Forthcoming mobile streamer Quibi and WWE have revealed the professional wrestling cast set to star in the previously announced series Fight Like a Girl, produced by WWE Studios and Critical Content.

In each episode of the series, wrestling personality and WWE chief brand officer Stephanie McMahon pairs a WWE Superstar with a young woman struggling with a personal issue that has been holding her back. The wrestlers draw from their own life experiences to help their trainees overcome obstacles to become “tougher, stronger and healthier.”

Superstars include Sasha Banks, Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Alexa Bliss, Sonya Deville, Charlotte Flair, Nia Jax, Becky Lynch and Natalya.

“This strong cast of Superstars are leaders and role models who each have personal stories of challenge, perseverance and triumph,” McMahon said in a statement. “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.”

McMahon serves as executive producer with Susan Levison and Ben Zierten for WWE Studios. Tom Forman, Jenny Daly and Jon Beyer are executive producers for Los Angeles-based Critical Content.

Quibi is expected to launch this April in the U.S.
