WWE Superstar Mia Yim is no longer known as, well, Mia Yim.
On the November 21, 2022 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw, Mia Yim was labeled as “Michin,” which translates to “Crazy” in Korean. During the November 14, 2022 episode of Raw, “Michin” was referenced as a nickname for Yim, however, it appears that the company has officially changed her in-ring name to the nickname.
On WWE’s official website, her profile has been updated and reads:
Michin is living proof that hard work and dogged determination pay off. Long considered one of the most talented women in the independent ranks, Michin first turned heads in WWE during the inaugural Mae Young Classic in 2017. Her true breakout moment, however, came in the following year’s Classic, when Michin’s gutsy performance in the Quarterfinals earned chants of support from the WWE Universe. Their pleas did not go unanswered, as WWE COO Triple H immediately offered Michin an NXT contract after the match.
Though her arrival to the black-and-yellow brand is undeniably a feel-good story, there’s nothing comforting about Michin’s actions inside the ring. The self-proclaimed “Blasian Baddie,” Michin is a regular training partner of Shayna Baszler and Jessamyn Duke, and boasts an extensive background in both Muay Thai and Taekwondo. Her striking prowess and submission expertise make Michin a threat to be reckoned with, and her foot-to-face capper, Sole Food, is all but guaranteed to spell the end for opponents.
Michin then signed on with Raw during the 2021 WWE Draft.
On the November 7th 2022 edition of Raw, Michin made her return after an absence, proving to be the solution to The O.C.’s Rhea Ripley problem.
It might have taken Michin nearly a decade to get to WWE, but now that she’s a member of the roster, she looks right at home.
Mia Yim, now officially known as Michin, made her comeback to WWE during the November 7, 2022 edition of Raw, joining The O.C. faction with AJ Styles, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, attacking Rhea Ripley in her new faction’s war with The Judgement Day. She will take on Ripley as a part of a Women’s WarGames Match that she will take part in at WWE’s Survivor Series Premium Live Event.
