Mia Yim undergoes name change. 

Earlier this month, Mia Yim made her return to WWE and was paired with The O.C. (AJ Styles, Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows) to even the numbers against The Judgment Day and to offset Rhea Ripley. 

Since coming back, Yim has been referred to and has referred to herself as ‘Michin’. The nickname is now her on-screen name as she is officially being branded as ‘Michin’ on WWE’s official website. Below is an except from her bio: 

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.

Yim is scheduled to compete in the women’s WarGames match this Saturday. She’ll be teaming with Asuka, Alexa Bliss, Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair and a mystery partner to face Bayley, Nikki Cross, Rhea Ripley and WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Dakota Kai and IYO SKY.
