The latest episode of Global Force Wrestling witnessed some major developments. A new Global Force Wrestling Champion was crowned via a Gauntlet for Gold match, while the show also saw the debut of a former WWE Superstar. The invasion storyline featuring American Top Team also garnered attention. Here are the results from the latest episode.

Opening Segments

The show opened with a recap of Destination X. Jeff Jarrett welcomed back American Top Team despite what went down last week. Jim Cornette meanwhile talked to the GFW roster and mentioned that no one will get an easy outing in the Gauntlet for Gold match which will serve as the main event of the show.

OVE vs. The Heat Seekers

The match was designed to showcase Jake and Dave Christ, who were collectively introduced as OVE. Though it wasn’t a quick squash, the match gave plenty of offence to the new team and the Heat Seekers were mostly sidelined. The match ended with Dave and Jake landing dual low and high kicks to get the pin.

Result: OVE wins via pinfall
