Here is your Fightful Wrestling Update for February 17!
* WWE posted a video to their YouTube channel with Corey Graves narrating 6 Heartbreaking WrestleMania Defeats. You can watch it above.
* The Rock posted to Instagram that the Paige-centric movie he's producing, "Fighting With My Family" has cast Thea Trinidad (Rosita in TNA) to play "the Divas Champion." It is assumed she is playing AJ Lee, though that is not specifically mentioned in The Rock's post.
FINALLY... @theatrinidadtmt our #DivasChampion. Our @sevenbucksprod is proud to welcome Thea to our #FightingWithMyFamily cast! Casting the right woman to play our champion was critical. I wanted to keep the integrity of our movie's authenticity. We had to find a woman who not only has a real star quality, but she also had to have a real reverence and love for our unique wrestling business. Thea has been working extremely hard for years on the independent wrestling circuit and for those who understand what that means - you know how much one has to love our crazy business to work independently for years. She has a star quality, great presence, humility and is always all about being, "the hardest worker in the room". She's working her butt off to put on an outstanding performance in our movie. Congrats, Thea and welcome to the cast. Let's put in that work and move the crowd. #FightingWithMyFamily #TheaTrinidad #DivasChampion #SevenBucksProds #MisherFilms #Film4 #WWEFilms
