‘The Protector’ came to the aid of the former WWE SmackDown Women’s champion, Naomi, who found herself in an odd situation when Sonya Deville, Shayna Baszler, and Natalya were so close to attacking her.

Eventually, Li made her way out and blew everyone’s mind. The entrance was so cool that the WWE Universe couldn’t control their excitement. The music, the lightning, and everything in between was perfect with Xia Li’s entrance tonight.

Xia Li impressed everyone with her entrance on WWE SmackDown

Li’s entrance was so cool that some fans compared it with the legendary game, Mortal Kombat. It was clear that the moment when lightning struck, the fans really couldn’t hold their excitement.

WWE backstage interview Ryan Pappolla classified Li’s entrance as the “coolest of all time”, which is a big statement in itself, given WWE has witnessed so many cool entrances over the years.

“This Just In: Xia Li has the coolest entrance of all-time.”

And Ryan is not alone because the entire WWE Universe sides with him, classifying Li’s entrance as the best ever on WWE SmackDown.

“Xia Li!!! Damn, that’s a great entrance!!!”

“Xia Li has debuted on Smackdown. She has some pretty wild CGI lightning for her entrance on TV. She came to the aid of Naomi”

Naomi, who was saved by Li’s debut, also took to Twitter and let the WWE Universe know what she feels about the entrance of ‘The Protector’.

WWE chairman Vince McMahon would like to capitalize on the fact that the WWE Universe instantly fell in love with Xia Li and put her into a major feud moving forward.

Xia Li is the first Chinese woman to ever compete in a WWE ring which makes her one of a kind on the WWE’s roster and this might catapult and attract more Chinese wrestlers to Vince McMahon’s company.
