rosemary to become the Unified Women’s Champion. Also of note, former NFL running back DeAngelo Williams made his wrestling debut in a tag match with MOOSE against Eli Drake and Chris Adonis (Masters).

After first merging with and later purchasing Global Force Wrestling from Jeff Jarrett last week, Anthem announced Slammiversary weekend their intentions to rebrand the company as Global Force Wrestling. The Impact name will still remain the name of the television promotion, but Global Force, not TNA or Impact will be the “sanctioning body” if you will.  No word on if Anthem also got all the Global Force Gold in the deal.
