Incredible (from a non-wrestling fan)
I have never watched a wrestling match in my life but this show is incredible. A family drama centred around a family-owned wrestling show. It's fascinating to see the characters script out their own matches, argue over who will be the "heel" (basically the panto villain) and you get insights into their personal lives as well. Honestly this show deserves to be seen by far more people than would probably watch it. If you like hard-hitting dramas like The Wire, Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, Sopranos etc., you need to give this one a shot. Don't be put off by the subject matter, it's a really intricate and thoughtful show which touches on depression, suicide and other family issues. Similarly, if you are a wrestling fan, I'm sure you'll enjoy this look behind the kayfabe!

Loved it!
As wrestling fan loved it hope people get behind this show very well done first episode think there's a lot of great stuff behind the camera in wrestlers actual lives that people don't know about which the movie The wrestler demonstrated and now this show has done great job so far hopefully continue. We'll acted also by everyone very impressed by the dude from vikings can't wait for more.

Borefest
Seem to be the odd one out here but found this series to be a bit boring. I thought this series would be an adaptation of Vince McMahon or of one of the companies he eventually destroyed but whereas it is similar to real-life events it feels like a lite version.
I found parts of the story to be unbelievable and even laughable in moments and in my opinion, it could have been told better.

Tremendous, gritty, realistic, amazing TV!!!
This is, without doubt, the best TV show out there at the current time. It has everything a wrestling fan could wish for, guest appearances from 'retired superstars' and quite simply a fantastic edge-of-your-seat storyline..... If this gets cancelled I'm done!! It's fantastic, please, please, please give it some legs!

Not a wrestling fan? Doesn't matter
I am not a wrestling fan at all, haven't been since I was probably 8 but I love the cast that I recognised in other shows, so I thought why not? I'm so glad I did I am really enjoying the characters because they feel real. not over the top stereotypes or cliches just like real people with real feelings and issues. They deal with those feelings and emotions etc without making the plot like a forced drama or anything. anyway enough rambling...just watch it

Slow moving but good
A small town wrestling league + 2 brothers and their issues = good.
