"We're not like that" - Released WWE Superstar discloses why she didn't join her husband in Tony Khan's AEW following their departure

A former WWE star has detailed why they didn
A large number of former WWE Superstars have joined AEW over the years

Former WWE Superstar Mia Yim has opened up about why she didn't end up following her husband Keith Lee to AEW. The performers were both released from their WWE contracts in 2021.

The wrestling world was shocked to find out that both Lee and Yim had departed the sports entertainment company in November 2021. They were released along with the likes of Karrion Kross, Ember Moon and Nia Jax. It wasn't all bad for the duo, as they had been engaged since February 2021, and eventually married in February 2022.

Speaking in an interview with "Straight Talk Wrestling," Mia Yim explained why she didn't end up joining her husband in All Elite Wrestling. Yim stated that she and Keith are two separate brands.

“So the thing that I always tell people, even though me and Keith [Lee] are together, we are our own separate brands. I never wanted to be one of those couples that are like, ‘If you book my husband, you have to book me’ or vice versa, or we’re a package deal. We’re not like that, so it’s like babe, you go do what you gotta go do.” (H/T Inside the Ropes).
