While the management has changed, it appears that the thought process backstage is still more or less the same in the company formerly known as TNA and now known as GFW.
TNA had a well-documented history of pursuing stars who left WWE for some reason and now it appears GFW is also interested in signing a former World Champion who recently left The Biggest Wrestling Company in the World.
During a recent conference call, the Head of Creative Team Dutch Mantell was asked whether they are interested in signing former WWE Star Jack Swagger and the GFW Official replied by saying that we could possibly see Swagger on Impact soon:
“I talk to Jack every couple of weeks. Since he left WWE, he has expressed some interest and we have some interest in him, He was on the road for 10 years, and I think right now he is enjoying his time off. But, I am interested in bringing him in. I think you could possibly see him in GFW soon.”
Jack Swagger was released by WWE back in March earlier this year and he has been working on the independent circuit ever since. If he does sign with GFW, it would be interesting to see what the company has in store for the former World Champion
