An NXT Superstar Is Speaking Out About Her Domestic Violence Experience
When you look at Mia Yim, you see a strong, confident woman-she refers to herself as the HBIC of NXT, after all.
However, in spite of her status as one of the top females on the NXT brand, Mia Yim has an unexpected back story. Specifically, Mia Yim was previously a victim of domestic violence. Yim, for her part, is using her platform to speak out as a survivor.

Mia Yim. Her journey to get to WWE, being told no but she still continued. She bounced back from an injury. From dealing with domestic violence. Abusive relationships, which i’ve dealt with. Mia is truly my hero. You’re the reason i keep going to achieve my dreams. ily💙thank you pic.twitter.com/TiKiNVO4D9

The reason why @MiaYim is my hero, mentor, and role model. #FellowDVSurvivor
Mia Yim is a survivor of domestic violence just like me. (I was abused in a relationship with a mean ex girlfriend named Celia but that’s another story.) https://t.co/VaYs5Nkzfc

For someone of Yim’s stature to openly talk about her past and champion for victims is vitally important and will no doubt help others moving forward.

So far, at least The Rock responded (and was totally fine with the WWE Hall of Famer using his finisher).
