Our friend Raj Giri of WrestlingInc.com is reporting that Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling has come to terms with Matt Striker to do commentary with Jim Ross for New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 9 pay-per-view on January 4th, 2015.

Striker is a former WWE announcer and currently works for Lucha Underground.

There had been talks with Mike Tenay in hopes of getting him to call the show with JR, but TNA was reportedly not interested in sending Tenay to work for Jeff Jarrett’s new promotion.

There were also talks with Mauro Ranallo, Ron Neimi, and former WWE tag team champion Renee Dupree, who lives in Japan.
