Trivia

Saraya-jade-Bevis real life brother Zak appears in the film as a gang lieutenant See more »

Goofs

Zak is seen as a young child holding a cardboard version of the WWE championship, in what appears to be 2000 from the clip he's watching. However the belt he creates is the belt introduced in 2005. You can see from the clip he's watching The Rock is holding a totally different belt (the Attitude Era World Title belt used between 1998 - 2002). See more »

Quotes

[Raya and Zak follow Hutch out of the arena]
Raya Knight: You have to take my brother.
Hutch: Excuse me?
Raya Knight: No one deserves this more than Zak. Why didn't you pick him?
Hutch: 99% of the people don't get picked.
Raya Knight: He was running rings around those other guys!
Hutch: We're not looking for ring runners.
Raya Knight: No, wait! You have to explain why you didn't pick him.
Hutch: I don't have to explain anything. I wish you the best, son. But this is the end of the line for you.
Raya Knight: If he's not going, neither am I.

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.
