This week on Monday Night RAW, The IIconics lost to The Riott Squad in tag team action as a result of which Peyton Royce and Billie Kay had to disband.
While the dissolution may be an emotional blow to many, in reality, it’s only the beginning of Royce’s big singles push on the red brand.
On PWInsider Elite Audio, Mike Johnson reported that Peyton’s singles push doesn’t essentially indicate Billie’s immediate exit from the company.
As previously reported, Vince McMahon sees big things in Royce and Bianca Belair which leads to the notion that both women will be positioned as key Superstars going forward.
“I was told by several people that Peyton Royce is earmarked for a singles push, they’ve decided that they wanted to push her, and this is not the case of Billie Kay’s leaving the company or anything like that.”
It wasn’t until Monday afternoon that Mr. McMahon had decided to pull the trigger on breaking up The IIconics. The bizarre fact is that WWE didn’t even advertise the breakup match beforehand.
“I was told that it’s just they want to push Peyton Royce and try and go in a different direction with her.”
“As you noticed, Bille Kay kind of got wiped out on RAW Underground, so my guess perhaps they are going to take her off tv, or put her on SmackDown or somewhere else, but I am told that the reason this happened was not some immediate punishment or immediate issue.”
“The decision was made that Peyton Royce was one of the people who was going to be pushed going further, and this was their means to an end.”
Royce’s immediate future may be extremely bright but it remains to be seen what WWE does with Kay. Even as a tag team, it was The Venus Fly Trap who received more attention than The Femme Fatale.
