Sasha Banks made headlines following her NJPW debut. Since then, almost every female superstar is trying to share the spotlight with her. Adding to the list is WWE Superstar Mia Yim, who made her return last year to the company. Aligning herself with The OC and AJ Styles, the former Retribution member created a sudden splash over fans.
However, just when the steering was working fine, Styles’ knee injury applied unwanted brakes to their act on Monday Night Raw. From the beginning of this year, Yim has been featured in singles competition on the red brand where she had some fierce clashes against the likes of Rhea Ripley and Damage CTRL. Plus, she was a part of the winning Women’s WarGames team at Survivor Series this year.
Riding at the top of her game at the moment, Mia Yim is seeking opportunities everywhere. Not just limiting herself within the confines of WWE, she’s actually interested in doing business through that forbidden door. That being said, she was recently asked about a potential run in Japan and her dream match over there, during an interview with WrestlingInc.
“I am. I’ve wrestled in Japan many, many times, but I’ve always wanted to wrestle for New Japan. So that is on the bucket list. So AJ, Karl, make sure you bring me next time. I’m still offended you didn’t. So I’m guessing that Mia Yim versus Mercedes Moné match, is that what you would like to maybe happen over there, or no? Definitely a dream match, for sure.”

What’s the next step for Sasha Banks in NJPW?
As soon as she arrived in the Antonio Inoki founded promotion, Mercedes Mone (formerly as Sasha Banks) made her intentions clear. She wants that IWGP Women’s Championship, currently held by KAIRI. As a matter of fact, they’re set to collide on February 18th at Battle in the Valley pay-per-view event. The arena located in San Jose has already been sold-out.
Moreover, Mone wants to make the most use of her current run in Japan. She’s hellbent on wrestling across the globe, not just in Stardom. As far as Mia Yim’s desire to compete with Banks is concerned, it’s not impossible. However, a lot of variables would be required to align appropriately, especially considering how bounded WWE has been about collaborating with other promotions in the past.
But since Triple H took over as the creative lead, he’s made the unthinkable come to fruition. At first, Shinsuke Nakamura received the greenlight to wrestle The Great Muta on new year’s day in NOAH. Then, back at Wrestle Kingdom 17, Karl Anderson squared off against Tama Tonga, despite being under an official contract with WWE. Likewise Mia Yim can get her chance to ace the borders and travel across countries to live her dream.
