WWE SmackDown star returning soon with a slight gimmick change

WWE SmackDown star Xia Li is set to the ring soon.

Tonight on Friday Night SmackDown, Li was shown in a backstage segment. She noted how she used to serve to protect others but now she will protect herself.

Li hasn’t appeared on television since February. Lia previously wrestled as part of the NXT brand and then was moved up to work dark matches and house shows last July. She made her SmackDown debut in December with a superhero-like gimmick where she would shoot lightning during her entrance.

Despite a lot of hype for her main roster debut, she hasn’t done much outside of wrestling Natalya on TV and a couple of dark matches. Her appearance this week seemed to be somewhat of a reset ahead of her in-ring return.
