WWE released both Billie Kay and Peyton Royce on April 15th and they already hit the ground running on their post-WWE careers. Both have registered new names and seem to be gearing up for that next chapter. AEW is obviously an option, but nothing is set in stone.
Shawn Spears, former WWE Superstar Tye Dillinger, is married to Peyton Royce, now known as Cassie Lee. She along with Jessica Kay are ready to see what opportunities are out there.
While talking to Wrestle Talk, Spears was asked a tough question about whether his current employer would be interested in signing the former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. That question is admittedly above his paygrade.
“Those kind of questions are a little above my pay grade. Being biased and obviously being selfish, of course I think both of those women individually are incredible talents, but collectively they are over the moon in terms of talent. I don’t need to sell Cassie Lee or Billie Kay, I don’t need to sell any of those guys to you. You know what they are capable of, you know how highly entertaining they are, and when it comes to in-ring ability, they just complement each other so well.
“In terms of where they’ll show up (mimics praying) Tony why not? But again, those things are above my pay grade. When things like that happen, and they happen to everybody, I tell everybody this not just those two, but I’ve been released before. Everybody loses their job at some point, you’re either there for 30 years and they give you a gold watch and you retire or things happen. The main thing is how you bounce back. Really good individuals, really strong-willed individuals and people with even a chip on their shoulder, they have a tendency to bounce back and land on their feet, and those two women are going to land on their feet without question. Wherever they go, they’re going to be on TV together somewhere. So selfishly I’d like us to get ahold of them first, but wherever they go they’re going to make a massive impactful debut. I expect nothing less from those two.”
AEW could have interest in the IIconics, but they couldn’t use that name. WWE has it locked down, but there are still plenty of things that Cassie Lee and Jessica Kay could do no matter what their name is.
