Xia Li Reveals Her WWE SmackDown Vignettes Were Based On Her Real Life

Li debuted on SmackDown last week

Xia Li has revealed that the vignette aired on WWE SmackDown about her, prior to her debut, was a story about her actual real life. 

Li finally debuted on SmackDown last week, coming to Naomi's assistance against Sonya Deville, Shayna Baszler and Natalya, after weeks of hyping up her arrival from WWE NXT.

A creative, comic-book style vignette has aired on SmackDown promoting her arrival, and Li says the story is based on her real experiences.

Speaking with Graham Matthews of Daily DDT, Li said: "They asked about my background and about my family, so I told them my story. That vignette is a real story about my real life. I’m really happy they put my real story on TV and there’s a lot of feeling there.

"When they [aired] it, I cried. If I have that feeling, they will have that same feeling. Also, I had a dream, like a superhero dream, when I was a child, so this is kind of my dream come true with a superhero dream on TV. I’m very happy that they have this whole package for me and they did an amazing job.

"I’m surprised they did this whole package for me. I didn’t know. I found out at the same time as you. When it came up, I’m sitting in the back like, ‘Oh my god, so good!’ They did an amazing job. I really appreciate that."
