New Trailer For 'Fighting With My Family' Film About WWE's Paige

The trailer for forthcoming comedy Fighting With My Family has just dropped, and fans are already saying they can't wait to see it when it hits cinemas next February.

The film tells the story of WWE professional wrestler and two-time Divas champ Paige, whose real name is Saraya-Jade Bevis.

Based on the Channel 4 British documentary The Wrestlers: Fighting With My Family, it follows Paige's family as they work through the sbling rivalry that crops up when she and her brother Zak audition for roles in WWE.


Written and directed by Stephen Merchant, Fighting With My Family was also executive produced by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

Alongside Florence Pugh as Paige, other cast members include Jack Lowden, Nick Frost, Lena Headey and Vince Vaughan.

Johnson, who also appears in the film, tweeted the trailer, writing: "In 2012 I watched a documentary about a young, unknown British female pro wrestler & her wonderfully crazy family. I loved it! It was a story that my @SevenBucksProd had to tell. That girl @RealPaigeWWE would go on to help redefine @WWE women's wrestling."



Many people also tweeted to say they couldn't wait to see the film - even if they weren't into wrestling.

One person wrote: "Can't wait. Looks legit good. Can't wait to hear Paige's story."

Someone else said: "I thought this was going to be another straight to dvd quality movie, but this looks legit. Can't wait!"

Another commented: "Never been remotely in to wrestling but this looks brilliant!"


A fourth added: "Oh come on February why you are 3 months far, come soon. Can't wait to see this incredible journey of Paige. It's amazing trailer. One thing for sure @Zelina_VegaWWE 's cameo as AJ Lee will be amazing."

And someone even said it was 'legit the best commercial I have ever seen', which is a bold statement if ever there was one.


Paige retired from wrestling at the beginning of this year, telling fans: "Unfortunately due to neck injuries I can no longer perform as an in-ring competitor. This is one of the hardest things I'll ever have to say in my entire career."

Thanking 'every single female superstar' in the WWE, she added: "We have all built this division to be huge - into something we didn't imagine it could ever be."

The trailer states that Fighting With My Family will be heading our way at some point in February.
