Flashback? There are all kinds of ways to present wrestlers and many times it is with a rather specific gimmick. You might see something that is more or less serious, but there is often an idea there that is different than others. That idea can often need to be tweaked though, and that might be the case again, as a WWE star may be needing to change things up entirely.

SmackDown’s Xia Li has released a video on Twitter showing her training. During the video, there are glimpses of a woman with her face painted like Tian Sha, Li’s former character in NXT. This could be a hint that Li will be returning to her old gimmick after she was drafted to SmackDown in October 2021. Since then, she has only wrestled one televised match, defeating Natalya in February.

This might be a hint. Check out Li’s training video:

Opinion: I mean, why not? I don’t think you could make Li’s time on SmackDown that much worse so far, so why not see what else she can do? Throw her out there and see what she can make work in another character. As has been the case before, I will never understand WWE calling these people up and having nothing for them to do. You saw enough in them to give them a contract and a promotion, but not enough to do something with them?

What do you think of Li? Would this change be an upgrade? Let us know in the comments below.
