As per the previous reports, one half of The IIconics – Peyton Royce was up for a big push on Monday Night RAW. Vince McMahon did mention her name separately during a meeting held with the creative team. On that meet, he did spend time on the Australian superstar’s potential as a solo star in the future.
As a result of the same, Peyton Royce did get solo on Raw within a few weeks. The IIconics ended up losing a Number-one Contender’s Match for the Women’s Tag Team Championships against The Riott Squad – Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott. The stipulation forced the losing team to get disbanded as this marked the final match for The IIconics.

It also could have marked the debut for Peyton Royce in the Raw Women’s Title picture which isn’t the case. Asuka is expected to defend her WWE RAW Women’s Championship against Zelina Vega at the upcoming WWE Clash of Champions PPV on September 27. As reported earlier, the original plan for her was to face Shayna Baszler, according to the latest reports published by Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Now, those plans got changed once Baszler and Nia Jax won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles from Bayley and Sasha Banks at Payback 2020 PPV. Bianca Belair and Peyton Royce were both in line for respective pushes, but Vince McMahon apparently forgot about Belair. Natalya was also considered for the contender’s spot after her pairing with Lana but that also looks to have been dropped.
Furthermore, it was noted that despite breaking up The IIconics, WWE doesn’t really have any plans for the singles push for Peyton Royce. Both of the former tag team champions were left off RAW, this past week as McMahon had forgotten about them. Belair did wrestle on this past edition of WWE Main Event, though.
It’s been recently noted how Monday Night Raw has lately been a mess in the absence of a proper creative leader, ever since Paul Heyman’s gone. Ruining creative plans for talents like Peyton Royce is another example of why WWE needs to look into the matter, seriously. At a time, when Peyton doesn’t have anything to get excited about, she’s putting up gorgeous pictures on Instagram to stay connected with her fanbase. You can have a look at those photos as shared in this article.
