This is the Mia Yim/Stephanie Bell Formspring Interview.These are questions gleaned from Formspring questions that Mia answered over the past six months.I think Mia fans and Mia haters alike will be impressed with her frankness and honesty.I have always been impressed with her down-to-earth attitude, her self-deprecating humor, and her willingness to be vulnerable.I have not altered the grammar or spelling of the questions or answers.Enjoy the questions and answers.
These opening questions were answered during July-September when Mia was living in Japan or traveling there frequently.
I agree. I think alot of different styles of molding together. It really depends on the wrestler if they want to use it in the ring. I know some Lucha, but I dont use it because I am not comfortable with it yet. I do like the fact that everyone is learning different styles
Ignore it. I usually laugh it off. Sometimes, I like to play along if I am bored, but I usually ignore it. If you are a female in the business, u better get use to it. Got to have tough skin because even if you tell someone to fuck off, they wont.
I suck and still needs lots of practice. Ill admit it. One important thing in wrestling that I desperately need to work on is my promo and mic skills. I get stage fright so I always freeze up and get anxious.
I use it to show that I respect him as a wrestler. Never met him but would like to. I have the biggest crush on him. I dont wear gear exactly like him, but what we do have in common, gear wise is the kickpads and the shorts. But design and stuff is totally different. Only thing I consider Hayato Inspired is my move set and my GOD BLESS on my wrist tape. Hope he finds it flattering ^.^
If I get an email asking to book me for the weekend, id most likely take it. I originally planned to just train hard and diet to get my body in shape for going to Japan, but if I got a call to do a show, id do it
^.^ I met dj Hyde at japw and he invited me to train at czw. 6mos later, I was in town for the summer so I went to go train. Continued to train and he shot me the idea about Cole. Totally was down for it. He is awesome to be with. Couldn't be with anyone better
Wake up, Drink a big glass of water with my Birth Control pill, Green Tea pill, two fish oil pills. Then I make breakfast which is usually Plain oatmeal with water and 25 blueberries along with 2 boiled egg whites. Then I go online for an hour to digest the food, then I go to the gym. After the gym, I go home, eat, shower, then spend the rest of the day on the computer, playing video games, or watching tv. At least this is my usual day when school is out for the summer and I am not traveling
Thank you. I hope to be in WWE or full time in Japan as my top goals in wrestling. After I get my degree in IT, either have a desk job during the weekn, wrestle on the weekends, or plan to move to Japan to wrestling full time
Thank you. I started my first diet last year after my TNA try out solely for career reasons. After a few months, i started making a change in my lifestyle for personal reasons. I feel alot healthier, always happy, in a great mood, etc etc. So currently, I am doing it for both career (physical appearance, always wanted abs) and personal (Feeling healthy)
I did once on the train. Older guy looked at me funny, then stood up when I sat next to him. Kept giving me an evil look, when I finally said "can I help you?!" he just kept looking at me mean. Whatever, could care less
Any Thoughts On Marti Belle if she was reading this?
Marti knows I love her alot. She has been there for me when I needed her the most. She was there through my tough times and see's me for me. I can tell her anything and know it won't be spread. She can keep a secret and she gives GREAT advice. I am blessed to have her as a best friend.
Because wrestling is my love. I get a chance to meet new people, showcase my talent, and entertain fans. What more could I ask for? And I am not doing it for the fame, but more because I love the sport itself.
I really like the Japanese style. Authentic Japanese styles. I really hate the tight pants (for boys), fake geek glasses (why the fuck u got glasses when u dont need them), and pants that hang down someone's ass. You look stupid as fuck. Pull up your pants and wear a damn belt. Anyone who walks around with a pacified looks like they need to get slapped in the face as well
Male: Fujita Jr Hayato, Low Ki, The Blk Jeez, TJ Perkins, Kota Ibushia. Female: Kana, Sara Del Rey, Daizee Haze, Ayumi, Nakagawa. I could spend days playing Left 4 Dead with Bobby Shields and Hyjinx. Great partners in killing zombies
The bird and the bee's my friend. I give my parents credit. I am sure marti feels the same about her beauty. It is also about personality as well. Hope to do a photoshoot with her soon, preferably with Lee South
I dont keep anything organized, but I should. I put little important things on my wall in my room like my Kowloon towel gift from my Kareshi on my wall, some Mr. Danger bags on my wall, Photos from fans, etc. I want to get a flag next time im in japan to put in my room ^.^
The worst memory: We went on a field trip somewhere. I didnt have any friends (I was considered a nerd) so I sat on the curb by myself when waiting for the bus to come pick us up. A group of snotty girls started throwing pebbles at me. I just sat there, drawing imaginary stick figures on the ground while they threw pebbles at me. I will never forget it.
The best memory: Making a best friend. in Soph year. We were close all the way until we went to college (We went to different colleges and lost contact T.T)
Lol, my life isnt anything special. And with dating, its really a curse in disguise.
There are always two types of guys I bump into. The ones who want to be with Mia Yim and the guys that want to sleep with Mia Yim. Never the guys that want to get to know and start a relationship with Stephanie. They have a perception of me and dont know the real me.
Then there are guys who just wants to get into my pants. I have to really look out for my safety and heart so I dont fall for the wrong guy, which I currently have. I continue to learn to adapt to this lifestyle, and watching over myself. I try not to get attached to anyone unless I know its really a true thing. So in a way, I dont mind when guys want me, but I know its only for one thing. Its difficult to find a true guy esp with this lifestyle.
Thank you very much! I can def improve though >.< Lol, i get ALOT of comments on my traps/shoulders and they always ask me to flex them. I had these traps since I was young because of the 50lb back packs i would wear.
What was your best in-ring moment of 2011?What was your best personal moment of 2011? (I'm guessing one or both answers have to do with Japan ^.^)
Lol, you are right. My best in ring moment was wrestling Hailey hatred and manami Toyota in a tag. My best personal moment would be gaining training in Japan (both Reina and zero 1) and meeting hayato.
She is awesome. I love her. She's always embarrassed of my style and clothing choices. She wears more girly stuff. Things you see in a Bebe or forever 21 catalog. I'm more of lets say either simple like jeans and tank top or very Tokyo/shinjuku (casual top, leggings with pom poms, furry boots, etc)
1) Daily? zero.
2) I am happy right now, I dont mind getting noticed or not
3) They are only annoying when they hit on me or is pressed
4) That is fine with me
5) i dont usually have weird experiences with fans. But I had one that told me he will buy an 8x10 if my number was the back. I told him I wasnt pressed on getting that money and told him to keep on walking.
I ignore it. and I use their negativity to motivate me. And besides, all those bullies prob live horrible lives and are taking it out of me. Also, most of them are druggies or single young mothers, while I am still in school and being successful. So I have no hard feeling towards them. Just know there is always light at the end of the tunnel
No smart or unique thoughts? Excuse me, its 2011, like I said people can date who ever the hell they want, I don't care. And I don't care about that percentage. You like what you like, I'm not going to say or judge.
