Fighting With My Family, the movie produced by WWE Studios and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson about the life of WWE superstar Paige has added another cast member. Former TNA wrestler Rosita, whose real name is Thea Trinidad, will play a former WWE Divas Champion in the film, according to an Instagram post from The Rock. Trinidad joins Lena Headey and Nick Frost as Paige's parents.
Johnson doesn't say who Trinidad will play, though we could hazard some guesses. When Paige debuted on WWE's main roster in 2014, she defeated then champion AJ Lee for the Divas Championship. Lee had held the title for 296 days prior to that, and could surely be considered a major part of Paige's story, especially if it ends with her winning the championship. Paige comes from a family of wrestlers, and the movie is said to center on her and her brother's attempt to make it in WWE. Paige first began trying out for WWE in 2010 and succeeded in 2011, and champions during that period included Maryse, Eve Torres, Alicia Fox, Melina, Michelle McCool, Natalya, Brie Bella, Kelly Kelly, and Beth Phoenix. Only the last two had reigns lasting longer than two months, so could be the most likely, if not Lee. Champions while Paige was in WWE's developmental system, where she adopted an "anti-Diva" gimmick for a time, include Nikki Bella, Layla, Torres, Kaitlyn, and Lee.
Based on Johnson's comments, we're leaning heavily toward AJ Lee, as she's almost certainly the most accomplished wrestler of the bunch. However, Lee is also the wife of former WWE Superstar CM Punk, who has been publicly feuding with the company since he left in 2014, which could hurt her chances to be featured prominently, as WWE knows how to hold a grudge. It's possible that WWE could simply choose to use a fictional Divas champion based on Lee.
