Source: The IIconics Reportedly Pulled From WWE TV - Wrestling Inc.The IIconics were reportedly pulled from WWE TV several weeks back.
There's no word yet on why the decision was made, but Dave Meltzer noted on Twitter that WWE officials may have pulled The IIconics from TV to re-package them. The idea was that they would be back, but there's no known timetable for their returns, and no word on what the re-package could consist of.
Peyton Royce and Billie Kay haven't wrestled since their loss to Charlotte Flair and RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch on the November 18 RAW episode. They did appear the next week for a pre-taped WWE Shop Black Friday segment with R-Truth. It looks like Kay and Royce have also been pulled from WWE live event action as well. They did work the homecoming live events in Australia last October, but that was it.
Stay tuned for updates on the returns of The IIconics, who have remained active on social media while out of action.
As seen below, a fan tweeted that they miss seeing the former WWE Women's Tag Team Champions on TV this week.
Peyton responded, "We miss you too [face with stuck out tongue emoji]"
Peyton also commented on last night's SmackDown Fatal 4 Way main event, which saw Carmella defeat Dana Brooke, Alexa Bliss and Naomi to earn a future title shot from SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley.
She wrote, "This was great! Congrats ladies [clapping hands emoji] @CarmellaWWE @AlexaBliss_WWE @NaomiWWE @DanaBrookeWWE"
Source: Update on The IIconics, who have disappeared from WWE TV | Wrestling NewsThere has been a lot of speculation on social media about the status of The IIConics with some suggesting that an injury to one or both of them might be the reason why they’ve been off WWE TV.
Billie Kay and Peyton Royce haven’t wrestled since November and they’ve been off all live events since that time and they were not part of the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
Whatever the situation is with them, it looks like they will be back at some point. Dave Meltzer noted on Twitter that a decision was made to take them off TV. There are no details but it looks like repackaging them could be an option.
2019 did not work out as originally planned for The IIConics. They won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships from Sasha Banks and Bayley at WrestleMania but their reign was treated as an afterthought.
The reason for this is because the original plan was for The IIConics to feud with the returning Bella Twins into the summer. However, Nikki got a bad medical diagnosis on her neck and that nixed plans for the feud. Nikki and Brie were originally supposed to be involved in a segment with Royce and Kay on the SmackDown after WrestleMania.
