re: Am I the only one who doesn't get The IIconics?
Nope, they are legitimately fucking awful in every except for Peyton eye-candy. They never impressed in NXT and are even worse on the main roster.
Nails on a chalkboard promos.
Super chickenshit diva gimmick.
Basically the embodiment of everything people hated about pre-revolution wwe women's wrestling. Bitchy eye candy and zero talent, they make Carmella look good in comparison and have absolutely no business holding titles so soon after they were created.
This is what people don't understand about heels. Getting people to dislike you as a champion is pointless unless you can wrestle and provide a satisfying payoff for the babyface. They can't, Carmella can't, Alexa can't, so they aren't good heels. Unless your job is to be hated in the build and then squashed (Alexa/Ronda at SS), but that rarely ever happens. So the whole, "you hate them so they're doing a good job" isn't an argument.
