In 2014 he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF).
During his Shaw days, most of his movies were directed by legendary swords fighting director, Cheh Chang, and he only had one movie with Shaw's queen swords woman, Pei-Pei Cheng, of Wo hu cang long (2000), in Jin yan zi (1968), the one and only movie an actor has top-billing credit and a more important role over her.
In 1981, Wang was charged with murder in Taiwan, but was freed due to lack of evidence.
Gained super stardom status as the "One-armed Swordsman" ('Du bi shuang xiong (1976)'), the first HK movie to reach 1 Million Dollar Box office record. He continued to act as the One Armed Swordsman or the One Armed Boxer roles in a few more movies, including one with Japan's famous Blind Swordman.
After "The Chinese Boxer" ('Long hu dou (1970)'), he broke his contract with Shaw (HK) and went over to Taiwan where he acted and directed most of his movies there, mostly for Golden Harvest (which later produced Bruce Lee) and independent companies. Despite that he lost his legal battle and was banned from making films in HK, he gained more fame and fortune as an independent. Unfortunately most of those films are not available now. Most of those with Shaw Brothers were released recently.
His films set new box office records in Hong Kong for 4 consecutive years, a record no one ever had until today in Hong Kong and possibly in other countries too. One armed Swordsman(1967) The Golden Swallow(1968) Return of the One-armed Swordsman(1969) and The Chinese Boxer(Hammer of God, 1970).
Started his career as a contract actor with Shaw Brothers (HK), probably the only Shaw actor to gain a lead role from the very 1st movie and became the 1st Screen Hero of modern Chinese Cinema as well as the most popular and famous Chinese actor from 1965 until Bruce Lee's appearance in 1971.
