The former NXT superstar is none other than the hugely talented Xia Li. Li had been in top form since January after going through a transformation.

This dominant return gave Li an opportunity to challenge Raquel González for the NXT Women’s Championship. But unfortunately, Li lost. But Li got rewarded for her impressive performances with a call-up to the main roster.

She is the first Chinese woman to ever compete in a WWE ring. Xia Li got drafted to WWE SmackDown during the 2021 WWE Draft, but is yet to make her main roster debut.
