AIW: Mia Yim Challenges Mickie Knuckles for the Belt

Mickie Knuckles who won the AIW title this past July at AIW Girls Night Out 4, defended it last Friday against Mia Yim.  As it turned out, a special referee was available -- Gail Kim -- to supervise the action.  This was Mia's debut at AIW and her first forray into Ohio to wrestle.  She was the heel as the ever-popular Mickie Knuckles played the "face" at home in Cleveland.  Gail Kim tweeted today that she forgot she was reffing a few times she was so busy "watching" the action.  Gail had a lot of people watching her too!  And she did not disappoint as she mixed it up with Yim during the post-match delivering a few powerful forearm smashes followed by a clothesline that took Mia down.  One can only dream of a possible match between KIM and YIM (Perhaps an outdoor match in Coex Plaza, Seoul, Korea -- I'd be there!)

According to AIW brass, the match went about 15 minutes!  Fantastic!  That's why we love AIW.  Mia missed her Sky Twister Press and Mickie capitalized on the mistake finishing Mia off with a spinning powerbomb for the three-count.
