Global Force Wrestling (GFW) is a privately held American professional wrestling promotion based in Nashville, Tennessee and founded by Anthem Sports & Entertainment in 2017. It is the second-largest professional wrestling promotion in the United States after WWE, and is controlled as a subsidiary of the New York and Toronto-based integrated media organization Anthem Sports & Entertainment.

After the promotion was formed by Anthem at the beginning of 2017 out of the old Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, it became known simply as Impact Wrestling, after its main television series, until later that year when it acquired the original Global Force Wrestling, also founded by Jeff Jarrett, and assumed the GFW name.

In September 2017 just nine months after formation GFW began losing funds very quickly this was when they were bought out by the WWE, with them allowing GFW to continue operating under WWE ownership. GFW became the third wrestling company to continue running after being bought out by the WWE after Lucha Underground and Ring of Honor.
