The English wrestling superstar held multiple belts during her time with the WWE, and she made a name for herself as an Anti-Diva with her goth style and brashness. This new movie tells her story, and the wrestling family she came from.

The cast is lead by Florence Pugh as Paige; her fighting family is played by by Lena Headey, Nick Frost, and Jack Lowde; Vince Vaughn makes an appearance as a WWE trainer.
