Li signed with WWE in 2017 but didn't make her NXT TV debut until February 2019. Her final appearance on the brand came on July 20th when she challenged Raquel Gonzalez for the NXT Championship. In the two months since then, Li has been wrestling dark matches ahead of SmackDown tapings.

Xia joins Hit Row, Austin Theory, and Aliyah as NXT talents drafted to the main roster during this year's draft.
