We’ve known for about six months now that WWE is working on a series for Quibi, a mobile-based streaming platform that launches in April of this year. The series is called Fight Like A Girl, and each episode features a young woman getting help and advice from a WWE Superstar paired up with her by Stephanie McMahon. Today, WWE officially announced details about the series.
For one thing, we know that the Superstars who serve as mentors are Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Nikki and Brie Bella, Sasha Banks, Alexa Bliss, Sonya Deville, Natalya, Paige and Nia Jax. That probably means there’s nine episodes, at least in the first season (does Quibi have seasons?), assuming the Bella Twins appear together.
Here’s WWE’s full announcement:
Quibi and WWE today announced the WWE Superstars participating in the transformational series “Fight Like a Girl.” Leading individual episodes of the upcoming series are Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Nikki and Brie Bella, Sasha Banks, Alexa Bliss, Sonya Deville, Natalya, Paige and Nia Jax.
In each episode of “Fight Like a Girl,” Stephanie McMahon pairs a WWE Superstar with a young woman struggling with a personal issue that has been holding her back. The WWE Superstars draw from their own life experiences to help their trainees overcome obstacles and become tougher, stronger and healthier versions of their former selves inside and out.
“This strong cast of Superstars are leaders and role models who each have personal stories of challenge, perseverance and triumph,” said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Chief Brand Officer. “We are thrilled to have them on board to help young women find both their inner and outer strength and overcome adversity in their lives.”
Shot at the world-famous WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla., each episode features a stunning transformation and heart-pounding reveal as the women change the girls’ lives forever.
