*WARNING – Spoilers ahead*
With the first round of WWE’s second annual Mae Young Classic still being aired weekly on the WWE Network, those who have tuned in have gotten a chance yet again to catch some more great female talent, just as we saw last year.
One of the more popular competitors in this year’s field has been Mia Yim, the former IMPACT Wrestling star who competed as Jade. The 29-year old, 9-year veteran of course also took part in the tournament last year, only making it to the second round where she was eliminated by Shayna Baszler. Last week, we saw Mia once again advance to the second round when she defeated her old rival Allysin Kay, securing her next match against Kaitlyn. Of course if you followed along with the spoilers for the Mae Young Classic, we know Mia will make it onto one more round before being eliminated.
While Mia certainly won’t be going as far as some fans would like, she did get a lot of love from the live crowd following her exit from the tournament as Full Sail University rang out with chants of “Please Sign Mia” directed at Triple H, much like we saw with Cedric Alexander during the Cruiserweight Classic in 2016. Today, we now know that the crowd’s wishes have come true as PWInsider is confirming that Mia has indeed signed a WWE contract. This makes Yim the only competitor from the Mae Young Classic field (who isn’t already signed) to be given a WWE deal and if you’ve been following along with recent videos shot at the Performance Center, you will see she is already there working out.
At this time, there’s no word on when she will be making her official debut.
