Trivia

During filming of the WWE wrestling scenes between Paige and A.J. Lee, fans kept chanting the name of "C.M. Punk" (A.J.'s real-life husband, who was fired from WWE on less-than-amicable terms in 2014). In response to the chants, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson called Punk on his phone from the middle of the ring, and left a voicemail, telling Punk that fifteen thousand fans were chanting his name at the Staples Center. Backstage, WWE Producer Paul Levesque was said to be seething at Punk's non-pre-approved mention, reportedly telling audio technicians, "Cut his mike, cut his mike. Doesn't he realize we're in a lawsuit with this guy?" A visibly annoyed Rock was then heard telling a crew member at ringside, "Tell them, they better not cut my mike." Soon afterwards, Levesque and Vince McMahon sent out a referee to tell The Rock to stop making C.M. Punk references, even though this was taking place after Monday Night RAW had gone off the air. Dwayne later said of the incident, "I work off instinct, always listen to the people, and try to give them something special. Huge positive feedback from the fans. Fun night." See more »

Got a chance to see this film at an early screening and I have to say it is one of the best funniest, heartwarming movie of 2019.
