Mia Yim made a surprise return to WWE on the November 7th, 2022 episode of Monday Night Raw.
Upon making her comeback the star aligned with The O.C. and AJ Styles against the Judgment Day. Since then Yim has become a regular presence on the red brand and featured in the women’s WarGames match back at Survivor Series.
The former IMPACT Wrestling star was among a number of names brought back to WWE during this period after being released on November 4th, 2021.
After making her return the star performed under her usual Mia Yim ring name before this very briefly appeared to change to Michin. However, in more recent times the names have become pretty much interchangeable.
During an appearance on the Out of Character podcast, Mia Yim surprisingly revealed that she’s not actually sure what her official ring name is.
“That’s a great question because I don’t know. I think it was originally a nickname. The whole time I was told it was a nickname. The biggest thing I want everyone to know is I’m okay with this name. Everything new, not everyone is going to like it. I get it, but I’m okay with this name. It’s better than Reckoning, so I’m not going to complain about this.
It’s a nickname now, and who knows, maybe in the future it could transition to being my name, which if it is, I’m okay with that, too. I just want everyone to know, like, you don’t have to set the building on fire. It’s okay. It’s also a challenge for me to make it work. It might not work now, because for 12 years I’ve been Mia Yim.
So of course, something different, something new, people are not gonna like it. ‘Why are you changing something that’s not broken?’ It’s like, okay, but this may be just a challenge. Let me see if I can get you to love Michin just as much as you love Mia Yim if that were the case.”
Report Dismisses Claims Triple H Is Unhappy With Returning Stars
Back in December, it was reported that Triple H had been “severely underwhelmed” by some of the Superstars that he had brought back to WWE. For the most part, none of the stars who returned have become a fixture in the main event scene, while Bray Wyatt has received an increasing level of criticism the longer his run has gone on. His match with LA Knight at the Royal Rumble was particularly divisive.
However, a more recent update has suggested that these claims were a little premature as many of the signings were made to increase the depth of the roster.
