Peyton Royce has reflected on how she felt after becoming a WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion at WrestleMania 35.

Billie Kay and Peyton Royce defeated Bayley and Sasha Banks, Beth Phoenix and Natalya, and Nia Jax and Tamina to win the Women’s Tag Team titles. The IIconics held the titles for 120 days before losing them to Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross on RAW in August 2019.

Speaking in an interview with SK Wrestling’s Rick Ucchino, Peyton Royce became emotional when she was asked about the title victory.

“Yeah, I’m tearing up right now. I’ll never not be so emotional about that night. I have the poster right up above me. I look at it every day. I have the Women’s Tag Title right here with the side plates on it.
“That night I will look back and I will always have the most pure and wonderful memories from that night and I hope I never lose that feeling because that was literally my dreams coming true. I still can’t believe, I still have to pinch myself that it even happened, that we did that on that stage with those women in the same ring. It was just wild.”
