Re: The IIIconics got a win!....against non WWE talent.
The story they're telling is the IIconics are unworthy champions who refuse to defend their titles against real competition, they're trying to get them jobber champ heat, why I don't know. They were already getting decent heat just from their promos. To properly get jobber champ heat you actually have to defend the titles and get dirty wins, like Jinder. If you don't ever actually get undeserved wins against superior competition then people aren't going to be desperate to see the titles off of you, they're just going to forget the titles exist.
Renee tried to sell the need to get the titles off of them immediately and Graves pointed out that there are no other tag teams, and Renee suggested that a makeshift tag team be formed to take the titles. This was ridiculous for a bunch of reasons including but not limited to Graves burying the actual other tag teams, the notion that any 2 random people should be able to beat the champs, and most importantly that jobber champs should be used to get a specific talent over and they literally have given no thought as to who that should be.
Why not Kabuki Warriors, or Bliss/Cross, or Fire and Desire, or Liv and Carmella? Could've even done Charlotte and Lacey, I'm sure they want to pad out Charlotte's resume some more, this keeps her on ppv, and slowly builds up Lacey.
Every day WWE makes it more and more clear they created these titles just to trick Sasha into re-signing.
