Retribution’s Reckoning revealed that she tested positive for COVID-19. This meant that she could not compete in the Royal Rumble match, but the show had to go on.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer spoke about Mia Yim’s absence from the Royal Rumble match. He said that the company likely replaced her with one of the incoming NXT Superstars who were placed in the match as a surprise entrant.

“It could have been that Shotzi Blackheart or Santana Garrett was a last minute replacement for Mia Yim, because Mia Yim was supposed to be in that match and she tested positive for COVID. Santana Garrett is in the area so I think that, you know one of those two was probably the replacement for Mia Yim.”

We’re wishing Mia Yim the best during this time. She will quarantine for the needed amount of days until she is ready to make a return. Keith Lee’s absence was also notable. Lee and Yim are in a relationship, but his current status has not been publicly disclosed.
