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.
