Professional wrestling video games have been primarily dominated by the WWE 2K franchise for nearly a decade. 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.

Kenny Omega’s arrival in IMPACT sent shockwaves all through the wrestling world. Omega made his in-ring debut at Hard To Kill as the team of him and The Good Brothers faced the trio of Rich Swann, Moose and Chris Sabin. Despite an impressive fight from the IMPACT trio, Omega pinned Swann and set in motion a historic title match. Swann would survive a difficult challenge against Moose at Sacrifice before an even bigger challenge was coming. At Rebellion in April, the IMPACT World Champion Rich Swann would face the AEW World Champion Kenny Omega in a Title vs. Title match.
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. Read on for my thoughts on this compelling new drama.
