The 24-year old Tian Bing was the first wrestler who hails from mainland China to compete for WWE. Tian was signed to the sports-entertainment company in the summer of 2016 and he made his NXT TV debut in that same summer in a first-round matchup in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament.

Jason Cheng, real-name Cheng Yuxiang along with Tian Bing was one of seven Chinese athletes signed to NXT developmental deals in 2016. Yuxiang made his NXT TV debut in 2017 and throughout the year into 2018 he competed at NXT house shows on the Florida circuit.
Gabriel Ealy of the former NXT tag team 'The Ealy Brothers' was also released.
