Former wrestler Ricky and his wife Julia make a living performing with their children Saraya and Zak. When brother and sister get the chance to audition for WWE, they learn that becoming a WWE Superstar demands more than they ever imagined possible.
In the film, Paige gives a speech in the ring after defeating AJ Lee for the WWE Divas' Championship. This did not happen in the actual match, where Paige ran off with the belt while a shocked Lee stared at her from the ring. In addition, Tamina Snuka, who was in Lee's corner during the match, does not appear in the film. See more »
[Saraya and Zak bump into The Rock backstage]
Sorry about that.
Dick me dead, bury me pregnant.
[the Rock turns around]
That's a good pick-up line.
[offering a handshake]
Zak Zodiac, mate.
[shakes Zak's hand]
What's up, Zak?
What an honor to meet you, mate.
Oh, thanks, Zak.
Yeah. Yeah, Zak, Zak. Yeah.

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 »
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 »
Typical feel good film, made in the best of British style
REVIEW - FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY
At first glance this film is a very British film and watching it I thought would American film goers even go to see it because it is very British, the humour, the accents, the houses but at the end of the film I actually realised the most important thing, something that isn't even being used for the promotion of this feel good film, it's actually a true story!
Yes an underdog from Norwich did win the Diva WWE championship belt, not once but twice!
Typical feel good film, made in the best of British style and Dwayne The Rock Johnson producing!
I will admit I was pleasantly surprised by this film and actually laughed out loud at a few of the British jokes included, because of this I now will have to eat my words and take back what I said at the start of this review, yes this appeals to British film goers and yes it will certainly appeal to American film goers also, good call Steven Merchant
