A former WWE star is getting ready to get back in the ring for the first time in 18 months.
Peyton Royce and Billie Kay are best known for their time in WWE where they competed as The IIconics. Starting out in NXT, the Australian pair made their way to the main roster and had the biggest win of their careers when they dethroned Sasha Banks and Bayley for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania 35.
They lost that championship in August 2019 and in August of the following year, the duo lost a tag team bout against Liv Morgan & Ruby Riott with the stipulation that the losers of the match must disband their team. As a result, both Royce and Kay would have forgettable solo runs before both were released by the company in April 2021.
Peyton Royce found a new name outside WWE
Six months later the popular pair now known as Cassie Lee (Royce) and Jessie McKay (Kay) debuted in IMPACT Wrestling as The IInspiration, winning the Knockouts Tag Team Championship. The duo enjoyed a six-month spell in that promotion before finishing up in April 2022.
Since then Cassie Lee and her husband, AEW star Shawn Spears, have welcomed their first child into the world but now it looks like Lee is ready to return to the ring.
Cassie Lee will be competing on World Series Wrestling shows in her native Australia beginning in Melbourne on October 6th. Shawn Spears, Matt Cardona, Brian Cage, Frankie Kazarian, Eric Young, Erick Rowan, and CJ Perry are also all advertised for the run of shows.
When Lee does compete in the ring again it will be the first time in 18 months since her spell in IMPACT Wrestling came to an end.
