Interview with Mia Yim after her tour of Japan

Interview with Mia Yim after her tour of Japan




Recently, Mr Main Event BDuB had the pleasure of catching up with Mia Yim after her recent tour of Japan. Check out what she had to say.
MEBD: What would you say was your favorite match throughout your trip in Japan, and why?
MY: It would have to be my Revenge match against Hiroyo Matsumoto or my second to last match there again Ray. Only because both were very hard hitting and seemed like an equal fight. I felt like we both gave our all in the match and you can truly tell.
MEBD: I noticed on your fan page that you sustained your first wrestling injury, exactly how did that occur?
MY: I was practicing a Top Rope Moonsault. I overshot the crash pad and stubbed (Hyperflexion) my toe on the mat upon impact.
MEBD: How would you compare the fans reaction to you in Japan to the reactions in the United States?
MY: The fans, both in Japan and US, respect us. In Japan, they shower us with streamers and even give us gifts. The fans in Japan are quiet and observe the wrestling. It is eerie the first time but I enjoy it. Easier to concentrate on the match rather than a noisy crowd.
MEBD: With your upcoming return trips to Japan, and ring of honors recently television deal, will fans here in the United States ever get to see you on TV?
MY: I think fans will be able to see me on TV but with ROH, I am only a manager so I don’t think you get to see me wrestle much. In Japan, I was on Samurai TV a few times that shows clips of me wrestling. I haven’t seen it but I was told I was on TV haha.
MEBD: The last time we talked, we discussed the moonsault, did you get many opportunities to perfect it on this trip?
MY: I got to practice the moonsault many times in Japan. I executed it to the outside twice during my trip. It is still rare to see me do a moonsault at all though. So don’t get use to me doing it much haha.
MEBD: Since you have been touring Japan, what would you say has been your biggest improvements?
MY: My biggest improvements…everything. I think my whole wrestling ability and skill has gotten stronger. I got to work on my kicks, work on some lucha, work on some chaining and reversals. I think in general, everything has improved.
MEBD: How did this trip differ from the last?
I was here for a month in a half, rather than last time I was only there for two weeks. Being here for a longer period, I got to get a lot more accomplished. I met a lot of new people, I trained at Zero1, I got to wrestle different joshi stars.
MEBD: What do you plan to do differently on the next trip?
MY: I don’t know yet
MEBD: When you was not training, or performing, what did you do to pass the time in Japan?
MY: I would do P90X/Insanity in my room. Hang out with Hailey Hatred and Luscious Latasha. Go out on dates. SHOPPING!!!
MEBD:How can fans get a hold of your footage from Japan?
MY: http://reina0017.cart.fc2.com/
MEBD: The situation is, you have two opportunities, to wrestle in Japan, or wrestle in the WWE and be in the Divas championship match, where does Mia Yim go and why?
MY: Wrestle in Japan. Why? Because I get to actually WRESTLE. I am respected for my wrestling and it is taken seriously in Japan.
MEBD: 2011 has been really good to you, what do you have planned for 2012?
MY: 2012, I plan to get my IT Degree. Once I get that, I plan to pack my stuff and move to Japan to wrestle full time. Hopefully make a name in Japan ^.^
