By Anthony Caruso III on July 20, 2015 11:42 AM EST

Global Force Wrestling has announced that they will be traveling to the United Kingdom in October. This comes on the heels of its first TV taping at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas and its #GFWGrandSlamTour.

The wrestling company will be at the Grimsby Auditorium in Grimsby Lincolnshire on Oct. 28th, before traveling to Lynnsport and Leisure Park in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, on Oct. 30. Both owners Karen and Jeff Jarrett will appear as will former TNA heavyweight champion Nick Aldis (Magnus), his wife and legendary women’s champion Mickie James, and British wrestler Doug Williams.

“I’m thrilled to be heading to the UK to share the GFW brand with the incredible fans across the pond,” Jarrett said. “Since say one no fan base has inundated us with more requests to bring a show to them than those in the United Kingdom.

“What’s unique about this is we wanted to bring high-caliber shows to towns that haven’t previously had access to them, with most touring companies staying exclusively in major cities like London, Manchester and Glasgow. We decided to give new towns an opportunity to experience a great live wrestling event.”

Aldis, who recently made his GFW debut after leaving Impact Wrestling, is from King’s Lynn, so it will be a homecoming for him.

“I’m excited and proud to be part of GFW’s first UK shows,” he said. “It will be great to finally appear on a major show in my hometown. I hope the fans feel as excited as I do.”
