Quotes

[Raya and Zak follow Hutch out of the arena]
Raya Knight: You have to take my brother.
Hutch: Excuse me?
Raya Knight: No one deserves this more than Zak. Why didn't you pick him?
Hutch: 99% of the people don't get picked.
Raya Knight: He was running rings around those other guys!
Hutch: We're not looking for ring runners.
Raya Knight: No, wait! You have to explain why you didn't pick him.
Hutch: I don't have to explain anything. I wish you the best, son. But this is the end of the line for you.
Raya Knight: If he's not going, neither am I.

Crazy Credits

The scenes over the end credits come from the 2012 UK Channel 4 documentary 'The Wrestlers: Fighting With My Family'. This is supposedly the documentary The Rock saw that got him interested in producing a film about Paige's story. See more »

Alternate Versions

In order to obtain a PG-13 rating in the US, some swearing was edited out of the film. The Blu-ray included an R-rated 'director's cut' which restores the edits. See more »

Fun movie even if you aren't a wrestling fan.
24 February 2019 | by leopd12See all my reviews

I stopped watching WWF about 10 years or so ago, around the time the Rock and others were leaving...but I STILL loved this movie.

Fun coming of age story with a great amount of laughter, drama, and of course wrestling. Well paced with decent writing and all the actors do well in their roles. For wrestling fans and non fans alike. There's something for everyone to like.
