Trivia

Before being signed to NXT, Paige and her mother (known as Sweet Saraya) made several trips to the United States to work independent shows for promotions like Shimmer in Chicago, where many of the current women of WWE and NXT have been discovered. See more »

Goofs

In the film, Paige is recruited to NXT in Orlando. But at the time Paige was actually signed, NXT didn't exist yet. WWE's developmental league was called FCW (Florida Championship Wrestling) and was based out of Tampa. NXT and the WWE performance center opened in Orlando well after Paige was first signed.

Quotes

Hutch: [Sees Paige returning to the performance center from Christmas] Can I help you?
Raya Knight: [Firmly] You didn't cut me and I didn't quit.

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 »

Heartwarming movie based on a true story
17 February 2019 | by itsactuallyamandaSee all my reviews

Fighting With My Family was for sure worth the hype. As a long time fan of Paige and the Knight family, I was very excited to see this film and it did not disappoint. Florence Pugh did an amazing job portraying Paige to the point that you would think they are twins. The story itself is very heartwarming and incredible. Fighting With My Family is for sure a must see.
