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

I do kinda like them more so in NXT when they were more serious and did less comedy.

I wish they would improve in the ring though they regressed a lot in that regard especially Peyton she was one of the better women in NXT, since her boob job her ringwork was never the same.

IIconics vs. Carmella and Naomi?

That smells like a pre-show match. There aren't any other face tag teams on either brand, unless Asuka gets a partner, so this tag title run is gonna suck harder than a Kardashian in an NBA locker room.

Isn’t Asuka already Naomi’s partner?

Their whole shtick reminds me of an old sitcom called Laverne and Shirley. They're loud and obnoxious and are very over the top in their mannerisms.

You know what after watching Raw exclusive and seeing how hilarious they are in or out of character I'm inclined to actually like them now.

Exactly. I hate it when people reply saying "well if you're annoyed they're doing their job" when you clearly mean annoying as in you can't bare to watch them or listen to them to the point where you wanna change the fucking channel.

For example Lacey Evans walking out and leaving is annoying but not channel changer annoying, Sami Zayn acts obnoxiously annoying as a heel but i enjoy watching it.

When The IIconics open their mouths and proceed to talk in their over the top nails on a chalkboard cartoony aussie accents my ears almost begin to bleed and i just wanna mute it or change the channel.

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

I will admit they are more attractive that they are good wrestlers. But they are both fucking hilarious! If you follow either of them on Instagram their stories when together are very funny. Especially when they were in NXT. They used to wake up wrestlers sleeping in their car being by knocking on their windows and saying hello all high pitchy like they do.

IDK, I am entertained by them.

You know there is a tag team in NXT, probably the best tag team in WWE.

I love them now. Delusional heels and they sell the gimmick really well. I don't think they're the world's greatest in the ring but I'm appreciating the character work.

The IIconics are terrible and the most untalented team on the main roster along with Nia and Tamina. But this is WWE where often now if you are terrible you get pushed while the people with actual talent get held back.
Count me as one of the 3 then.
When Peyton is allowed to perform she is actually a very credible and quality wrestler. Her debut matches in NXT prove this before she joined up with Billie to form the iiconics.

Heels getting people to dislike them is a good thing. Go away heat is iwc made up bollocks.
