Anyone hoping that Jeff Jarrett's Global Force Wrestling (GFW) would be a 21st century NWA organization can't be thrilled with this report.
PWInsider is saying that Ring of Honor (ROH) lawyers sent a cease & desist letter to GFW over television and radio ads the company was running in Las Vegas, Nevada for their initial tapings of their television show Amped, from the The Orleans this Friday, July 24. The advertisements allegedly used the Ring of Honor name while promoting appearances by "ROH stars" at the event.
It's unlikely that ROH talent will be on Amped for several reasons - the company immediately moved to keep Moose off any GFW dates that might end up being broadcast, and recently pulled back Chris Sabin as well, plus, ROH has an internet pay-per-view (iPPV) happening across the country in Baltimore on Friday night.
But Sin City is an important market for the company, as it's a frequent stop for live shows and has two stations airing ROH TV, so they're likely being extra vigilant to prevent confusion over which shows they're producing versus which ones Jarrett is.
Still no word on when or where Amped will air.
Thoughts on this report, Cagesiders?
Another sign of desperation on GFW's part? Smart business or pettiness from ROH?
