“I will only be in a tag team if it’s with Billie Kay”- Former IIconics Peyton Royce, opens up on her partnership with Lacey Evans.
If rumors are to be believed, the IIconics were broken up in order to give Peyton Royce a singles push. Instead however, she was paired with Lacey Evans. The moved earned the ire of the WWE universe who couldn’t get behind why Vince McMahon would break up a team that already exists just to create a makeshift one?
The IIconics were split apart on a random episode of WWE RAW. The only consolation was watching Peyton chart the next step in her career. Then she walked out with Lacey Evans for a tag team match last month. Their alliance was hinted at once again when WWE’s The Bump asked what Peyton Royce and Lacey Evans’ team name should be.

Peyton Royce on her partnership with Lacey Evans
Peyton revealed that she and the Sassy Southern Belle were not a team. The former Women’s tag team champion went a step ahead and made it clear that she would only ever be in a tag team with her former partner Billy Kay.
We are not a team.
I will only be in a tag team if it’s with Billie Kay. That’s it. The end. I’m dead serious.

“We are not a team,” she wrote. “I will only be in a tag team if it’s with Billie Kay. That’s it. The end. I’m dead serious.”
It is unknown what the plans for Royce are in the future. However, Lacey Evans looks like a possible first feud. After the Survivor Series maybe?
While Royce has appeared sparingly since the split. Billie Kay has appeared even fewer times. However, she received a lot of praise for her comedic timing in her last appearance on SmackDown with the Street Profits.
