This F*cking Company, Man
We already brought you the news this week that Eric Young had to disappoint a fan who thought he was coming back to the ol' Impact Zone, due to the fact that his face is plastered all over this promo for GFW's "Amped" series.
One of Fightful's newest additions, Jeremy Lambert, explained thusly:
GFW released Part 2 of their Amped Anthology series this past weekend. Part 1 aired in August and Part 3 is scheduled to air sometime in October. The four-part series, which was filmed back in mid-2015 in Las Vegas, includes 16 one-hour episodes featuring current WWE talents such as Young, Bobby Roode, TJ Perkins, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Shelton Benjamin, and the Singh Brothers.
They're deliberately trying to get people to buy their 3-year-old pre-taped pay-per-view by advertising guys who are now currently under contract to WWE.
AND THAT'S NOT ALL THEY'RE DOING.
Check this out.
Check out what this sad, sad company is doing now -- albeit by an apparent accident.
They had their announcers go back and re-record the commentary, and say that Bobby Roode jumped from NXT to make a special appearance at Amped.
"Of course, you've seen Bobby Roode everywhere. He is a champion in NXT, has made the jump, Bobby Roode, the Glorious One that they call him, is everywhere, (including) right here at Global Force Wrestling."
In an update, commentator Cyrus Fees cleared the air, saying that he was referring to Roode's move to WWE's Smackdown Live from NXT. Although "WWE main roster" was never mentioned, so it seems to be a gaffe.
