Peyton Royce: Why she believes Vince McMahon broke up the IIconics

Last updated

When former WWE Superstar Peyton Royce recently appeared on the Chris Van Vliet podcast, she revealed why she feels Vince McMahon broke up The IIconics before their WWE releases.

‘So I have never told anyone this, and I hope Jess isn’t upset with me for saying this, but I wanted to go singles,’ Peyton Royce revealed on the podcast.

‘There were just things I wanted to tick off of my bucket list as a singles competitor.”

“I vocalized that to Jess in January last year. I didn’t do anything about it, I just told her where I was at, I didn’t try and get us broken up or something like that. It was during the PC era and Jess was out for a week, I had this random singles match, I don’t even remember who it was against.”

Vince [McMahon] loved it”, Royce continued. “He said to me, ’˜you’re so good, what are we doing?’ I just said to him, ’˜look. If it is possible in future plans, I’m not saying right now, but in the future, I would like to see what I can do on my own.’”

“I am so comfortable with Jess; we can conquer the world together. But I wanted to see what I can do for myself. So many people were like, ’˜why did they break you up? It was so stupid’” Peyton Royce continued.

“I’m like, I feel like it’s my fault because I wanted to push myself and see what I was capable of.

“But that might have been the worst decision that I made because nothing ever happened,’ Royce would conclude, blaming herself for the duo eventually being cut from the company.
