Wang first served under General-in-Chief He Jin, but resigned and lived as a commoner after He Jin was killed by the Ten Attendants. He rose through the ranks in the following years and soon became the Grand Administrator of Henei. During the campaign against Dong Zhuo, Wang led an army to attack Dong Zhuo from the north but was defeated at the Battle of Heyang Ford. When Dong Zhuo sent Humu Ban, who married a younger sister of Wang Kuang, and other scholars to negotiate a truce, Wang Kuang ordered them to be executed. Years later, the remaining relatives of Humu Ban killed Wang in revenge.
In Luo Guanzhong's historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, at the Battle of Hulao Pass, Wang ordered his general Fang Yue to challenge Lü Bu. Fang was defeated and slain by Lü after five rounds.
