Boa, a former Tian Sha member, signed with WWE in 2016 after a tryout in Shanghai. Initially known as Big Boa, he was part of the first group of Chinese talents signed by WWE. Boa’s NXT TV debut was during the 2019 Breakout Tournament, where he faced Jordan Myles. Despite his seven years with the company, Boa faced repeated breaks from wrestling. Recently, he was released from his WWE contract, joining the list of talents let go by the company.

The release of Boa was part of a series of cuts by WWE, including Drew Gulak and others. The decision was made by top WWE executives like Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and William Regal. Boa’s final match was in a non-televised NXT event in December 2023.

Drew Gulak’s release surprised many, given his tenure and contributions to special projects. Valentina Feroz, once a regular on NXT TV, was also released. Some of the wrestlers let go had never even competed in a match for WWE, such as Darrell Mason, Keyshawn Leflore, Ezekiel Balogun, Julian Baldi, and Vlad Pavlenko. Others, like Emma Diaz, Trey Bearhill (previously known as Triller Bucktrot), and Kiyah Saint (previously known as Harleigh White), had limited matches under their belts.

These recent departures follow the release of other notable talents like Jinder Mahal, Cameron Grimes, and Xia Li.
