Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling announced that they have signed a deal with 25/7 Productions and Dave Broome, the creator of NBC’s The Biggest Loser. No TV deal is in place yet but 25/7 will be producing GFW TV shows.

Broome said in a press release that was only released in .jpg form:

“It’s easy to get excited about Global Force Wrestling when you get to know Jeff Jarrett and see his passion and understand his vision. He’s eager to bring a new perspective to professional wrestling, and we’re eager to help him achieve that goal.”

The press release also touted how GFW has over 500 talents in their database. The Hollywood Reporter did an article on GFW and notes that they plan on running 52 weeks per year as competition to WWE and TNA. Jarrett and Broome are currently shopping TV rights to matches — which will air both live and live-to-tape — as well as unscripted fare. Broome says interest has been high from both major broadcast and cable networks.

“It just won’t be a bunch of wrestling matches; we have exciting announcements to come. TNA or WWE right now is match after match after match. Global Force Wrestling is not going to do that. There will be matches but there will be a lot more and a lot more variety placed into the actual events that will be really innovative and fresh,” Broome said.

A fictional reality show concept could work as a way to expand the wrestling in-canon universe to outside of the arenas. I tend to like when they do stuff like "Mike Knux returns to his roots", or "Foley searches the south for Jarrett". Those kind of segments work when they take them seriously.

I also liked ReAction back when they kept the use of the ReAction camera style to that show, rather than throughout Impact. I will be less thrilled if they overdo that kind of camera work when they are in their arenas.

If they do it like Gut-Check, or Tough Enough, where they act as if the "reality segments" are more real than the rest of the show, then I will be displeased and disinterested in their product.
