WWE Raw: 5 Shockers & Surprises from this week’s episode (May 27, 2019)
#4 Another loss for The IIconics
Since winning the Women’s Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania 35, The IIconics have been victims of terrible booking. Fans were glad that the duo won the titles, but now would be hoping that they lose it to some other team who can carry it better.
Last week, The IIconics teamed up in a losing effort against Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, and Nikki Cross. They looked to avenge the loss from last week with a challenge to Becky Lynch and Nikki Cross. Cross had a good showing once again which will definitely help her grow on the main roster after being overlooked for some months.
In another surprising booking, Lynch took the win over Peyton Royce with the Man-Handle Slam. While it makes sense for WWE to let Lynch take the pins as she is the Women’s Champion, THe IIconics are certainly losing ground now.
The IIconics have yet to defend their championships against legitimate challengers for the sole reason of keeping the titles on them, but they cannot build any credibility. These are the types of shocking bookings that result in many top talents leaving the company.
