Jimmy Wang Yang WWE update

Oct 29, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

Former WWE Superstar Jimmy Wang Yang (James Yun) is reportedly back with the company.

Yang started working as a producer for the RAW brand this past Monday, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. There’s no word on if this is a trial run for Yang, or if he’s been hired full-time.

Yang had runs with WCW, WWE, TNA, AJPW, and ROH, among others. He last signed with WWE in 2006, and was released on April 22, 2010.

Yang’s daughter, Jazzy Yang, currently wrestles on the indies, often making appearances with her father. It will be interesting to see if this leads to a WWE tryout for Jazzy.

As we’ve noted, WWE also hired Shawn Daivari and WWE Hall of Famer Molly Holly to work as producers in the last year.

Stay tuned for more.

    “It will be interesting to see if this leads to a WWE tryout?” Come on. Wrestlers never get WWE opportunities based on who their fathers or other family members are. Especially female wrestlers. Just doesn’t happen.

    I was wondering why they randomly had a woman have a competitive match on Smackdown this past Friday. Makes sense now.
