Billie is superior to Peyton in-ring IMO

They're supposed to be annoying girly heels and I think they're good at it

I don't get them either. They just yip and prattle on like yapping dogs.

Its more "I want to mute the TV because I can't handle the screeching" heat than anything else.

Everyone thinks Peyton is hot, and girls should be eye candy is all I can come up with? I don’t see that but each to their own, some people think Charlotte is hot.

I don’t find their accents annoying they’re just Australian.

The gimmick is just to be as annoying as possible as far as I can tell.

Ah, the Rockers/Shawn Michaels treatment.

I don't have a huge issue with them. Their personalities come off as grating (I suppose that's by design), but I would like to see them get better in the ring. Bully Ray tweeted out last night that they genuinely seemed happy to win the belts. I thought that was interesting.

Re: Am I the only one who doesn't get The IIconics?

Honestly, I'd take the IIconics over Nia and Tamina. I like their gimmick and even though they aren't the best wrestlers in the division they are great characters and are the only women that come off as a real team. Besides, them being weak individually works well in a tag team setting where they can work together and use underhanded tactics to beat their opponents.

I was also hoping for Bayley and Sasha to lose so they could finally separate and go back to being single competitors as they should. A heel Sasha would be a perfect opponent for Becky Lynch.

I don't know why people say this. Both Sonya and Mandy and The Riott Squad have been teaming longer on the main roster than The IIconics. For all their time on the main roster they have been in a tag team, how is that not a real team?

In addition both teams are more talented than The IIconics, yet, both of those teams were regulated to the pre show, along with Asuka, while these screaming untalented jobbers won the titles.

Re: Am I the only one who doesn't get The IIconics?

Peyton had a great match in NXT with Ruby Riot, so I do believe she has ability. It's actually one of my favourite Ruby matches.

Mostly people supported the idea of them winning the tag belts because... they're 100% a tag team, win/loss record be damned. I questioned the idea of them becoming champions without being built up first on account of them being jobbed out in 2018 - truth is few care about details like that in the wider fanbase.

I see potential in them and want to like them, I hated seeing them buried last year but the fact they failed to deliver any time they did get spotlighted was almost as frustrating. They just won the titles at Mania, that's a big vote of confidence but they need to prove they deserve it - really, really wanting to be champions since high school =/= deserving to be. We shall see how they do now.

Re: Am I the only one who doesn't get The IIconics?

Their way of talking and their light-hearted, goofy humour is just the Aussie way I think they have more personality than half the women there which is way more interesting to me than how "hot" someone is or their in-ring technique. I watched WrestleMania at a pub and IIconics winning the tag titles got the biggest reaction of the whole event!
