Former WWE broadcaster Renee Paquette has explained why she understands why The IIconics refused a WWE return as part of the Royal Rumble.
SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair previously announced that several former WWE Superstars and WWE Hall Of Famers are set to return to be a part of the women’s Royal Rumble match. Stars such as Lita, The Bella Twins, and even current IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Champion Mickie James will be part of the showpiece match as they attempt to build their own Road To WrestleMania.
However, it appears that not all WWE’s offers for a one-night return have been accepted with former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions The IIconics said to have refused a comeback.
The former Peyton Royce and Billie Kay are now better known respectively as Cassie Lee and Jessie McKay are now The IInspiration and are currently champions themselves, winning the IMPACT Knockouts Tag Team Title in their debut for the promotion.
Renee Paquette has discussed the upcoming Royal Rumble on The Sessions, where she says she understands why The IInspiration have made their decision less than a year after they were released by WWE:
“It is a kick straight in the lady d*ck. Like straight-up your lady d*ck. I don’t blame them for feeling that way if that’s how they feel. It’s like ‘oh, oh you guys let too many people go and now you need more bodies to fill a 30 woman Royal Rumble? Interesting how that happens.’”
“I couldn’t help but be slighted by that. As much as you can leave on good terms, it is what it is and everyone’s happy, everyone’s working and life has gone and it’s fine. But you can’t help but be a little bit bitter, you know?”
