Since capturing the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships from Bayley and Sasha Banks at WrestleMania 35, The IIconics have done very little of note.
The Australian duo have only defended the championships twice since winning them in early April, and have been using very sparingly on WWE TV.
However, it has since emerged that WWE actually had plans for the team to feud with two former Divas Champions in a big feud following WrestleMania 35.
Speaking to WrestlingNews, Nikki Bella has revealed that she and her sister Brie were scheduled to challenge The IIconics for the championships after WrestleMania 35. Nikki stated that she suffered various injuries forcing the plans to be scrapped.
“Brie and I, we were gonna come back and fight for the tag titles after WrestleMania and we were gonna go against The IIconics for a few months. Deep down inside, I kept having this weird feeling that I needed to get an x-ray on my neck because for a while I wasn’t feeling okay. Brie knows that in December after Evolution, I just kept telling her that I feel off and my head doesn’t feel right…”
It should be noted that rumours have since emerged suggesting that The IIconics only won the championships on the “grandest stage of them all” so they could feud with the popular sisters.
There is no word on when exactly Nikki Bella revealed to WWE that she would be unable to make a return to the ring for the feud.
