WWE has announced a women’s tag match for the WWE Payback pre-show featuring the team of Liv Morgan & Ruby Riott taking on the former Women’s Tag Team Women’s Champions Billie Kay and Peyton Royce, The IIconics.
The IIconics and the two former members of the Riott Squad have been clashing in backstage segments and in the ring as well. The bad blood between them began when the IIconics began taunting Riott who was estranged from Morgan about not having any friends.
Morgan returned shortly after the IIconics began taunting Riott and the two began having singles matches and tag matches with the IIconics. The Payback match could be the decisive match of this storyline.
Peyton Royce has since commented on the match, warning Morgan that Riott is not to be trusted.
If the Payback match between the IIconics and Morgan and Riott is the blow-off for their feud, one of the teams could then move on towards challenging for the Women’s Tag Team Championships.
One-half of the current champions, Bayley, tweeted regarding the news that she and her partner Sasha Banks will take on the winners. This presumes that Bayley and Banks retain successfully during their own Payback match against Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
