GFW's Network is Live, Alberto Returning Soon, Rosemary Cleared
Wednesday, September 13, 2017
As promised, Global Force Wrestling has officially launched their very own 24/7 OTT streaming service. The company announced their intention to launch the Global Wrestling Network one week ago, and it briefly went live last night online. The site featured Josh Matthews confirming that the new service costs $5.99 per month, and it includes discounts on merchandise and pay-per-views, content from promotions partnered with GFW (which have yet to be added,) as well as all material from GFW/Impact Wrestling/TNA Wrestling. While the service is still "coming soon" for services such as Roku and Fire TV, the Global Wrestling Network is currently available via Android and iOS stores.

Contrary to some earlier rumors, it does not look like Alberto El Patron is done with Global Force Wrestling after all. Multiple sources took part in the latest Global Force Wrestling conference call featuring Scott D'Amore, Sonjay Dutt, and John Gaburick. Alberto El Patron was suspended from GFW earlier this year due to an incident involving accused domestic violence with his girlfriend Paige at an airport in Orlando. Alberto has since been cleared from the investigation, but he remains suspended and he had the GFW title stripped from him recently. When asked about Patron's status, Gaburick stated: “We have plans for Alberto, we’re excited that he’s gonna be coming back at Bound For Glory.” This seems to confirm that Patron will be back in time for the big pay-per-view in November.
More information came out of the conference call, and it appears that GFW roster member Rosemary has been cleared to return to the ring. Rosemary garnered a ton of attention when she was unknowingly put into a legitimate armbar by Sexy Star during AAA's Triplemania show. Rosemary was seriously hurt by Star, but Sonjay Dutt confirmed that Rosemary has been cleared by doctors to compete again. He also stated that they do not plan on featuring the events of the aforementioned Triplemania match going forward, and he assured everyone that the relationship between AAA and GFW is still very strong.
