John Cena Sr. says WWE did the right thing by releasing Billie Kay and Peyton Royce. The IIconics were a part of a mass release in April by the WWE.
Shortly after Wrestlemania 37, WWE decided to release stars they weren’t using much or didn’t have plans for. While most were obvious, there were a few names on the list that shocked fans. No one saw Samoa Joe and the IIconics departing the WWE but that’s exactly what happened.
While fans believe that they should have gotten a longer rope, John Cena Sr. thinks only Samoa Joe should have been retained. While speaking with Boston Wrestling MWF’s Dan Mirade, he made it clear that he was fully on board with the decision and that it made sense to him.

“So, now I sit back and say to you: that makes sense. It’s all I can say. That makes sense. If I was the guy in charge [Vince McMahon], I’d be looking at who’s putting a**es in seats, who’s performing, who isn’t, and I’d say, ‘You know what, good luck in your future endeavors.’ That’s the way to do it, brother.”
He went on to add that WWE tried to repackage them, as they do with talent they want to keep fresh. However, the move wasn’t working and moving on was in the best interests of everyone involved.
“I think you can always find a way to repackage a product and put it back on its shelf. I think the case was it just didn’t work, and the fact is, ‘I’m not gonna work with it anymore. Let’s move on. We’ll find somebody else’. Unfortunate but I think the one thing they can do is look back and say, like I do, ‘I had my day in the sun.’”
