Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling is partnering with TV producers A. Smith & Co. Productions (known for America Ninja Warriors) to create a new pro wrestling format.
Real Screen reports the “as-yet-untitled series will unite international wrestlers from across GFW’s roster with the event production style of A. Smith & Co. programs, such as Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen and NBC’s forthcoming Spartan Race.”
They also quote Arthur Smith, CEO of A. Smith & Co. Productions as stating, “Global Force Wrestling is a complete reinvention of the sport that will really resonate with viewers – we’re taking what fans are traditionally used to seeing and flipping it on its head.
All sports go through transitions, and wrestling is primed for its next evolution. We’re going to be adding a number of new features and elements that are going to completely change the entertainment level of the sport”.
