Xia Li is finally set to make her SmackDown debut next week on Dec. 10.
Li was called up to the main roster and placed on the blue brand during the 2021 WWE Draft in October. Despite not making her official debut since the draft, several vignettes have aired on her behalf. The most recent promos are depicting her as a comic book character as “The Protector” who hates vultures as she defends the vulnerable and destroys the oppressors.
In NXT, Li was a prominent member of the Tian Sha stable along with Boa and was led by Mei Ying. Her last on-screen match was in July where she lost to then-NXT Women’s Champion Raquel Gonzalez. Since then she has had multiple dark matches prior to SmackDown up until October last defeating Aliyah.
Li has worked in WWE since the first Mae Young Classic in 2017.
Which “vulture” do you think Xia Li will go after first once she makes her debut?
