Fighting with My Family is a comedy-drama film based on the 2012 documentary The Wrestlers: Fighting with My Family, directed by Max Fisher, telling the story of WWE wrestler Paige. It was directed and written by Stephen Merchant, with Dwayne Johnson executive producing and also appearing in the film.


The Bevis family, who all are professional wrestlers, try to work through the issues that arise when daughter Saraya (who will be known as "Paige") receives a contract to work with WWE.



The project was announced on February 7, 2017, when Dwayne Johnson and Stephen Merchant teamed with WWE Studios to produce a film based off the life of Saraya "Paige" Bevis, a wrestler currently with WWE. Merchant will write and direct, with Johnson appearing in the film and executive producing. Florence Pugh was cast as Saraya. The next day, Johnson announced that Lena Headey and Nick Frost were cast as Saraya's parents, with Deadline disclosing that Jack Lowden was cast as Saraya's older brother Zack. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer acquired the distribution rights on February 10. On February 14, Johnson announced that Vince Vaughn had been cast and that filming would commence the following day. Scenes were filmed before and after WWE Raw on February 20, and WWE SmackDown and 205 Live on February 21. Filming also took place around Norwich with locations around the city as Mousehold Heath and Norwich Market being used on April 3–4. Scenes were also filmed in March 2017 in the Harman's Water district of Bracknell, Berks outside of the Newton Pipin pub. Nick Frost was filming along with Jack Lowden.


Fighting with My Family was released on January 28, 2019 (Sundance), February 22, 2019 (United States) and February 27, 2019 (United Kingdom).
