Saw the 5 episodes out currently. Boy, they really need to start making one of the Spade brothers more likeable already; Ace is nigh irredeemable at the moment and Jack is still an arrogant despot in and out of the ring.

Also, what's with the treatment of women in wrestling on this show? Even in some backyard promotion in the middle of bumfuck nowhere you'd see female wrestlers doing cool poo poo--this isn't the '80s/'90s/'00s anymore.

Six episodes in and I think I'm done with this show.

Its anachronistic depiction of women in wrestling and its callous mistreatment of Crystal combined with its empathetic treatment of garbage rear end dudes like the Spade brothers is some weird enabling of toxic masculinity, man.

Not forgetting aside from blaming Crystal for Ace's behaviour, the show also revealed Willie is to be blamed for Wild Bill being a piece of poo poo. Lmao wtf is this show.

Lol I tried continuing with episode 7 and lol, the villainous wrestling promotion on this show is the one that wants to treat women better and Crystal is shown grovelling at Jack about how wrong she was and how great it was that Jack gave her the opportunity.
