As noted earlier on the site, Jeff Jarrett announced at today’s press conference in Las Vegas that former UFC fighter Chael Sonnen would be joining the promotion as an expert analyst.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Jeff Jarrett is looking for a play-by-play announcer to join Sonnen on commentary. The lead candidate is Jim Ross. Ross did work for GFW at the Wrestle Kingdom 9 event in January.
Ross seems to be in a good spot because he has also been in talks with WWE to do projects with them. I would assume that some of those projects would include content for the WWE Network.
