A per Fightful, WWE filed for five new ring names on December 24. These include a trio of designations thought to be for the trio of Xia Li, Boa and Karen Q.
The five names WWE have applied for the rights to are Nash Carter, Wes Lee, Tian Sha, Shi Hun and Shi Zui. The latter trifector of labels are those speculated to be for the Chinese duo who have gone through a career overhaul on the black and gold brand in the past few months.
The effort to remake Xia Li, Boa and Karen Q has involved several vignettes of Li and Boa being punished by their wise old sage before the elder was attacked by a figure thought to be Q. Prior to the miniature movies, Xia Li’s bouts had been disrupted by Boa and the aged mentor who sent the graphic of a dragon around the Capitol Wrestling Center.
WWE’s filing for the description read:
