Heels is a new TV series about two brothers (played by Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig) who co-own a minor wrestling promotion while at each other's throats (both figuratively and literally). It looks dumb, but I'm going to watch it because it's the right kind of dumb.

Eight episodes, starts August 15th.

Between Jack and Ace, I believe that Jack had more to gain by shooting in the match. It's the old 'crabs in a bucket' idea - nobody should get so successful that they move on to the big leagues and abandon Duffy. If Ace shot on Jack, he'd look unprofessional and wouldn't get the big call up.

(in pro wrestling parlance, 'to shoot' is to go off-script either in the ring or in a promo and do something real)

As a person who watches wrestling, this show does a good job explaining to the audience basic concepts without it being too clunky. What's weird is how this show somehow takes place in a world where local, 'territorial' wrestling still exists whilst WWE exists and WCW existed.
