Global Force Wrestling LLC (GFW) is an American professional wrestling promotion founded in 2014 by Jeff Jarrett.



With Jeff Jarrett out as minority investor of TNA Wrestling, he debuted the branding of Global Force Wrestling in April 2014. Since that time, he has been promoting the brand and establishing international partnerships with wrestling promotions across the world. The organization has a strategic partnership with 25/7 Productions and David Broome (creator of NBC's The Biggest Loser). Broome has stated that the organization plans to create new on-air content 52 weeks per year.

As of August 2014, GFW has announced working agreements with Mexican promotion Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA),Japan’s New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) promotion,\ multiple European promotions, South African promotion World Wrestling Professionals (WWP), and promotions from Australia and New Zealand. As part of GFW's relationship with New Japan Pro Wrestling, GFW "presented" NJPW's Wrestle Kingdom 9 at the Tokyo Dome on the American pay-per-view market on January 4, 2015, which featured commentary from Jim Ross and Matt Striker.

The first Global Force Wrestling show took place on June 12, 2015 at The Ballpark at Jackson in Jackson, Tennessee, as part of GFW’s “Grand Slam Tour”, which entailed holding events at minor league baseball stadiums. In that show's main event, Bullet Club members Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows defeated the New Heavenly Bodies.

The inaugural television tapings took place at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first three events are scheduled to take place on July 24, 2015, August 21, 2015 and October 23, 2015.

On May 6, 2015, Jarrett announced talent for their upcoming TV tapings, which include Bullet Club members Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows, the Killer Elite Squad, and Chael Sonnen as an expert analyst. On May 11, 2015, GFW announced the rest of their roster. The next day, GFW announced that four champions (Global, NEX*GEN, Tag Team and Women's Champion) will be crowned at the July 24 tapings in Las Vegas. On July 9, 2015, Jeff Jarrett announced that the name of the GFW TV show will be called GFW Amped.
