Mia Yim On Working With Keith Lee, Possible Volleyball Career & More


The folks at Pro Wrestling Post recently spoke with WWE Superstar Mia Yim for an interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.

On why she preferred pro wrestling as a career choice: "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."

On the possibility of a professional career in volleyball: "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."

On stepping into the ring 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."
