This Friday will be the release of MGM’s film Fighting With My Family.

It’s a good trailer, but it really doesn’t anything we haven’t seen before. The film was inspired by the British documentary titled The Wrestlers: Fighting with My Family.

Here is the synopsis for Fighting With My Family:
Based on a true story, Fighting with My Family follows reformed gangster Ricky, wife Julia, daughter Paige and son Zak as they make a living wrestling together in tiny venues. When Paige and Zak get the opportunity to try out for WWE, the family grabs a once-in-a-lifetime chance to turn their wildest dreams into a dazzling future. However, brother and sister quickly discover that to become superstars, both their talent and their relationship will be put to the test. Fighting with My Family is a heartwarming and smart comedy that proves everything is worth fighting for when it comes to family.
Regardless about how you feel about Wrestling, it’s a fantastic story. With as messed up as some of those WWE story lines have been, it’s good for WWE films to have a good story out there on the road to Wrestlemania 35.
