Global Force Wrestling: A Fresh Start
Prior to television/internet streaming, the organization holds an event to build some exposure for the coming debut and sell some DVDs/online subscriptions...the event is as follows
GFW Bring It In With A Bang!
- Jarrett defeats Burke via Figure Four submission to advance in the tournament
- Carlito defeats DiBiase Jr via Back Cracker into a pin to advance in the tournament
- Hero defeats Sabin via Rolling Elbow Smash into a pin to advance in the tournament
- Shamrock defeats Masters via Anklelock submission to advance in the tournament
Hype for Steiners vs. KES (Scott Steiner says some crazy stuff, KES play the heels)
- Devitt defeats Nese and O'Reilly via Bloody Sunday on O'Reilly into a pin
- Cabana defeats Delirious via Colt .45 into a pin
Cabana follows up the match saying he is sick of people who don't take wrestling seriously. He points to the man he just defeated as a small example then rips into what he calls the "irresponsible hardcore buffoons" who think cutting each other open for a living is the same a being a wrestler. He says not a single one of these buffoons could stand toe to toe with a real wrestler and he defies any one of them to prove him wrong. Cue Masada coming out, the two piss pounding each other, and the referees having to break it up.
Carlito cuts a promo saying its good to be back on top and he doesn't care if he has to go through the owner of the company to stay there. Jarrett says Carlito may have what it takes outside of the ring but in the ring Jarrett is going to make an example out of him.
- Jarrett defeats Carlito via The Stroke into a pin
Jarrett proceeds to beat the living hell out of Carlito then puts the call out to both Shamrock and Hero because whoever wins is in for one bad night on their tv debut
- Hero defeats Shamrock via Rivera Cloverleaf submission
Hero grabs the mic and says "Jeff Jarrett...enough said" while looking down at the defeated Shamrock.
Jarrett is back again, this time to make a presentation to Minoru Suzuki for his legendary career and for helping GFW grow a worldwide appeal. A bunch of people come out to shake Suzuki's hand but one person, Johnny Gargano, seems a bit too enthusiastic. When they tell Gargano to leave he says he just wants to say something to Suzuki..."Suzuki, you were a childhood hero of mine, you are the greatest star I've ever seen from MMA to wrestling and I...I think I can beat you." Everyone is shocked, Jarrett gets pissed and demands Gargano leave, apologizing to Suzuki who doesn't seem to know how to take such a bold challenge.
- KES defeat the Steiner Brothers via Running Powerslam by Smith on Rick Steiner into a pin (after a fair bit of cheating)
As the KES stand tall (albeit while running from the ring), the announcers hype the television debut, with DDP saying he knows Jarrett can be absolutely cut-throat in the ring but he hasn't seen a young talent as good as Chris Hero in a very long time.
A lot of hype is built for the title match, as well as announcing other matches on the first card to get people to tune in. A hype video based on the DVD show is spread around the internet to catch people up on what to expect. A partnership with SHIMMER is also announced prior to the show to bring REAL women's wrestling to the mainstream.

After the match, Hoyt destroys Spike then he and Smith hit the Killer Bomb on both Spike and the big jobber to get some heat, finally Tommy Dreamer comes out with a microphone and gets in the ring "You two think you're pretty tough picking on guys half...well, twice...well, you get what I'm trying to say!" Dreamer challenges the KES to a match next week and says he'll bring his own partner.
