If you’ve smelled what Stephen Merchant has been cooking, you’re probably pretty excited to watch the first trailer for his upcoming movie, “Fighting With My Family,” which tells the life story of retired WWE Superstar and current “SmackDown Live” commissioner Paige.

Below is the dramedy’s logline, per MGM:

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.
