WWE Paige squared ring fighting days might be over thanks to injury, In March you can see how she rose from her indy days to WWE Diva with Fighting With My Family.
Some of you may know The Peoples Movies name is inspired by the great one Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. But did you know he was involved in Paige’s first steps into WWE? So it’s no surprise he’s now involved in the film version of Paige’s story.
Florence Pugh stars as Saraya-Jade Bevis (Paige’s real name) who is the daughter of the family of wrestlers who tour the UK indie Wrestling network. Saraya spotted by The Great One The Rock when he watched Channel 4 documentary on the Bevis family. Resulting in Saraya and her Brother getting auditions at the WWE!
Lionsgate Films has released a second UK Trailer, highlights the film is going to be a fun, emotive maybe uplifting film. Our only concern, does the trailer reveal too much?
The film is inspired by the Channel 4 documentary The Wrestlers: Fighting With My Family and tells the story of a reformed gangster and former wrestler Ricky, his wife Julia, daughter Saraya and son Zak who make a living performing in tiny venues across the country. Ricky and Julia want a better life for their children and when brother and sister get the chance to audition for WWE, it seems the family dream is coming true and all their troubles will be solved. However, Saraya and Zak are about to learn that becoming a WWE Superstar demands more than they ever imagined possible as athletes and siblings. Wrestling has always kept this family together but now it could tear them apart.
The film will also star Lena Headey, Nick Frost and Jack Lowden with Vince Vaughn, Stephen Merchant.
Fighting With My Family will arrive in the UK and Ireland from Friday 1st March 2019.
