WWE Women’s Tag Team division witnessed the arrival of the IIconics on SmackDown in 2018. The duo went on to win the newly introduced Women’s Tag team Championship after defeating Bayley and Sasha Banks at WrestleMania 35 in a fatal four-way match, featuring two other teams.
Peyton Royce, one half of this incredibly resilient duo, met Billy Kay when both of them were in school. They pursued their wrestling career and ended up making their main roster debut together, as a team.
Despite having their identities morphed to represent one team, Royce continues to stand out as an individual wrestler. From being jobbers to becoming only the second team to win the Women’s Tag Team Championships, Royce’s WWE career is slowly being scripted towards greater achievements.
If booked well, Royce has the potential of moving up the roster ranks and see herself in individual Championship matches. However, that would happen only of the IIconics part way which seems highly unlikely.
Owing the possibilities, it is important to keep an eye on this bloossoming Superstar. Here are some of the facts about this Australian wrestler which you may find interesting.
