Make no mistake: Mia Yim is taking over.

She’s been wrestling for almost eight years, but over the course of the past few months, Mia has hit warp speed, winning the SHINE Championship, joining the top ranks in SHIMMER and earning a career-changing opportunity with one major wrestling company.

In an exclusive interview with Diva Dirt, Mia talks about her shocking SHINE Championship win and what made the moment so special. She also shares her mindset going in to next Friday’s SHINE 26 Title vs. Title match against NWA Women’s Champion Santana Garret as well as the women she’d like to defend the belt against in the future.

This Saturday, Mia will take part in SHIMMER 71: The ChickFight Tournament, competing with the very best in women’s wrestling for a future shot at the SHIMMER Championship. She tells us who she hopes to meet up with in the finals as well as how she deals with high pressure scenarios like this.

All of that, plus her thoughts on #GiveDivasAChance, Leva Bates‘s NXT success, taking risks in the ring, intergender wrestling in mainstream companies and much more in the interview below.
