In recent times, Xia Li has been one of the most dominating and intriguing women performers on the Black & Gold brand, and it seems like she will get yet another shot at the NXT Women’s Title in the near future.
In the match tonight, she came all by herself without Tian Sha, but if she gets a title shot again in the future, she should consider bringing Tian Sha along for a better chance of winning the title.
