Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling has announced that former WWE Women’s Champion Mickie James will compete in the Women’s Title tournament at the upcoming set of TV tapings in Las Vegas.
Previously announced for the tapings are Bobby Roode, Magnus, Sonjay Dutt, Chris Sabin, Justin Gabriel, Chris Masters and more. Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Eric Young will be working this weekend’s Global Force Wrestling live events in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Wisconsin.
Global Force Wrestling’s kayfabe feud with TNA Wrestling is expected to continue at this month’s TNA TV tapings in Orlando. Reports suggest that the big angle will go down on July 22nd, which looks to be a live episode (with a little tape delay), just a couple days before the big July 24th GFW TV Taping in Las Vegas.
Wrestling promotion Heroes & Legends sent out an announcement stating that TNA has unfortunately pulled both Abyss and Tyrus (Brodus Clay) from their scheduled appearances at the July 25th Heroes & Legends V event. Here’s their announcement:
“Due to circumstances beyond our control, TNA has pulled Brodus Clay/Tyrus & Abyss from our event so they can work on TNA’s TV taping. We are currently looking for suitable replacements for both.”
