Starz wrestling drama, starring Arrow fame Stephen Amell and Vikings star Alexander Ludwig in lead roles, is less than a month away from its premiere. Drama lovers got a glimpse of it through the newly released trailer that introduces the central characters as two siblings named Jack and Ace Spade.

They are not just rivals in-ring, but the siblings have lots of disagreements in real life also.
