AEW star Shawn Spears recently opened up on former WWE tag-team, IIconics consisting of his real life wife, Peyton Royce and Billy Kay.
The tag-team was released on April 15 due to budget cuts amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
What is next for IIconics after WWE?
Spears spoke with Wrestle Talk and was asked a tough question about whether his AEW would be interested in signing the former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. He then admitted that the question was above his paygrade.
However, he went on to speak highly of the tag-team and believes they have the abilities to join the promotion. Big E Major WWE Title Rumor Leaks
“Those kind of questions are a little above my pay grade. Being biased and obviously being selfish, of course I think both of those women individually are incredible talents, but collectively they are over the moon in terms of talent. I don’t need to sell Cassie Lee or Billie Kay, I don’t need to sell any of those guys to you. You know what they are capable of, you know how highly entertaining they are, and when it comes to in-ring ability, they just complement each other so well.
Royce and Kay are gearing up for the upcoming chapter in life following the release and Spears said it is important to bounce back .
“In terms of where they’ll show up (mimics praying) Tony why not? But again, those things are above my pay grade. When things like that happen, and they happen to everybody, I tell everybody this not just those two, but I’ve been released before. Everybody loses their job at some point, you’re either there for 30 years and they give you a gold watch and you retire or things happen. The main thing is how you bounce back. Really good individuals, really strong-willed individuals and people with even a chip on their shoulder, they have a tendency to bounce back and land on their feet, and those two women are going to land on their feet without question. Wherever they go, they’re going to be on TV together somewhere. So selfishly I’d like us to get ahold of them first, but wherever they go they’re going to make a massive impactful debut. I expect nothing less from those two.”
We will have to wait and see where Peyton Royce and Billy Kay’s next destination is.
