Mia Yim comments on her name being changed to Michin in WWE

As previously noted, Mia Yim’s name has been changed to Michin which means “crazy” in Korean. During an interview with the Ten Count podcast, Mia commented on the new name…

“Yes. It’s a nickname within the OC, all the boys have their nicknames. They’re like, ‘You need a nickname too.’ ‘We’ll do a nickname that I’ve had since I was a kid. Something that my mom has been calling me since I was a kid. We’ll go with that.”

Mia also talked about Triple H…

“I have a lot of respect for him and when I found out that he took over, he was bringing all my friends back and it was the right time, right place. Working under him in NXT, it was fun. It’s so easy to talk to him. It was an easy decision for me to come back with him in charge, for sure.” (quotes courtesy of Jeremy Lambert)

On Tuesday, WWE.com reverted back to the Mia Yim name so it appears that Michin will be just a nickname moving forward.
