Mika Iida is a new wrestler who was the last new wrestler to ever come out of NEO. In perhaps an odd bit of timing, she did not join the promotion until after it’s closing was announced on May 5, although it also coincided with her graduating from high school. She started training almost immediately for her debut, which came about 6 months after she began training in wrestling.
Iida made her official in-ring debut on November 21, 2010. Although she only appeared in a handful of matches before NEO closed at the end of 2010, she will continue wrestling in 2011 and will be a freelancer for the time being, although since NEO’s closing she has begun making regular appearances in Ice Ribbon and will likely continue to do so for the immediate future. She is also making appearances in most of, if not all the other main joshi promotions.
Iida is inactive as of August 2011 due to a right orbital bone fracture suffered during the 7/31/2011 WAVE event. It’s not known how long she’ll be out but likely will be at least a few months.
