From the "Well, Duh" file, Karen Jarrett officially confirmed the merger of Global Force Wrestling and Impact Wrestling on Thursday's episode of Impact.
After Jeff Jarrett left TNA Impact Wrestling in 2013, Global Force Wrestling was launched. In the summer of 2015, a series of TV tapings were filmed called Apmped. The shows, which were taped in Las Vegas, looked suspiciously like Impact Wrestling. The tapes were never aired despite Jeff Jarrett shopping them to national and international markets for well over a year.
Global Force Wrestling had been running co-headline shows with established independents across the US up until the winter of 2016. Then, Jeff Jarrett's return was announced by Anthem to Impact Wrestling and his focus clearly shifted.
