Two brothers and rivals one a villain or "heel" in professional wrestling the other a hero or "face" play out scripted matches as they war over their late father's wrestling promotion and vie for national attention in small town Georgia.
First two episode descriptions:
EP 1: Jack Spade is a husband, a father, and the owner of the Duffy Wrestling League. While Jack controls everything that goes on inside of his wrestling ring, outside the ropes, he’s ﬁghting to balance his family life, ﬁnancial pressures, rival wrestling promotions, and an ex-family friend who’s come to poach the DWL’s newest star, and Jack’s younger brother, Ace Spade. Jack will have to decide what’s best for the DWL, but what’s good for the league usually comes with collateral damage.
EP 2: As the wrestlers at the DWL worry about the fallout from the previous show, Jack struggles with what direction to take the narrative and the league, especially after an enticing offer from the FWD’s Charlie Gully. After Ace’s humiliating breakdown in the ring, he goes into a tailspin and disappears, causing Jack and Crystal to scour Duffy before Ace does anything too regrettable.
