Oh Total Nonstop Action, or Impact Wrestling, or Global Force Wrestling, or Colin’s Funtime Wrestling Show (fingers crossed guys), you are doing it again. Instead of me talking about how great your Bound For Glory pay-per-view will be on November 5th from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada (call your local pay-per-view providers kids), and the awesome card that will be that night, I won’t be. Instead of the great talent-exchange program with promotions like AAA in Mexico, Border City Wrestling in Canada and Pro Wrestling NOAH in Japan, we won’t be talking about that either.

Instead we are talking about the firing of Jeff Jarrett from his own company for the 3rd time and the possibility of another re-branding with another name change.

Honestly, of the 3 firings that Jarrett has suffered at the hands of his own company, this one seems to be the most validated one. The incident that he has been fired over happened on August 26th at AAA’s TripleMania during their Copa TripleMania match. It’s sort of like a Royal Rumble type match, with people coming in every 90 seconds or so, sometimes 2, sometimes 3 people. Your only prize for winning it is a trophy. But when Jarrett came out for his entrance into the match, and I was watching this live, he stumbled down the steps, the steps were pretty steep, but it was AAA’s biggest show in 10 years, so they made a pretty extravagant entrance for the wrestlers, and nearly tripped over his own damn feet. When he got into the ring, he didn’t do much and didn’t ,look like the ol’ Double J. It was later determined that he showed up to the show under the influence of some sort.

Anthem, who oversees, along with Jeff Jarrett, Global Force Wrestling, rightfully fired Jarrett in my opinion. I just question the timing of it all. This happened in late August and was visible to anybody who watched the TripleMania show. Why not get rid of him then, when you know he isn’t even in the plans for Bound For Glory coming up in 2 months?

The biggest issue could actually be coming. Jarrett owns the Global Force wrestling name, so he’ll obviously take that with him and Anthem will have to find yet another name to make their promotion. On this week’s Impact on POPTV show, commentators have already been using Impact Wrestling whenever they could. This is because the shows have been taped since late-August and they go back and do commentary and re-do commentary wherever they see fit. Jarrett could also sue Anthem (another lawsuit involving TNA or Impact or, well whatever at this point?!?!) for wrongful termination. It’s all such a mess.

Yes, we will have a Bound For Glory predictions article on this site next week. No, we won’t know what the promotion will be called at that point.

Who could have thought that a wrestling promotion could be run worse without having Dixie Carter around.
