Goofs

AJ Lee did not wear a sexy spangly outfit to the ring. She wore black/pink tight shorts and a black t-shirt with a rib cage design on it.

Tamina came to the ring that night with AJ Lee, but was left out of the movie. See more »

Quotes

Zak Knight: I didn't get her up the duff. It's known as an unplanned pregnancy.
Ricky Knight: All pregnancies are unplanned, son.

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 »

Made me laugh
21 February 2019 | by nathanmansonSee all my reviews

The film was hilarious and it made me laugh constantly, I'm not familiar with the true story so I can't talk about that but I went to the cinema to watch a film that would make me laugh and it did just that.
