The former Billie Kay and Peyton Royce, The IIconics, recently revealed on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast that they’re unable to work in the United States following their WWE releases.

Now going by Cassie Lee & Jessica McKay, The IIconics have run into green card issues working in North America, issues that were exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

‘The difficult thing for us is, we still don’t have our green cards, so we’re not allowed to work until we get those or until we find sponsorship anywhere else” Cassie Lee began. “We’re so excited; we have all this freedom and so many ideas, but pump the brakes because we can’t do any of it.”

Will The IIconics return to wrestling?

“The podcast, we’re not making any money off of it. It’s purely to get our name out there and stay relevant” Lee/Peyton of The IIconics continued. “It’s been tough just knowing we have all these things we want to do but can’t do it.”

‘We’re in this holding pattern right now. There’s literally nothing we can do; we’re just waiting. We’ve been in this process for four years, which is basically unheard of. Factors came into it that no one can control, like the pandemic.’

‘People are like, ’˜What are going to do now?’ Well, nothing, because I can’t legally work in the country and people think that you apply for the green card and it comes in the mail” Billie Kay/Jessica McKay added.

“This stuff takes years and we’ve been through the wringer with this, getting stuff denied and switching the process because of the pandemic. It keeps backing up, year after year. We’re almost there, but almost there could still be a year away” the former IIconic concluded.

There have been rumors that the former IIconics could be heading to AEW, with Cassie Lee’s husband and AEW star Shawn Spears being vocal about wanting the duo to join the promotion.
