WWE Seemingly Scraps Mia Yim Name Change After Just 24-Hours

Mia Yim Michin

Mia Yim only returned to WWE on November 7th, but the star has already endured quite the whirlwind. In storyline the star returned to the company to join forces with The OC as they continue to battle Judgment Day, and more specifically Rhea Ripley who has been a thorn in their side for months.

After Yim had defeated Tamina, Damage CTRL attempted to recruit the star into the ranks for WarGames. However, the returning star declined their offer and instead aligned with their opponents Bianca Belair, Asuka and Alexa Bliss. This in turn led Rhea Ripley to join Damage CTRL and Nikki Cross in the match.

Mia Yim’s New Name Scrapped

On the November 21st edition of Monday Night Raw, a graphic was shown for the upcoming match at Survivor Series and Corey Graves on commentary referred to Mia Yim as Michin. The announcer explained that the name means “crazy” in Korean. The star is of both Black and Korean descent. To confirm the change Yim’s profile on WWE.com was changed to reflect her new alias.

However, just 24-hours later, Michin is gone, and the star is once again named Mia Yim. There is still one spot remaining on the ‘babyface’ team for WarGames, but it has been reported that it might be filled by a returning former champion.

Mia Yim was released by WWE back in November 2021. At the time of her departure Yim hadn’t wrestled on the main roster since December 2020, in fact she hadn’t wrestled at all since being defeated by Nikki Cross on Main Event the same month.

After leaving WWE, Yim signed with IMPACT Wrestling and made her debut at Under Siege saving Taya Valkyrie from a post-match attack courtesy of Deonna Purrazzo. However, her agreement with the company came to an end after the recent Bound for Glory tapings.
