PWInsider spoke with Impact Wrestling’s Josh Mathews about the disappearance of the Global Force Wrestling name on the promotional material sent out today. Mathews made the following remarks about the change:
“You know, I wish I could tell you everything and tell you that ‘this is what it’s going to be’, because I think we did a great job in January of getting rid of TNA, of getting rid of that brand and becoming Impact, then becoming GFW,” said Matthews. “Now, you’re right, if you look at that graphic, it says Impact Bound for Glory, and that’s the brand we are bringing to Ottawa. Those are the tapings that is coming to Ottawa. That’s the show that’s coming, Impact. I know that doesn’t really answer a whole lot of questions, but that’s what we’re doing. That’s what we’re bringing up there. That’s what you’re going to see and after what you see on November 5th, to be determined, I suppose.”
Mathews also mentioned that there has been discussions earlier today about possibly changing the name for the planned Global Wrestling Network stream service, however nothing had been decided in that regard.
