The Iconics are not funny and getting old

I went from really liking the Iconics but now I can't stand them. They've taken everything about their gimmick to such an exaggerated level. Adding "ICONIC" to the beginning of their entrance theme, their awful promos where they come out, mock the city and do these really drawn out comedy skits with animated facial expressions.

It isn't funny.... I thought back in NXT when they were running around backstage trying to persuade people to vote for them as NXT break out stars of the year, and before they turned everything up to a 10, I enjoyed them. Now I find it really hard to take them seriously or care about them, they behave like cartoon characters now at all times, it isn't subtle, it's done in a very annoying way that isn't enjoyable. Feel their act has become overexposed and they have become so unbearable to watch now due to WWE's booking.

They're certainly ripe for plucking.

They're mainly there for WWTP wankers, what did you expect?

Re: The Iconics are not funny and getting old

I still lowkey enjoy them somewhat, but the idea that they're champions is ridiculous and makes me annoyed.

That is my #1 problem with WWE. And, having stars on both shows - let alone both shows revolving around just a few stars every episode, every week, is causing overexposure.

You can have the greatest wrestler of all time, in every category, appear Monday and Tuesday every week for 1 month, and the act will get old by the end of the month. It's certainly a combination of bad writing and poor production, but a very easy solution is not have this wrestler appear every few seconds.

I like the Iconics. think they're funny, cure, ok wrestlers. But, YES they are so overexposed like many other things I also like. It's a directionless overexposure, too. I absolutely hear where you're coming from, even if I disagree with some of the critiques.

Re: The Iconics are not funny and getting old

What is the phrase that Becky Lynch fans, Seth fans and everyone getting "pushed" use? Something "Well, when you are getting popular people start turning on you" or something like that? Honestly, it was a matter of time, more so when their characters are meant to be annoying and they are not very good in the ring. I still enjoy them, but I do agree that they have become overexposed, but these days, anyone who is getting a bit popular gets overexposed, WWE likes to milk them dry. Look at Becky, look at Roman, look at Shane. I am not saying that the Iiconics are nowhere near as over as they are, but they have become a bit more popular since they won the titles and WWE is gonna take advantage of that, even if in the long run hurts them.

Re: The Iconics are not funny and getting old

well i guess he can have his opinion. I think they're great! Still funny...and by far one of those most comfortable women on the mic in the division. They're keepers.

the brand split sucks
