“Based on a true story / A comedy about a family that fights a little differently”

Copyrighted, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM)

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY is a heartwarming comedy based on the incredible true story of WWE Superstar Paige™. Born into a tight-knit wrestling family, Paige and her brother Zak are ecstatic when they get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try out for WWE. But when only Paige earns a spot in the competitive training program, she must leave her family and face this new, cut-throat world alone. Paige's journey pushes her to dig deep, fight for her family, and ultimately prove to the world that what makes her different is the very thing that can make her a star.

The film is inspired by the Channel 4 British documentary ‘The Wrestlers: Fighting with My Family’ and tells the story of 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.”

Based on the documentary “The Wrestlers: Fighting with My Family” (2012) about the WWE career of professional wrestler Paige™ (Saraya-Jade Bevis)
