A Triple Threat....

Only a fool would make assumptions that a merger between TNA and Global Force Wrestling is an absolute guarantee. Even though my impression of the situation is that the wrestling landscape will remain a two promotion constant, a third promotion is NOT completely out of the question. I say we have a look at how this whole thing could look.

During the brand extension era when ECW was put into motion, WWE treated each show as three distinct entities. Granted, each show was under one banner during PPVs and in their best selling video game series, but each roster was distinct with its own champion. On top of all three separate rosters, TNA and Ring of Honor were also featured in PWI whenever a 5 Way yearly report was put out. You could look at it as a kind of marketplace where each roster was placed on equal footing in the court of public opinion.

Now that WWE has reverted back to its Attitude Era roots, combining the roster into one and dissolving ECW, the landscape is down to THREE. If PWI were to do another comparison editorial, it could be done in a Fatal Four Way format adding Global Force into the mix. How does the product stack up? If TNA and Global Force were to remain separate entities and keep partnerships with outside feds open and kicking, the cooperative value would be immense for BOTH shows and if each were televised on different networks, assuming TNA's home is as steadfast as it has been for the past 10 years, we'd be looking at some of the finest wrestling out there.

If Global Force is as big a deal as Jeff Jarrett is claiming, I believe there's more than enough room around the table for one more promotion as well as this site.
