AEW: Fight Forever for Xbox Series X, as a new contender, enters the scene with laudable audacity, adopting an arcade design reminiscent of earlier eras while offering an easy pick-up-and-play experience. However, it falls short in several critical areas, including a lack of genre-standard features, a mediocre single-player campaign, and a host of mechanical glitches, preventing it from truly challenging the reigning champion.

I watched all eight episodes of Heels in five days on Starz because it’s that damn good. Heels is a story about the men and women who chase their dreams in the world of small-town pro wrestling. Set in a close-knit Georgia community, it follows a family-owned wrestling promotion as two brothers, and rivals, war over their late father’s legacy. In the ring, somebody must play the good guy and somebody must play their nemesis, the heel. But in the real world, those characters can be hard to live up to — or hard to leave behind.
