Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will star in the wrestling movie based on a true story of WWE’s standout Paige


Well isn’t this convenient for The Rock, combination of acting and the sport that made him what he is – WWE. Dwayne is apparently going to be one of the actors in the movie based on a true story of WWE star Paige.

“Fighting With My Family” takes inspiration from the Channel 4, 2012 documentary that had the same name and it followed the professional British wrestling family – Bevis. If you are wondering how The Rock found out about this, well it happened accidentally when he “stumbled across the documentary on a local UK channel” while he stayed at one hotel in London back in 2012.

Dwayne gave a statement to the THR saying “Not only was I intrigued by this loving and wild family, but I also felt it’s the kind of narrative that would make an amazing movie.” The Rock also continued and said that “The Knights’ journey is a universal one that all families are familiar with. I relate to Saraya and her wrestling family on such a personal level and it means so much that I can help tell their story.”

The family that Dwayne is mentioning is consisting of a father and reformed gangster Ian Bevis AKA “Rowdy” Ricky Knight, then there is mother Julia AKA Sweet Saraya, sons Roy Bevis and Zac Zodiac (who form the tag-team the UK Hooligans), and daughter Saraya AKA Britani Knight. The documentary that was previously mentioned had the intention to show just how the family made ends meet while they were a part of not-very-lucrative professional UK wrestling circuit, and that was all before daughter Saraya manage to reach the big leagues by landing a WWE contract. Now she is known as Paige (she was the inaugural NXT Women’s Champion) and she is a two-time and youngest ever Divas Champion. Impressive!


But besides all that Paige is also a cast member of WWE’s reality show Total Divas for the past four seasons, meaning she isn’t losing any time or money anymore. As for the roles in the movie, Florence Pugh will play Paige, while Jack Lowden will play her brother Zak, What is unknown is the role that Dwayne will have on screen, besides being the executive producer of the entire thing, of course. For those of you who do not know, wrestling families is a topic that is very familiar to Dwayne, because he is coming from one, where his dad and granddad were also respective wrestling greats Rocky Johnson and High Chief Peter Maivia.

This movie will be a comedy-drama combo and will be written and directed by The Office’s Stephen Merchant who will also join Dwayne as the exec producer. For the rest of the cast info, and other news regarding this topic, stay tuned, we will report as soon we have something new.

My name is Miloš Kalajdžić and I come from Brčko DC in Bosnia. I was born on July 20 th 1988 and so far I obtained a BSc in economics and one year of working experience in my field of study. I am a very hard-working person who leaves nothing unfinished and halfway done. When I commit to something I give my best to make sure that everything is done the way as it is supposed to be. I like cars and everything that comes with them. My passion are American muscle cars, but unfortunately the closest I managed to come near one is behind my laptop watching an image of the new Chevy or Dodge and writing about it. But that’s ok I’m still optimistic. When I’m not behind the laptop writing I’m on the streets and auto shows admiring all stuff rolling on four wheels being propelled by a petrol engine!
