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.
I honestly forgot about Mandy & Sonya and the Riott Squad. They could have replaced Nia & Tamina and Beth & Natalya with those two, then have the Riott Squad win to kind of redeem them and build them back up as a legitimate group in the women's division.

I dont see anything in them. I guess they do their annoying ginmick well because they annoy the hell out of me lol. But, they are one of a few female tag teams. So someone had to win the belts...

They're trash but Peyton Royce is STUPID sexy. That alone is enough for her weekly presence. Watch her entrance and just skip her match lol.

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

The IIconics are fantastic, got way more personality than most of the women's roster, the fact people treat them like Marmite is a credit to their talent and fantastic looks.

Was so delighted for them, one of the highlights of the night.

I don't see them having singles success for a good while but their strength is they are as real of a tag team as it gets in that women's division. So yes let a real tag team hold the titles.

Sasha, Bayley and Nia are all way more singles-driven. Phoenix might be a limited return and Natty get's her moments helping develop talent moving up to the main roster.

Also secretly quite delighted because if Vince had made his mind up on the SD title sooner, it could so easily have been Sonya and Mandy in place of the girls last night.

I'm actually so happy they are the second holders of the WTT's. Even if it's a short reign, you can't take that away from them.

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

I think they're decent heel jobbers. Not detestable enough to be actual good heels, they're perfectly suited to the role that they have them play which is essentially like the female, tag team equivalent of a Heath Slater in the old days. Come out, talk some smack, get their ass kicked. That's what their role has been ever since coming up to the main roster until the past few weeks apparently where it was decided they'd beat Bayley and Sasha clean out of nowhere, and then have the tag titles put on them... Literally like when they made Jinder world champion. That I do not get. Up until then I kind of liked the act, as I do think they're funny/annoying in good measure.

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

They sort of remind me of Edge and Christian. Not talent wise as there’s no comparison and they’re not as funny, but more in that where they fit in with the women’s talent they have. If they could get someone to play the Gerwitz to them like he did to E&C I think we could get some pretty entertaining stuff. But I understand completely why they are marmite, they need some more polish on the characters and of course in ring. But I see a lot of promise there still, and handled right they can make these tag belts with better writing and more creative angles and segments ala E&C. Hell even Laycool.

Both of them are straight up trash, Peyton especially. Bellas 2.0, both of them can fuck off.

I "get" them.

They're annoying as f*** and can't wrestle. They are perfect to troll the WWE Universe.

They canít wrestle to save their lives, and their voices are actual nails on an actual chalkboard.
