Mia Yim and Keith Lee are in a relationship but she wasn’t taking any nepotism links regarding her WWE career
Former NXT star Mia Yim made the move up to Raw after being named as one of the members of Retribution.
She was more or less confirmed a couple of weeks back thanks to a promo the five members cut. However, Yim took the microphone this week as she hit out at WWE and made quite an impression.
The Head Baddie in Charge was one of the best performers on NXT and it was only a matter of time before she moved to one of the top WWE brands.
However, not everyone seems to think she deserved that. Social media has allowed trolls to take shots at stars, and one fan did the same recently.
One suggested that the only reason she got onto Raw was because of her partner Keith Lee. While Lee has become one of the biggest names in WWE over the past year or so, Yim shot that down:
“Focus on surfing and less on rumors. I got to where I am because I busted my ass for over a decade.”

Yim getting her dues
The HBIC didn’t win the top titles on NXT but that isn’t a measure of her quality. She had done a lot on the Black and Gold brand and it was great that she got the call up to Raw.
While Retribution has been a bit hit and miss since they came on Raw and SmackDown, the women could do something great in the faction.
Mercedes Martinez is the other female member of Retribution. She and Yim are two of the toughest female athletes in WWE and there should be some great matches set up for them.
The three male members were given new names on Raw, and it will be interesting to see if the same is followed for Yim and Martinez.
