Re: Why do so many here hate the llconics?

To be honest I'm starting to enjoy them lately, they're like the female Edge and Christian. Before someone shoots me I'm not comparing, it's just the same obnoxious over the top silliness.

All Time
Steve Austin, Chris Jericho, Undertaker, Mankind, Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, Batista, Cm Punk, The Rock, Bret Hart, Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero

Current
Everyone is buried.

Because they're just not good?

They're OK in their role as lower card talents but they certainly aren't championship material and shouldn't be holding those titles.

They're divas and don't act like men. Current fans want the women to wrestle like men, look like men and act like men. Otherwise they are are talentless.

I won't argue with people that they aren't great in ring workers, but again their chemistry together make for some truly fun moments. They also have fantastic facial/body language. Some will call it cartoony or too over the top, but thats exactly what I love about them.

The IIconics winning the tag team belts was one of my favorite moments at WM35, possibly even more than Becky's win because it was unexpected.

Apart from the fact that the internet, a message board and hate itself simply go along very well, you already gave a reason why.

Because all many smarks care about is workrate. They don't want to see actual personality get in the way of a flip.

A champion should either be able to go in the ring or make stories interesting, preferably both but being average in one and above average in the other is enough.

The IIconics are terrible in the ring. Among the worst women in the company.

And their segments? They can deliver words, but it's always long-winded and none of it ever gets over. It's just crickets. It's boring. It's derivative. We've seen it a million times.

It's basically the same case with Carmella last year, but somehow worse.

They're a joke and will make the titles a joke fast unless they're promptly beaten.
