The cycle of Jeff Jarrett rejoining Impact Wrestling is complete … because the company has officially acquired his second promotion Global Force Wrestling.
Impact issued a press release today announcing that parent company Anthem has agreed to acquire GFW and JJ will now serve as Chief Creative Officer for Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions.
Executive Consultant and Jeff’s wife Karen Jarrett commented, “We are thrilled to be joining forces with Anthem as a partner to build the business. 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.”
Nordholm also commented in the release, saying that Jarrett has been “instrumental” in growing the brand since Anthem acquired Impact in January and that the belts for both companies would be merging under new titles at Slammiversary XV.
While the two companies have been merged on television since April, this makes the move official both in the ring and out of it.
