WWE released the IIconics on April 15th and they had visa issues to deal with before going anywhere else. Thankfully, that was resolved as they two inked a deal with Impact Wrestling.
The former IIconics in WWE haven’t even officially appeared on Impact Wrestling TV and already they feel the change in environment from their time in WWE. They said as much in recent statements they made speaking with Cultaholic. Cassie Lee said:
“Something that Jess and I are very big on, we call it ‘the big C’ communication. We’re so excited because we can already feel how everyone is so easily able to communicate. You can ask a question and you’ll get an answer, and if there is no answer then ‘we’re gonna get you an answer’…That is huge for us; it kinda sounds like it’s not a big deal, but for us it’s huge…”
Jessie McKay continued to say: “Absolutely. It’s a well oiled machine, as they say, very excited for some communication *laughs*…”
Gail Kim, who is a legend at Impact, as well having wrestled for WWE throughout her decorated career said that the Knockouts Division isn’t perfect, but they are working hard to achieve the best product possible.
“We aren’t perfect, but I will say that we definitely try and we do try to provide all the tools and resources we can to help our talents succeed most of all.”
Cassie Lee then added, “We haven’t even debuted yet and we can already feel that…” Also, in perfect IIconics/IInspiration fashion, McKay finished her thoughts, saying, “We already have that support straight off the bat.”
The IInspiration are set to face Decay’s Havoc and Rosemary (the current and defending Knockouts Champions) at Impact’s premiere show of the year, Bound For Glory this Saturday October 23rd, live from Vegas. The event will mark Impact’s first live show since the pandemic began and will feature their fan base as the venue (Sam’s Town Las Vegas hotel and casino) is capable of holding 1500 people.
