#4. The IIconics weren't always best friends
While Billie Kay and Peyton Royce are inseparable these days, things weren't always that way. In fact, both Kay and Royce were once fierce rivals. While attending school, they were both obsessed with professional wrestling, but instead of drawing on their common interests to cultivate a friendship, they instead saw each other as competition.
Billie Kay told Lilian Garcia, "It's funny because we didn't like each other, but we never actually spoke, so there was this silent rivalry between us."
She describes an occurrence when Peyton Royce was ahead of her in line for a WWE meet and greet. Kay didn't like the fact that Royce was ahead of her and shot her future best friend some unfriendly glares. The same would happen again, only in reverse, as the two would exchange jealous glances over and over again.
When Peyton Royce joined the same wrestling academy that Billie Kay was already attending, the two actually began speaking and hit it off instantly becoming the best friends we all know them to be today.
"I really feel like fate intertwined our lives and was like, 'You two are going to be together forever and are going to change the world.' I was like, 'I'm on board. I'm on board for life.'"Published 16 Apr 2019, 19:17 IST
