The IInspiration draws inspiration for their ring gear from IIconic names in pop culture.
Cassie Lee and Jessie McKay have been very open about this iteration of their characters, The IInspiration, being homages to iconic pop culture icons from the turn of the millennium, such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.
Speaking with Sean Ross Sapp at WrestleCade Revenge, Cass and Jess further explained their inspiration behind some of their more iconic looks since leaving WWE.
“Britney Spears, Eddie Guerrero,” Cassie began, “I mean, if you’ve been following what we’ve been doing it’s been this pop star vibe. Britney Spears was our inspiration, but we love that what everyone took from that was Harlem Heat—it’s tag team inspiration. I love that.”
Jessie added, “Then there’s some Eddie inspiration.”
Cassie continued, “Especially, that was on the anniversary—that’s not a good thing—of his passing. Just all tied in, you know?”
Once again talking about their pop culture Inspirations, they reiterated that it's all about the pop princesses from the 2000s, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.
Jessie says, “Britney is a hard one to bloody top. Everything she does, I’m just like, ‘Damn.’ I literally send Cassie numerous photos a week saying, ‘I want to do this, I want to do this.’ But you got a shout out to Xtina.”
