Bill Hanstock of SBNation.com is featuring an interview with Jeff Jarrett discussing the announcement and launch of Global Force Wrestling today. Jarrett talked at length on why he feels the wrestling world has room for a new promotion like this.
“[WWE] have built a brand over the last 50, 60 years. And truly, [WrestleMania] weekend is the perfect example of just how global their brand is. Professional wrestling has been around since the advent of television. There is definitely room, space for a brand new promotion to come on the scene. And we’re going to put out the very best product that we can. Our mission statement is going to be, right at the very top, that we are going to put out a professional wrestling product that listens to the fans, engages the fans. We are going to immerse ourselves with the wrestling fan and that is going to be first and foremost. We’re very excited. This is day one of a very, very fantastic journey. In the scope of things, it’s still very, very early. [Monday’s press release] was as soon as I could get information out. More information to come.”
