Speaking to Billie Kay on their Off Her Chops podcast, Peyton Royce has opened up about a disastrous meeting with WWE owner Vince McMahon prior to her release from the company in April.
After the IIconics were split in the WWE Draft last year and Billie Kay was moved over to SmackDown, Peyton Royce has recalled a horror meeting with McMahon that resulting in her telling him she was boring:
“This is when you were drafted to Smackdown and I decided to put on my big girl panties and talk to Vince. I had in my head what I wanted to say but he brushed it off very quickly and I went ‘crap’. I had an idea that I wanted to present, and he wanted to discuss other ideas – but I didn’t have other ideas. This is what I wanted to talk about and put my time and effort into. Vince says ‘What do you do for fun?’ Me being me, the introvert and the homebody that I am, I had to let him know that I like to sit on the couch with my dogs and watch TV.
“He just stared at me and in my head I’m just like, ‘make something up’ and I couldn’t make anything up – nothing was coming out. I’m not a liar. I feel like he could have seen right through that. I basically said to him ‘I’m sorry, I’m boring and I just like to be home on my off days’. I didn’t contribute much during that unfortunately and that’s probably why I lost the job.”
This comes after the tag team name that The IIconics will be using after leaving WWE was potentially revealed, which you can find out more about by clicking here.
