Mia Yim had a ton of potential in WWE, as she had a solid run in NXT. However, luck was clearly not in her favor as her momentum was lost after she was called up to the main roster. In fact, wrestling stopped being fun for her.

Mia Yim was released by WWE on November 4 of last year after being drafted to Monday Night RAW. Afterwards, she spent some time in the independent circuit, simply getting back to what she loved doing.

While to Inside The Ropes, Mia Yim revealed that pro wrestling stopped being fun for her while she worked in WWE. She saw it more as a job and nothing more.

“So the biggest issue I had with the relationship between having fun and wrestling, it’s a lot of the mental game. So it was starting to feel more like work, like what is it, 2022? So the end of 2020, early 2021, it felt more like a work and less like fun. The minute it started to become like that, I needed to take a couple of months off just to kind of revaluate what I wanted to do in general, whether it be wrestling again or just real life stuff.


Like, it’s not fun for me anymore. I don’t want to be told what I can and can’t do and like having to change who I am. I just I just didn’t know if that was something I wanted to do again,”

Mia Yim also criticized WWE for changing gimmicks just to fire their talent. She also has a short term contract with Impact Wrestling but is likely to extend it later on. It remains to be seen how she’ll fare in Impact Wrestling.
