I may be alone, but I think they're fantastic. They're supposed to be whiny, high pitched, annoying mean girls. They play it to perfection.

They aren't the greatest wrestlers and I'm sure they won't hold the titles for too much longer, but they are the perfect chickenshit heel team even the way they won it the titles was chickenshit. Better having the heels win it and having babyfaces chase it.

Also could mean Io/Kairi win the titles from them leading to a feud with them and Bayley/Sasha. Just maybe.

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

I totally agree.I think that they have the wrong "heat". In fact, that isn't heat. I just don't watch them. They are annoying to the point of being unwatchable. They suck in the ring. On another note, here is another thing that I don't understand...everyone who defends them says, "They're heels, you're supposed to hate them!". They are not very good as characters. This is also on the WWE writing team. The whole "we were friends before WWE, scratched, clawed, blah, blah..." story is for a babyface team. Why were they crying after winning the belts? Do they even understand their own characters? Pull a cowardly act and react like they were in a Kofi Kingston-esque position? This is why hardly anyone is over. Anyhow, they are typical bitchy heels because that is the only way WWE books women. Alexa, Carmella, LayCool, and even Charlotte. I wouldn't care if they went back down under.

I'm apathetic towards them honestly.

Peyton's breathtaking selfies aside, I can take em or leave em.

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

What's there to say really lets look at the women's tag division and for the record I think they're pretty good


Riot Squad jobbers with no character development

Fire and Desire higher rated jobbers with a little more character development

Tamina and Nia does this even need an explanation?

Sasha and Bayley well the only full time legitimate team that gives them a run for there money


just for laughs I'll throw in the Sky Pirates, I think because they speak poor english they will struggle on the main roster although who knows maybe a stable including Asuka might be a hit

I'm not a fan of the Iconics, but its was fun to see them win, because I'm not a fan of any of the teams in that match and it was fun seeing a surprise.

So the whole, "you hate them so they're doing a good job" isn't an argument.
WTF is a "satisfying payoff"?? You want them to do a triple moonsault onto a table or something?

This is what workrate marks don't understand about wrestling. WWE is entertainment oriented, not work rate oriented. It has always been this way. Look, charisma, character display and a connection to the audience will always trump wrestling ability.

and for the record, they aren't even bad wrestlers.

They’re alright their backstory being friends for so long that’s interesting but as performers they don’t do it for me.

I find them annoying as hell. Pretty, yes. But the yelling is like fingernails on a chalkboard.
