Anthem Sports and Entertainment, who is now officially overseeing all business regarding TNA going forward, met with TNA co-founder and current owner of Global Force Wrestling Jeff Jarrett last week according to new reports on Wednesday.
Anthem confirmed with John Pollock of Fight Network (which Anthem is the parent company of) that Jarrett does not have a role with TNA nor is he serving as an advisor as conversations simply began recently between both parties. A report by PWInsider.com stated the meeting took place last Monday (December 5) between Jarrett and Anthem’s Ed Nordholm.
The same report indicated that Anthem is the process of trying to understand the TNA business model and more specifically during the era in which Jarrett was heavily involved with business decisions regarding creative. Jarrett officially resigned from TNA three years ago and remained on as an investor. He announced intentions of starting the new Global Force Wrestling brand back in 2014 that he then was allowed to promote on TNA television in 2015 including the Slammiversary PPV.
Should the talks between Jarrett and Anthem progress any further regarding a possible return to the company, the report by PWInsider stated that Jarrett still intends on continuing with the Global Force Wrestling brand as he has been actively taking meetings in Los Angeles along with A. Smith & Co. Productions. TNA returns to Orlando in January for the first set of Impact Wrestling tapings for Pop TV under the new Anthem regime. Both reports seemed to indicate many changes could be coming behind-the-scenes when it comes to TNA going forward in 2017.
