Paige was the victim of leaked photos and videos of a very private nature.

"Fighting With My Family" tells the story of Paige and her journey to WWE. "I don't wish that for anyone". It makes me feel really good, because that was my aim for when I came over here: "I just wanted to change the perception of how women were looked at in general, and I thought me and couple of others kind of did that", said Paige. "I felt so rock bottom", she added. Paige said she went on a downward spiral into depression after the leaks, describing it as "rock bottom".

But the movie also shows the drama that happened behind the scenes, namely how Paige made it the WWE, while her brother - another wrestler - did not.

"Of course, she didn't have the internet and thought I was the most handsome and most successful woman in the world", Paige said.

Fighting With My Family is scheduled for release on February 14th.

"‪In 2012 I watched a documentary about a young, unknown British female pro wrestler & her wonderfully insane and loving wrestling family", Johnson, 46, wrote on Instagram of his inspiration to make Paige's life into a movie. "I loved it and instantly identified with her and her family - because it reminded me of MY wonderfully, loving and f-- insane wrestling family".

Paige said that everything seemed to turn around for her when a seven-year-old fan approached her in a supermarket. I was like, 'I'm gonna let videos get in the way of things?' I thought, what am I doing? I need to be successful for her.
