Peyton Royce & Billie Kay take WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles

Name a more iconic moment than Peyton Royce & Billie Kay winning the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania 35. We’ll wait.

Looking to make their mark on The Grandest Stage of Them All, The IIconics shocked the world by beating reigning champions The Boss n Hug Connection, Nia Jax & Tamina, and Natalya & Beth Phoenix in a frenetic Fatal 4-Way Match to claim the tandem titles.

If there was a sentimental favourite going into the bout, it was the returning Phoenix, who joined Natalya in donning the colours of the 2019 WWE Hall of Fame inductees The Hart Foundation. The two were even joined on the ramp by Bret “Hit Man” Hart during their entrance.

If there was an odds-on favourite, it was the defending champions The Boss n Hug Connection, who took control of the contest with the well-oiled offense they’d honed in recent months as champions.

As for Tamina & Nia Jax, they were determined to become the favourites through sheer force. The Samoan Slaughterhouse laid out all three opposing pairs at one point and ascended the ropes ready to deliver a crushing blow, but The Glamazon knocked Nia off her perch.

After a melee on the outside, The Boss n Hug Connection slugged it out with Natalya and Beth in a scrap that culminated with The Glamazon executing a jaw-dropping Glam Slam from the top rope at Bayley expense. With victory within her grasp, Beth saw her pinfall broken up when Royce pulled her away from Bayley and hurled her out of the ring, allowing Billie Kay to capitalise, score the three-count, and capture the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship for The IIconics.

How’s that for iconic?
