WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley is no stranger to playing Dude Love, and he took on the role in a different way when he officiated the wedding of two former WWE Superstars over the weekend!
Former WWE Superstars Keith Lee and Mia Yim, who recently became free agents after their non-compete clauses expired, have been in a relationship for a number of years. The couple announced their engagement in February of 2021, and nearly a year later, they were married on February 5th.

As expected, a number of current and former WWE Superstars attended the wedding, but one WWE Hall of Famer had a very special role in making the happy couple’s day extra memorable. Mick Foley served as the officiant for the wedding, and the groom took to social media to send thanks to the former Dude Love.
“A plethora of thanks @RealMickFoley. Shout should you ever require me.”
Foley sent a response, stating:
“It was an honor, my friend.”
It was an honor, my friend.

The former Mankind is no stranger to playing a part in wrestling weddings, as he delivered a Mandible Claw at the wedding of IMPACT star Lady Frost and her husband “The Savage Gentleman” Victor Benjamin in 2019.
Mia Yim also took to social media to thank everyone who made their day a magical one and to express her love for her new husband.
“HappiLee Ever After. Thank you everyone and all the loved ones that was there to help make this day magical. I am proud and lucky to finally be Mrs. Lee. I love you @RealKeithLee

Keith Lee and Mia Yim are now free agents
Both Keith Lee and Mia Yim were released from the WWE on November 4, 2021 alongside sixteen other stars, including Nia Jax and Karrion Kross. The company cited budget cuts as the reason behind such a mass release of talent.
The couple’s 90 day non-compete clauses expired on February 2nd, and speculation abounds as to where they might end up now that they’re free to work elsewhere. One report stated that Lee signing a contract with AEW was likely a “done deal,” and with Tony Khan promising “more big signings,” eyes are certainly on Dynamite to see if he’ll be the one revealed as Isiah Kassidy’s mystery opponent in the qualifying match to become part of the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match.
