TNA IMPACT BECOMES GFW IMPACT
Anthem Sports will rebrand TNA as Global Force Wrestling with Jeff Jarrett in charge of creative. The Impact program on Pop TV will continue as Impact, similar to WWE’s program is called Raw.
The rebranding will begin on the 15th anniversary of the launched TNA with Slamaversary. We’re a global brand,” Jarrett said of the rebranding. “We have partnerships in Mexico, Japan, other places. Collectively coming together, we’ve combined forces and basically, the rebrand final touches happen at ‘Slammiversary.'”
“When Anthem got involved we saw a rare opportunity to get involved with an asset that already had global distribution,” said Ed Nordholm. “It’s a 3,500-hour library, broadcast in 120 countries, existing distribution contracts in India, Africa and now the United Kingdom. “The timeline to take a ground zero promotion to that kind of penetration was 15 years. The work now is to fix some things.”http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/tna-impact-becomes-gfw-impact/http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Slamaversary-logo-600x257.pnghttp://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Slamaversary-logo-150x64.pngNewsWrestling News
