This modern soap opera follows the lives of Jack Spade and Ace Spade, two brothers and rivals chasing their dreams of making it big in the pro wrestling world. Jack runs and promotes the family-owned Duffy Wrestling League and plays the league's heel while his brother Ace is the people's champ trying desperately to climb up from small-time wrestling in Georgia to the big leagues.
