Global Force Wrestling will hit the road for its first official talent search and seminar, which will occur on Sunday, June 1 in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
GFW CEO and founder Jeff Jarrett knows well the great tradition of pro wrestling in Canada and the number of top stars the country has produced. He and Owen Hart of the legendary Hart Family were WWE tag team champions, and several Canadian stars made names for themselves while in Jarrett’s TNA promotion.
The seminar also will reunite Jarrett with renowned pro wrestling trainer Scott D’Amore, who will help conduct the event at the North American Sports and Hobby Expo inside the WFCU Centre. D’Amore brought Team Canada to TNA, and he also trained such current indie wrestling superstars as Chris Sabin, Alex Shelley, Petey Williams, Rhino and Tyson Dux.
“Professional wrestling is part of the DNA of Canada,” Jarrett said in a release. “It felt like a natural not only to have our first official talent search there but to have it under the tutelage of Scott D’Amore, a longtime friend and as knowledgeable as anyone when it comes to discovering and fostering talent.
“Coupled with our partnership with Mexico’s AAA promotion, this is another key step in establishing the reach of Global Force Wrestling.”
Jarrett and D’Amore will evaluate the wrestlers in attendance as they engage in brief matches and cut promos.
“It’s an honor to have Global Force Wrestling bring its first talent search to my hometown,” D’Amore said. “Jeff Jarrett is a third-generation promoter, and he knows what he wants. He’s going to have high expectations. I know he will be relentless in his pursuit in finding the best undiscovered talent in the world.”
