WWE released loads of employees, including WWE Superstars, over the past several months. This recent trend jumpstarted on April 15th, the same day that they axed several people last year. The IIconics and more were a part of those cuts.
Peyton Royce and Billie Kay were released back in April. Many fans were shocked at this outcome as they still had a lot of potential. After many months of waiting, Cassie Lee and Jessica McKay finally signed with Impact Wrestling.
Cassie Lee and Jessica McKay finally made their debut with Impact Wrestling during the Bound For Glory pay-per-view. They ended up winning the Impact Knockouts Tag Team Titles.
While speaking to Darren Paltrowitz, Cassie Lee and Jessica McKay revealed that they were influenced by the legendary Impact Wrestling group The Beautiful People. It comprised Angelina Love, Velvet Sky and later on Madison Rayne and Lacey Von Erich as well.
”It was actually The Beautiful People. I’m going back in the day, I used to watch it on YouTube because the internet wasn’t that big back then. As a teenager, that was pretty cool to see, because they were these sexy, beautiful women with these incredible bodies, but they’re also so different as well. They each had their own individuality, and they could kick your ass in the ring.
“So that was probably the earliest memory where I was like, ‘Oh, wow, this is, — I want to do that. I want to be like that because that’s a strong woman right there. So absolutely. I have to say their entrance is the first memory that I really kind of go back to,
It’s actually the exact same and exactly what Jess just said. So I’m just gonna repeat her. But I like that, being able to be a feminine and beautiful woman and still be really strong and independent. That is, and pun intended, that is super inspiring to me.”
The IInspiration are set to compete in their first match on Impact Wrestling television as they will take on the Undead Brides. We will have to wait and see how they will be booked as the champions in the coming months.
