WWE announced on Thursday in Shanghai, China that Bin Wang has signed a developmental deal with the company, and Wang is scheduled to report to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
"It is an honor to be the first-ever Chinese talent in WWE history,” Wang told WWE.com. “There are no fans in the world that show the same passion as the WWE Universe, and I look forward to training and developing my skills so I can perform for them in the future."
Triple H told ESPN.com's Darren Rovell that Wang could be the key to growing the company's popularity in China.
“If things work out, we think having Bin would lead to people here talking about the product more. Once the NBA found Yao Ming, they didn't even need to find a second or third or fourth guy. Once fans got hooked, they followed the same stars as other fans did. He would open the door for them to learn more about our other guys like John Cena and Seth Rollins.”
WWE also announced a partnership with China's PPTV to distribute both RAW and SmackDown.
