An up-close look at Mia Yim

Mia Yim

Following Mia Yim’s statement-making back-to-back victories against Bianca Belair, the NXT Universe got a closer look at The Head Baddie in Charge during an eye-opening video profile. The HBIC, whose mother is Korean and father is black, recounted the difficulties she experienced growing up in Southern California during the riots of the early ’90s, when Korean-American and African-American communities were at odds.

Describing herself as “the rose that grew from concrete,” Yim explained that she used sports-entertainment as her escape. Now that she’s in NXT and riding a wave of momentum, Yim made clear she’s ready to take aim at NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler. Citing Baszler’s bullying of the NXT Women’s division, The HBIC vowed to help those who need protection from The Queen of Spades and offered a warning to Baszler: “I am the hell and the high water.”
