few weeks ago now, Mia Yim would have a chance to fight the NXT Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair. She would be promptly beaten by the Queen, and will now need to reclimb her way up the NXT ladder. After being further blasted by Candice LeRae verbally, her match this week against NXT hopeful Santana Garrett would be a must win scenerio for the HIBC.
Mia Yim Makes Very Quick Work Of Santana Garrett
Garrett wouldn’t wait long to get this match started, going behind Yim but the Takedown would be blocked. Being thrown into the corner by Yim, Garrett would push over her opponent and come back with a quick armdrag. Yim would respond with an armdrag of her own, before they would both go for dropkicks, leading to a stand-off.
Garrett would send Yim into the corner and hit a handspring back elbow followed by a snap suplex, after which she would float over for a near fall. Yim would come back with a Dragon Suplex followed by some kicks reminiscent of AJPW legend Toshiaki Kawada . Finally she would finish this early with Protect Ya Neck.
While Santana Garrett is far from the top competitor in NXT, this dominant and quick win from Mia Yim was very impressive. It shows that when she is able to focus, she will easily kick some ass.
The Gargano Clan Comes To Ringside
Interrupting her celebrating this win, Johnny Gargano & Candice LeRae would make their way to the ringside area. They would congratulate her in very sarcastic manner about finally winning a match, with LeRae asking if that was what she was supposed to do in her match with Champion Charlotte Flair. Claiming Yim got another chance on a silver platter, only to drop it again, because she was too busy pandering to the fans. LeRae would have thrived if given the chance Yim got, she wouldn’t have blown it.
Gargano offered to show Yim what happens to people who get chances they don’t deserve in their NXT. Yim would kick the face of the Grand Slam Champion, before LeRae attacked from behind. Yim fought back but would be sent to the floor next to Gargano, when backup would arrive in the form of Keith Lee. We have never seen Gargano move away faster than when Lee came.
