During the IMPACT Wrestling Under Siege special event, which aired this week for fans around the world, a face who had made a name for himself in WWE in recent years returned. In fact, after the match that she saw as protagonists Taya Valkyrie and Deonna Purrazzo, where the first of her defended her AAA Reina de Reina Champion belt, she returned to help and save her from the attack of her Virtuous, Mia Yim.
According to our colleagues at Fightful, this would not be an appearance for its own sake, but rather, it would be just the beginning of a new chapter of Mia Yim at IMPACT, because it seems that the wrestler has signed a contract with the company, too.
Unfortunately for the more attentive fans who surf a lot on social media, this wasn't exactly a surprise, as Laredo Kid inadvertently spoiled the return of the Korean-born wrestler via a video posted on social media while she was at the event.
In fact, you can clearly see the director rehearsing the entry of Keith Lee's wife, with her name in large letters on the titantron. The wrestler also posted a photo of her returning to her Instagram account that read: "Home sweet home."
Latest update on Mia Yim
Mia Yim was previously part of IMPACT under the alias of Jade between 2015 and 2017, where she was Knockouts World Champion and later, in 2016, Queen of the Knockouts.
She left the company in early 2017 after losing a Last Knockout Standing match to Rosemary. Mia instead left WWE when she was fired on November 4, 2021, after never making her return as The HBIC, after she was involved in the failed Retribution stable as Reckoning.
Many of her thought she could join her husband Keith Lee in AEW, but maybe IMPACT right now is the right home for her. Welcome back to my home! However, after making a lackluster debut under the new name 'Reckoning' as part of the stable 'Retribution', Mia Yim could never find her feet on the main roster and was eventually released.
Along with many other released talents from November 4th, Yim is now a free agent and can wrestle for other promotions. The former WWE Superstar took to Twitter today to announce her wrestling freedom. Much like Yim, her real-life partner Keith Lee was also released on November 4th last year and can now compete again.
Fans were stunned when Bearcat was let go last year given his mammoth size and absorbing personality both in and out of the ring.
