Taking to Twitter, Dwayne Johnson dropped the trailer for the biopic about WWE Superstar Paige in Fighting With My Family.

Paige, whose real name is Saraya Bevis, comes from a family rooted in professional wrestling. Born in Norwich, England to two professional wrestlers, she was taught technique and honed her skills at a very early age. She began wrestling professionally at the age of 13.

Fighting With My Family is a humorous look at the life and wrestling development of Paige and her older brother Zak. As wrestling fans already know, Paige was quickly brought into the WWE’s developmental training program while her brother is left behind.  Her struggles of success and heartbreak come through in this two-minute trailer, which leaves the audience wanting to know more about the Bevis/Knight family.

The film is written and directed by award-winning British comedian Stephen Merchant, who based the film on a 2012 documentary about the Bevis family that aired on British public television station Channel 4. Merchant will appear in the movie, as well as former WWE Superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who is an executive producer.

Florence Pugh (Outlaw King, Little Women) portrays Paige and Jack Lowden (Mary Queen of Scots) plays her brother Zak.  Pugh’s stunts were performed by current Impact Wrestling star and 2017 Mae Young Classic contestant Tessa Blanchard.  Vince Vaughn plays WWE talent scout Hutch, and current WWE Superstar Zelina Vega (whose real name is Thea Trinidad) plays now-former WWE Superstar AJ Lee.

Fighting With My Family is produced by WWE Studios as it set to be released in theaters in February 2019.

As a professional wrestling fan, are you excited to get a docu-comedy about current talent?
