Creator Of The Biggest Loser To Produce Global Force Wrestling; Access To More Than 500 Performers

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Dave Broome, creator of The Biggest Loser, has teamed with Jeff Jarrett's Global Force Wrestling to executive produce new matches as well as unscripted programming.

The article notes that GFW "has more than 500 performers with additional announcements planned as more deals are finalized," which means they have access to both the domestic and international independent scene.

According to Broome, the plan is to have GFW on the air 52 weeks per year and they're currently shopping the product to television networks.

"It just won't be a bunch of wrestling matches; we have exciting announcements to come. TNA or WWE right now is match after match after match. Global Force Wrestling is not going to do that. There will be matches but there will be a lot more and a lot more variety placed into the actual events that will be really innovative and fresh," he says.

    Well, showbusiness is all about hyping and creating expectations. I hope that, for the good of the business, competition once again rises to the ocassion.

    I laugh at tna and wwe are match after match after match… Do they even watch wwe or tna.. There isn’t match after match after match.. I am shocked if we get 3 matches on tna..

      3 matches that last more than 4 minutes total.

    Hopefully Jarrett’s recent accusations from IWA Mid South won’t have any affect on the promotion. It’s doubtful but still doesn’t make Jarrett look good. He should be above acting foolish like that if reports are true. Especially if he is to become a serious competitor to both WWE and TNA.

    I hope this company becomes a huge success. Competition is great in wrestling. Let’s just hope that Jarret remembers that this day and age, wrestling fans WANT more wrestling.

      Actually, what i want most of all is variety. I like performers coming to the top for a whie, then moving back in the mix. I hate seeing the same matches week in and week out.

      I feel this is a problem with WWE. Such a huge roster, about 10 guys get any real screen time.

    More nothing announcements. Except to say there won’t be much wrestling?
    Great work – because there is just TOO much wrestling in TNA and WWE. Why would anyone tune into a wrestling promotion to watch wrestling?
