Re: Why do so many here hate the llconics?

Most of my dislike for them is jokey cos they're Australian and I'm from New Zealand and our countries have a rivalry I feel the same way about Buddy Murphy, LOL.

They're ok really, I don't hate or love them. Their exaggerated accents make my ears bleed though.

Awful wrestlers.
Nails on a chalkboard promos.
Terrible diva gimmick.

What's to like? They're 2010 divas in a 2019 women's division. "Comedy" joke wrestlers (I don't find them funny anyway) have their place, but not as champions.

Re: Why do so many here hate the llconics?

To each their own I guess? I enjoy them, more than most probably, but I can see why people hate them, they are the type of character you either love for their silliness and over the top personas or you hate because they are portrayed as a joke and they are not very good in the ring. But I would rather have them featured on tv more than other women who may be a bit better in the ring but have like zero personality.

If you look long enough, you'll find people here who hate anyone. You could have Jesus himself wrestling and people would complain he keeps kicking out.

Re: Why do so many here hate the llconics?

Hate is probably a bit much, i imagine most just don't take them seriously as wrestlers.

So a 2019 women's division can't have variety? Glamorous women who are popular for their beauty and character have always been a mainstay in this industry. The division has more variety now than ever. Crazy girls, workrate girls, different ethnicities, fat girls, small girls, divas, veterans, lesbians, Bayley. What is wrong with some diva characters?

I'll take being entertained by Carmella or Iconics trolling the audience over Becky's laughable attempt at channeling Steve Austin and me being told to get behind that. Or Charlotte's nauseating, overbearing presence on well... everything.

At this point, diva characters are a breath of fresh air among the massive pool of"nerdy girl next door", anime impersonations, tomboys and "rocker chicks".

I literally said it's okay to have these kinds of people on the roster (even if I don't care about them). Just not as champions or put in positions where I'm supposed to take them seriously.

They're comedy jobbers and that's okay.

Re: Why do so many here hate the llconics?

I don't see the issue with the IIconics being champions. When it comes to mic skills and character work they're right up there with Becky and Alexa, ring wise they're average but they definietly aren't bad or terrible wrestlers. The only problem I have with them being champions is that Sasha and Bayley didn't have a lengthy enough reign and I really wanted to see them defend their titles on NxT. Sasha and Bayley having a longer more successful title reign could have done a lot for the titles.

From what I've seen of them on NxT the IIconics are actually pretty good, but on the main roster they never really got a chance since they were just booked to be comedic jobbers which makes it impossible for anyone to take them seriously or invest in their matches or segments. Hopefully they are booked similarly to their NxT counterparts, and in the ned, it's still a much better alternative than Nia and Tamina, two women nobody can care for regardless of what WWE does with them.

I don't hate them visually. But I'm also not going to seek out their tag matches. I'd rather a 1 on 1 Peyton match
