Former WWE Intercontinental Champion John Hennigan (John Morrison, Johnny Mundo) is set to make his GFW debut at the upcoming Impact live events in the New York Tri-state area. Hennigan currently holds the AAA Mega Title, the AAA Latin American Title and the AAA World Cruiserweight Title. This will be his first match for any brand under TNA or GFW since leaving WWE in 2011.
The live events will take place on August 4th in Long Island, August 5th in Staten Island and August 6th in Bridgeport, CT.
If Drago and El Hijo de Fantasma's debuts at Slammiversary (and subsequent use through the tapings that took place following it) aren't proof positive enough of the working relationship between the two companies, this should drive that fact home emphatically. Coming in for a live event versus a television taping is a little odd, but it can probably be explained away by being able to talk up GFW live events (which Jarrett has said he wants to do more of in the future, including touring PPVs) as a means to boost future ticket sales.
Plus, I'd imagine Mundo, like Drago and de Fantasma, will be a part of the next set of tapings anyway. This gives fans the opportunity to see him in a GFW ring now without having to wait for those tapings to come around since they won't be taking place until later this summer.
