Trivia

Dwayne Johnson was filming Furious 6 (2013) in the UK when he discovered this documentary on TV in his hotel room about a crazy English family of wrestlers. The 'underdog' aspect of it instantly appealed to him, prompting him to contact British writer Stephen Merchant about developing the story into a feature-length biopic. Writer-director Merchant, who also plays Hugh in the film, is actually 2" taller than 'The Rock' with whom he'd earlier co-starred in Tooth Fairy (2010). See more »

Watch the documentary instead
30 January 2019 | by jesse-jmartSee all my reviews

As a movie, without knowing the true story of the Knights, it would be easy to enjoy this movie. However, if you are a fan of Paige, or the Knight family at all, you will quickly start to see fictionalized moments, exaggerations and inaccuracies. Now of course, it's going to pump in the Hollywood magic to try and help the movie. The Rock is throughout the movie, and while he wasn't truly vital to Paige's career, his scenes are fun. The actors do an amazing job with their roles, and have very comedic chemistry. This movie is witty and charming but is all over the place. I truly believe the documentary this movie is based on would be a better fit, but you'll have to do your homework finding out about Paige's time in WWE. This movie rushes through it.
