Dwayne Johnson unveiled the official poster for Fighting with My Family on social media this morning. Additionally, the studio has released some new stills from the upcoming movie about WWE superstar Paige’s life. The latest promotional material comes after the first trailer was released last month, showcasing the comedic aspect of the story. Johnson serves as a producer on the project, which was in development for quite a bit before production officially started.
The Fighting With My Family poster features Paige, played by Florence Pugh, front and center with Dwayne Johnson by her side. As for the first photo, it features young Paige holding her replica Divas Championship Belt in her room, as she dreams about breaking into the pro wrestling world. The second photos shows Paige in the ring with her brother Zak (played by Jack Lowden) as they try out for the WWE. Johnson had this to say about the movie.
“Our new poster for our lil’ crazy comedy based on the true life story of WWE’s Paige & her wrestling family. An honor for me to play a small part in Paige’s career defining moment, as well as bringing her family’s story to the big screen.”
Fighting With My Family is a comedy based on the crazy true story of WWE superstar Paige. She was born into a tight-knit wrestling family (both her parents were wrestlers). The story picks up when Paige and her brother Zak get the once-in-a-lifetime shot to try out for WWE. However, only Paige earns a spot in the competitive training program, and she must leave her family and face the new, cut-throat world of pro wrestling alone. While the story is being advertised as a comedy, it promises to dig deep into Paige’s world through the emotional highs and lows.
It’s unclear if the real-life Paige will make an appearance in Fighting With My Family, but WWE fans are hoping that she’ll make at least a small cameo when the movie hits theaters early next year. Paige, aka Saraya-Jade Bevis, has had a roller coaster of a career and she’s only 26-years old. She started in the WWE when she was only 21-years old and became the youngest woman to win the Divas Championship.
Fighting With My Family hits theaters on February 14th, 2019 and it will focus on Paige’s early life and her introduction into the WWE. It’s not believed that it will go into the more controversial aspects of her career and recent retirement from the ring due to injury. With that being said, Dwayne Johnson is excited to get the movie out and in front of fans, giving them a look into the origin story of Paige, who became one of the WWE’s biggest superstars.
