This heartwarming underdog story brings the life of WWE superstar Paige to the big screen. Paige and her brother Zak are the children of a British wrestling family. All they want in life is to compete as part of the WWE. The starry-eyed young talents get a chance to try out, but only Paige makes the cut. Can she command the spotlight and stay true to her dream without the immediate support of friends or family? She might — with help from The Rock, played by none other than Dwayne Johnson himself.
This true to life comedy comes from celebrated director/writer/producer Stephen Merchant. Florence Pugh captures Paige’s heart and determination as Fighting With My Family celebrates the unique personality and tenacity that ultimately carried her to the top of her game.

- Scenes for this movie were shot in the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California after WWE Monday Night RAW on March 20, 2017. The scene included a re-creation of a match between Paige (Saraya-Jade Bevis) and A.J. Lee (A.J. Mendez).
- Everything in the movie regarding Paige's journey to the WWE takes place between 2010 and 2014, but the WWE logo shown is the modern straight lined logo that was introduced when the WWE Network went on the air in February 2014, but was not made the official logo of the company until after SummerSlam that same year. This whole time, they should've been showing the "scratch" logo that was the official logo from 2003 until then.
- The Rock: Paige, I myself have come from a wrestling family too. I know exactly what it means to you. But don't worry about being the next me. Be the first you.

Saw an early screening. Really funny movie created by Stephen Merchant, one of the creators of The Office. Funny moments throughout mixed with some emotional pieces as well. WWE fans will love it, and anyone else will definitely enjoy too.
Even if you don’t watch wrestling you’ll still love this movie!
Sheer force of personality is the main ingredient of any great sports movie, and Pugh has enough of it to pull the story along. But this is a star performance that deserved an equally dazzling script.
The film benefits from Pugh’s charismatic performance and writer-director Stephen Merchant’s cheery mixture of crowd-pleasing sentiment, wry laughs and genuine sweetness.
Fighting With My Family reminds us several times that the sport is as much about charismatic storytelling as it is about skill. Judged by that standard, the film is far from belt-worthy.
