I dunno if Journey to the West (1998 versionor whatever year it was) counts as Wuxia (this is just an example) but it looks really fake. (I still love it though).
I don't really watch many recent chinese shows because I used to watch them cos my grandpa did (and we don't live near him anymore) and internet games+revision is taking over my life.

So no, Journey to the West is not Wuxia. Lol.
Its stuff like 射雕英雄傳, 天龍八部 etc.
