After The IIconics spent weeks prodding The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection to come and challenge them on SmackDown LIVE, Sasha Banks & Bayley arrived on the blue brand to face off against Billie Kay & Peyton Royce.
The IIconics may have been regretting their persistence (and their harsh pre-match words) in the early goings when Sasha & Bayley came out of the gates hot, keeping The IIconics guessing what they would hit them with next. However, the tides turned when the arrival (and exit) of “The Sassy Southern Belle” Lacey Evans distracted The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection enough to let The IIconics take control. In the clutch, Billie took out Bayley on the outside with a big boot and then, unbeknownst to the official, helped Peyton hold Banks down for the three-count.
With The IIconics’ victory over the first-ever WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, the WWE Universe is left to wonder what impact that would have on the future on the division.
