Mia Yim had want looks like an amazing tag team match Saturday evening, May 28, at REINA 3.  She teamed with Aki Kambayashi and went against two women she admires and had never faced in the ring:  her friend from the States, hard-hitting Hailey Hatred, and the great legend of Joshi Puroresu, Manami Toyota!  It was a dream come true for Mia and an amazing opportunity to measure herself, in a packed career, not yet two years old, against the best wrestlers in the business.  To give credit where it is due, REINA has shown great faith in the young, fairly untested, American.  She must have gotten good reviews from Hailey, Tomoka, Hiroyo, and Ayumi to even have been invited to Japan in the first place.  But after her strong 1 v 1 match vs. Hiroyo Matsumoto at REINA 2 (5/15), she was given the honor of a lifetime:  a shot in the ring with Manami Toyota, perhaps the best wrestler to have ever stalked the squared circle.  I'm sure it was a moment that Mia Yim will never forget!
