The Force Begins - GFW IMPACT

Recommended Posts



June 30th, 2017:




The new GFW arrives on the professional wrestling scene with some momentum.


The company has seen a drastic spike in its social media reach in recent months following a tour through India. Ratings for its weekly “Impact!” program are on the uptick.


Broadcast and streaming deals are in the works both in India and the United Kingdom. And the legal battle that played out dramatically in a Nashville courtroom last year has seemingly been put to rest.


Jarrett and Anthem Executive Vice President Ed Nordholm are banking on strengthened international partnerships, a growing digital presence and revamped roster buoying GFW as an alternative to the unquestioned professional wrestling behemoth, the WWE.

Slammiversary 2017:


Allie, Braxton Sutter and Mahabali Shera defeated KM, Kongo Kong and Laurel Van Ness


The Latin American Xchange (Ortiz and Santana) © (with Diamante, Homicide and Konnan) (Impact) defeated Drago and El Hijo del Fantasma (AAA), Laredo Kid and Garza Jr. (The Crash) and Naomichi Marufuji and Taiji Ishimori (Pro Wrestling Noah)

Sonjay Dutt © defeated Low-Ki (2–1)


Sienna (GFW) defeated Rosemary (Impact) by submission


Alberto El Patrón (GFW) (with Dos Caras) defeated Lashley (Impact) (with King Mo)



After an incredible Slammiversary event, GFW Impact's future is extremely bright. Alberto El Patron is the Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion! Lashley has a rematch clause but the question is, when will he invoke it?

James Storm was lifeless coming out of his Strap Match with Ethan Carter III. Is the Cowboy gone?

The blood feud between Eddie Edwards & Davey Richards has finally been settled. Where do both men go now?

Sienna unified both Women's Titles, but the Demon Assassin, Rosemary is far from done with her.

Tune in on the next episode of Impact Wrestling!
