Mia Yim Discusses Pro Wrestling Being Her Career Choice And More

Last night's episode of NXT saw Mia Yim, formerly Jade in Impact Wrestling, make her debut with a win over Aliyah. ProWrestlingPost spoke with her before her WWE debut and below are interview highlights.

Choosing Pro Wrestling:

“So, I was always involved in sports. Watching wrestling back in the day when it was The Rock, Stone Cold, Lita, Chyna, we would watch as a family. My dad and my sister grew out of it, but I continued to watch it. Then, when I saw Lita and Chyna especially wrestling with the guys, that’s when I knew. I couldn’t play football with the guys, but if I could wrestle with guys I am totally down with that.”

Almost Pursuing A Professional Volleyball Career:

“I already had it in my head that there wasn’t really a possibility of making the Olympic team. Then, when I started training for wrestling, that’s when I knew I wanted to full on pursue wrestling. I love volleyball, I still play volleyball, but once I started training, wrestling was my passion. I would play offside hitter when I was a player.”

Working With Keith Lee:

“We were already friends, so it was easy talking over things. I was overcoming an injury, so I was still having a mental block about doing things. Whether they were high flying moves, suicide dives, things like that, but I knew with Keith I could do whatever. I knew that because he would protect me, he will make sure to keep me safe.”
