The IIconics Are Still Soaking In Their WWE Women's Tag Team Title Victory

The IIconics discuss being Women's Tag Team Champions.

At WrestleMania 35, The IIconics (Peyton Royce & Billie Kay) won a fatal four-way women's tag team match to become the Women's Tag Team Champions. Though time has passed, the duo still can't get over their WrestleMania moment.

“I feel like a month later we’re still soaking it all in,” Royce told “We still have conversations when we’re travelling on the road now, and we start talking about it and get goosebumps, and we start crying again, it’s still so surreal for us.”

Kay added, “Right after the match we had to do a bunch of media really quickly, but then we got back and looked at our phones and they were just flooded with messages. Not just from friends and family, but from people we hadn’t talked to in a while, it was very overwhelming all the love and support we got right afterwards. All of our families were watching live which made it even more special. So after crying through all the media, we go back to the locker room and cry a bit more to our families, and we were able to speak to them for a bit which was great.”

When Sasha Banks & Bayley won the Women's Tag Team Titles, they established that the belts would be defended across all brands, including NXT. The IIconics look to carry that tradition.

“As champions want to be across all brands. So we’ve picked up a bit of a workload but this is everything that we’ve ever wanted, so we’re loving all the extra appearances that we’re making,” Royce said.

Despite holding the titles, The IIconics haven't had much success in the ring. Aside from a victory over The Brooklyn Belles, Royce & Kay don't have a televised victory of any form (singles, tag team, multi-tag) since WrestleMania 35.
