GFW REACHES AGREEMENTS WITH EUROPEAN PROMOTIONS
NASHVILLE – On the heels of partnership agreements with the top promotions in Japan and Mexico, Global Force Wrestling has formed an alliance with several of the top independent wrestling promotions throughout Europe. Revolution Pro Wrestling (www.revolutionprowrestling.com, covering south of England), New Generation Wrestling (www.ngwuk.com, covering north of England), Premier British Wrestling (www.pbwwrestling.com, covering Scotland), Westside Xtreme Wrestling (www.wxw-wrestling.com, covering Germany) and Emerald Wrestling Promotions (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Emerald-Wrestling-Promotions/100651866652805, covering Ireland) all have decided to #JoinTheForce. “If you look through the history of pro wrestling it’s littered with great talent from Europe,” Global Force Wrestling founder and CEO Jeff Jarrett said. “We put the word ‘Global’ in this new brand, and we meant it. We believe fans want a wrestling promotion that brings something new and exciting and will engage them at every turn, and that’s what we’re going to do.”
Veteran wrestler Doug Williams, a multiple singles and tag team champion in his native England and in various U.S. promotions, has been instrumental in helping Global Force Wrestling put together this European alliance. “I am very excited to be a part of the Force, and I really look forward to helping facilitate the relationships between GFW and these top independent wrestling promotions,” Williams said. “The European style will bring something a little different to the table, just as the other partners will. I can’t wait to see it all come together under one umbrella.” GFW announced its partnership with Mexico’s AAA on April 29 and with New Japan Pro Wrestling on June 23.
