Global Force Wrestling and POP TV have signed a new contract that will keep Impact on the cable network through 2018. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter broke the news in the latest edition, and it was noted that the deal is not “financially effective”.
WON is also reporting that Alberto El Patron is not done with GFW. He’s reportedly due back at Impact during the November tapings. El Patron was stripped of the GFW World Title earlier this month after a domestic violence incident that has since been dropped and disposed of.
GFW has also released a statement on the incident involving Rosemary and Sexy Star at last weekend’s TripleMania event in Mexico.
It was an honor for GFW to be invited to participate in TripleMania XXV, held this past weekend in Mexico City. The AAA talent that we have worked with have been consummate professionals and the company organized and delivered an extraordinary event, in which both DJZ and Andrew Everett had spectacular showings following their recent surgeries. While the incident with Sexy Star marred an outstanding show, AAA executives have confirmed to us that appropriate measures are being taken in respect of this incident. Both AAA and Sexy Star have apologized to Rosemary. It is time to focus on the positives of the weekend (TripleMania XXV outrated the other sports entertainment event on Saturday evening in Mexico; Eddie Edwards became the first gaijin to win the GHC Heavyweight title at NOAH) and look forward to building our relationship with AAA and NOAH to bring an ever improving wrestling product to our fans.
