Xia Li finally made her debut on a previous episode of Friday Night Smackdown last year, where she saved Naomi from Shayna Baszler and Sonya Deville. Many fans ended up loving Li’s debut as well. Then things took a turn for the former NXT Superstar.

However, Xia Li only made her in-ring debut back in February. She ended up defeating Natalya in a short match. After that, she was absent for a while until recently.

Xia Li returned during this past week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown. She also turned heel during the episode. According to Wrestling News.co, Vince McMahon feels that some talent are being miscast right now. This is why he will turn multiple stars into babyfaces and heels soon.

This is the latest example of plans suddenly changing in WWE. WrestlingNews.co was told that fans should expect more turns for several stars in the coming weeks as Vince McMahon feels that some of the talent is being miscast right now.


We will have to wait and see which WWE Superstars will end up turning heel and face. With Rhea Ripley turning heel recently, it is likely just the beginning.
