Storyline Heading
Born into a tight-knit wrestling family, Paige and her brother Zak are ecstatic when they get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try out for WWE. But when only Paige earns a spot in the competitive training program, she must leave her family and face this new, cut-throat world alone. Paige's journey pushes her to dig deep, fight for her family, and ultimately prove to the world that what makes her different is the very thing that can make her a star.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama - Despite his prominence in all of the advertising and marketing, Dwayne Johnson only has a brief cameo role as himself in this comedy/drama, based on the life of fellow pro-wrestler Paige. Generally unknown Florence Pugh is the lead, with more familiar faces such as Johnson, Vince Vaughn, Lena Headey, and Nick Frost appearing in much smaller capacities. Language and violence make the film not for young kids, but most families with pre-teens will find this fairly acceptable, given the family-oriented theme of the film, which gives it appeal far beyond the pro wrestling fan core.

Critic's Review Heading

NY Post Full Review
Good And, although the film is about Paige's unlikely rise to TV stardom, what grabs us most is the eclectic Knight family running a scrappy professional wrestling gym on a shoestring. It might be the biggest missed reality-TV show opportunity ever. Are the effects cool? Kinda. They look pleasant...

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average ...a charming love letter to, and apologia for, the aesthetics of professional wrestling. essentially a comedy grafted onto a story of a woman's athletic self-discovery, with a few unelaborated thoughts on wrestling's theatrics sprinkled throughout.
