The current GFW vs. TNA storyline is not just a storyline on TNA television but was a real-life situation. The storyline is that team TNA vs. team GFW will fight for control of TNA on tonight’s episode of Impact Wrestling in a Lethal Lockdown match. The winning team will gain full ownership of TNA.
Pwinsider.com reports that TNA President Dixie Carter has bought out Jeff Jarrett, who was the founder of TNA, of his minority ownership of the company. Jeff Jarrett is 100% divested of the promotion. The Carters and Panda Energy now own TNA.
TNA and Jarrett made a deal where Jarrett would come into TNA, do an angle with his promotion (GFW), which would give his new promotion exposure and the assurances he can book TNA talents for upcoming GFW events in exchange of Jarrett giving up his ownership in TNA.
