The WWE Universe was looking forward to the post-WrestleMania 34 edition of SmackDown Live as NXT superstars were expected to make their debuts. Two of those superstars are Peyton Royce and Billie Kay, famously known as “The Iconic Duo” of NXT. However, Royce and Kay were not called that in their debut, instead they are now known as “The IIconics.”
As recapped by WWE.com, Peyton Royce and Billie Kay interrupted Charlotte Flair’s celebration of ending Asuka’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania 34 and successfully defending the SmackDown Live Women’s Championship. The newly-dubbed “The IIconics” proceeded to mock Charlotte and they ended up attacking the champion.
Royce and Kay used their numbers game to gain advantage as they brutally assaulted “The Queen.” Kay ended up hitting Charlotte with her Shades of Kay finisher. The Australian duo continued their assault on the outside. Royce and Kay threw Charlotte to the barricade, the ring post, and the ring steps before hitting a double powerbomb on the floor.
It left Charlotte vulnerable as Royce and Kay made their way to the back. The situation led to Carmella rushing to the ring and finally cashing in her Money in the Bank briefcase. After a long standoff with referee Mike Chioda, Carmella hit a Superkick to Charlotte to become the new SmackDown Live Women’s champion.
