    Officially they have purchased GFW, but it's felt like that for months now especially when they were setting up feuds and having Impact talent win belts from GFW like Sienna.

    Yeah, this is hardly news. Considering the last few weeks of Impact, this is pretty much what we all knew was going down.

    One wonders what the going price for GFW was. My guess? Jeff Jarrett finally got him his ham sandwich.

    I have GFW on my facebook feed for some reason, anyway every time they post something it gets legit 2 likes, and no comments. I'm guessing buying GFW just means Jeff Jarrett has a secured job.

    Literally they didn't buy anything. I bet they didn't pay any money. My bet is that Jeff Jarrett suggested the GFW name because everyone knew they had to rebrand. I bet GFW wasn't even trademarked and Anthem just trademarked it for fifty bucks. Then he publicized it as a "buyout" or "merger" to feed his ego.

    If you go to their site now the branding is so fucking confusing. They still have impact, but added GFW in some places. It's a cluster.

    Yeah I've been checking it it, because I really do think the rebranding is important and I watch he show here and there, but you're right. Also, their site sucks overall. Who did it? I mean you don't even have to be skilled at building sites these days. You can do it all with GoDaddy and their templates, but whatever.
