Wen Yang was known for his toughness and courage, especially when fighting to storm Sima Shi's military camp. His courage was even compared to Zhao Yun from Shu. Wen Qin and Guanqiu Jian, Zheng Yi, Lu Xuan, and Zhang Xiu are pretending to ask the Empress Dowager and proposing the 11 counts of Sima Shi, starting in Shouchun and crusting Sima Shi. Guanqiu Jian once joined Deng Ai to join the army, but Deng Ai killed the messenger and ordered to lead more than 10,000 people in an emergency, they are cross the bridge in Lejia City and meet Sima Shi, Guanqiu Jian ordered Wen Qin to against Deng Ai.
At the time, Sima Shi secretly led the armies to Lejia City from Ruyang, Wen Qin saw that the soldiers suddenly arrived and did not know what to do. Wen Yang was only 18 years old, he was the courageous and gentle. When Wen Yang told his father to continue the battle, Wen Qin led the troops to attacked, separate the second road with Wen Yang and stay up all night with Sima Shi. This revolt was finally foiled by Sima Shi, Wen Qin who suffered defeat was forced to surrender to Wu. Wen Qin and Zhuge Dan who had been supported by Wu declared war on the Sima clan which was then led by Sima Zhao.
With the war going on, the ration of Wu's army was thinning and there was an upheaval between Wen Qin and Zhuge Dan, causing Wen Qin to die in his hand. As a result, Wen Yang and his younger brother Wen Hu intended to avenge his father, but failed so that both of them were forced to surrender to Sima Zhao. With the Wen brothers joining the Sima forces, Wu's morale declined and finally the Shouchun Rebellion was extinguished. From now on, Wen Yang is served under Wei and later Jin Dynasty. When he succeeded in overthrowing the Xianbei from the north, Wen Yang is not really a ruthless and did not tried to killed anyone.
Wen Yang bid farewell to Jin emperor Sima Yan, but he followed these actions and respect his own conditions until Sima Yan later died of illness. So Wen Yang did not recognize it when he wanted to continued fight with his troops from the next battle, but does not deserve to hear all sorts of neglected sounds and not being defeated. In fact, he could tell them to give up those rights and really can't retain his own morality. But later on, Wen Yang was executed with all family members after being slandered by Sima Yao, the grandson of Zhuge Dan, that Wen Yang was about to carry out a rebellion with Yang Jun, a former Jin employee.
