Mia Yim made an impact in WWE NXT and had been someone who was likely going to move to the main roster.
It happened when WWE decided to call her up to the main roster and place her in the Retribution group.
Her role in the group was confirmed this past Monday night on Raw when the faction opened the show with an in-ring promo to set up a six-man tag team match against The Hurt Business. Yim, who was wearing a mask, did talk during the segment.
Shelton Benjamin simply sent out a tweet about the feud to further the storyline. This led to a comment from a negative fan about Yim and how she got the opportunity because of her relationship with Keith Lee.
The fan wrote, “She only got the gig because Keith Lee begged to have her brought to raw with him.”
Yim responded with, “Focus on surfing and less on rumors. I got to where I am because I busted my ass for over a decade.”
