Did You Know?


Vince Vaughn's character doesn't exist in real life, although he seems to be based around former NXT Wrestling Trainer Bill Demott, along with other trainers that WWE tends to hire.


Ricky Knight: What?
Raya Knight: Dad! It's actually him.
Ricky Knight: You what?
Raya Knight: Yeah, it's actually him.
Ricky Knight: Hold the line one second.
Ricky Knight: It's Saraya and The Rock.
Julia Knight: Yeah, right.
Ricky Knight: I got you on speakerphone, sir.
The Rock: Hey, yeah. It's, uh, Dwayne Johnson. I'm here with your daughter now, and, uh, I first met her ...


In the film, Paige is recruited to NXT in Orlando. But at the time Paige was actually signed, NXT didn't exist yet. WWE's developmental league was called FCW (Florida Championship Wrestling) and was based out of Tampa. NXT and the WWE performance center opened in Orlando well after Paige was first signed.

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.

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.
