TNA founder Jeff Jarrett recently appeared on "Live Audio Wrestling" discussing his departure from TNA Wrestling in December 2013 and starting up Global Force Wrestling. Jarrett also confirmed his ownership stake in TNA and how it didn't permit him from starting up Global Force Wrestling as a new pro wrestling company.
"At the very end, I knew it was time to move on. I’m very grateful and thankful. The TNA fanbase over the years - very loyal and passionate. I can’t say enough about my TNA years, but I knew in 2014 it was time for something new. With Global Force, the vision I have for it is - you know, people love professional wrestling. Some people call it a “dirty word,” some people call it sports entertainment. It’s all one and the same. I believe in 2014 professional wrestling, it’s time to evolve."
