Mia Yim and Keith Lee are in a battle against Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae
NXT superstar Mia Yim enjoyed kicking Johnny Gargano on this week’s show.
Gargano and his wife, Candice LeRae, have targeted Yim and her boyfriend Keith Lee. It was Lee that came out to make the save for Yim on NXT.
However, the HBIC had a go at Gargano and even knocked him out of the ring. Yim certainly enjoyed that and shared that image with a brilliant captaion on Instagram:
A few weeks ago, Yim had a chance to fight the NXT Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair. After being blasted by LeRae verbally, her match this week against Santana Garrett was a must-win scenario for the HIBC.
Garrett did not wait long to get this match started, going behind Yim but the takedown was blocked quickly by her opponent. Being thrown into the corner by Yim, Garrett pushed over her opponent and came back with a quick arm drag.
Garrett then sent Yim into the corner and hit a handspring back elbow followed by a snap suplex, after which she floated over for a near fall. Finally she finished the bout with her trademark Protect Ya Neck. But it did not end there.
New targets for the new heels
After the match, Gargano and LeRae came out. The Power Couple claimed that Yim constantly gets handed opportunities. Yim failed to capture the NXT Women’s Championship from Charlotte recently, and LeRae believed that had she been in the match, she would’ve walked away the new champion.
The Gargano family assaulted Yim, leading to NXT North American Champion Lee coming to help her.
Yim and Lee rushed the ring, forcing Gargano and LeRae to high tail it back up the ramp.
