We previously reported many of the names on the Global Force Wrestling roster will only be working non-televised live events, so there are no conflicts with their existing deals with respective companies. 

TNA and Ring of Honor won’t allow contracted talent to work for GFW, although ROH gave permission for the live events only. Despite not having permission from TNA, Tyrus has accepted a deal with GFW, although terms have not been revealed, and the company can’t really prevent him from accepting non-televised deals. Another surprise signing was ROH star Moose, but a deal was worked out and it’s believed anyone can work the live events or shows as long as it’s not televised. 

In regards to Jeff Jarrett working out a television deal and signing more talent, he is reported to be in early talks with Spike, CMT, Fox Sports, and WGN about possible deals. He doesn’t have a deal in place with former WWE announcer Jim Ross, but they are in negotiations as well. The hope is that GFW will have Ross work with Chael Sonnen in the booth, and scheduling and pay rate is what the agreement would come down to.
