Vince McMahon is always looking for talents to push to the moon, and the Chairman of WWE has an eye on potential main-eventers. McMahon has possibly found two new stars for the Women’s Division, in the form of former Tag Team Champion Peyton Royce and recent NXT call-up Bianca Belair.
Bianca Belair has always been pegged as a future star, given her performance in the Royal Rumble earlier this year.
However, Royce’s name comes as a major surprise, as Royce and Billie Kay have often been overlooked and used mostly in comedic roles. Royce has tremendous wrestling skills and even managed to land herself an NXT Women’s Championship match a few years ago.
McMahon was told to be high on the duo, along with SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley, in a recent meeting, according to Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
“He did talk forever about how much he loves Bayley and her new persona and that he sees Peyton Royce and Bianca Belair as singles stars.”
Belair moved to the main roster back in April, teaming up with her husband Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins. She hasn’t done much since then, but a push could be on the cards with Sasha Banks capturing the RAW Women’s Title.
A singles run for Royce could result in the break-up of IIconics, who have largely impressed with their chemistry together. It will be interesting to see if the company splits the popular duo in the coming months.
