Fighting With My Family, the movie based on the career of WWE star Paige, recently premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Out of the gate, it has garnered mixed reviews but mostly quite positive, currently standing at 80% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Within the film, the promotion’s own Zelina Vega portrayed former WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee and took to Twitter following the release hoping to obtain some validation from the now best-selling author herself:
Now, I hope @TheAJMendez likes it too ?

It’s always nice to make sure the person you’re portraying on film in front of thousands actually likes how you did it, I suppose. Although it appears that Lee has not, in fact, yet seen the piece, she replied to the tweet with kind words and encouragement:
Girl I could never even watch my actual self on TV without breaking out in hives haha, but I’m sure you were a great me! More importantly, you’re the first and only you. And I believe in you and Saraya wholeheartedly. Go kill it, ladies! https://t.co/SZYe54BI99

Fighting With My Family releases on February 14 in the US and on February 27 in the UK… I feel like we should get it first to be fair, Paige is from Norwich after all.
