The Mae Young Classic was a huge success on the WWE Network. It now appears based off this that one particular female in the 32-women tournament will be starring in her own documentary focused around her career.

Marti Belle recently commented on how the Mae Young Classic has positively affected her and her career. Now her fellow competitor and Insane Championship Wrestling icon Viper- known to WWE fans from the Mae Young Classic as Piper Niven will be the subject of an upcoming documentary.

The documentary, titled “Fight Like A Girl” solely focuses on the career of Niven, real name Kimberly Benson. The documentary itself will air today on BBC One in the UK at 7:30pm local time. We anticipate the documentary will eventually be available online, too.

We have provided the description of the documentary below.

Kimberly Benson is Viper, one of Scotland’s top female wrestlers. As part of BBC1’s Our Lives, we’re with Kim in Glasgow and in Japan as she fights in some of the most important matches of her career.

As women’s wrestling steps into the mainstream, it’s a pivotal moment in Kim’s career. We follow Kim into this intriguing and sometimes dangerous world at home and abroad, as she takes us behind the scenes of a rarely seen, often misunderstood, yet utterly fascinating world.

We are with Kim as she competes in a series of high-pressure matches that could have a huge impact on her future career. We are ringside as she fights men twice her size in a rare match that puts male and female wrestlers in the one ring to fight it out. We see her battle for a Scottish championship, and ultimately she puts everything on the line for a chance at her first ever world champion title. We travel with her to Japan to see her take part in this epic match. Can Kim survive the hectic pace of training, traveling and fighting? Can she do all this while balancing working for a living and some form of family life? On top of all that, there’s the ever-present threat of injury.

While the outcomes of wrestling bouts are scripted, there is nothing fake about the physical danger these women constantly put themselves in. How far can Kim’s talent, personality, skill, and bravery take her in the world of pro wrestling, and what does it cost her?

Niven took to her Twitter account to comment on the documentary, whilst also juggling press throughout the day ahead of the release.
