After a seven months absence, RAW has become IICONIC! once again. The former Women’s Tag Team Champions – The IIconics – returned on tonight’s show as the guests for A Moment of Bliss. The current tag champs of Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross who are originally on SmackDown are able to defend their titles across all brands.
A Moment of Bliss starts with Bliss & Cross talking about Becky Lynch‘s huge announcement of her pregnancy earlier in the night. After The IIconics interrupt the discussion, Bliss says that the baby news overshadowed their return. Peyton Royce says that a “ginger junior” will not upstage their long-awaited return.
Billie Kay then states that she and Royce want a championship match tonight. Bliss explains that they can’t just come in and demand a title shot. The IIconics understand that logic, but they are not going to leave without having a match even without the titles on the line. They just want to win.
These two teams have a lot of history among them as it was Bliss & Cross who defeated The IIconics to take their titles in August on RAW. Since then, Bliss & Cross are in their second reign after defeating The Kabuki Warriors at WrestleMania.
As the match comes to an end, Bliss thought she had the match won as she hit a double knee to Kay getting a two count as Royce came in to break up the pin. Cross then enters the ring with a big elbow to Royce. It doesn’t keep Royce down for long as she sends Cross flying through the ropes to the outside. Kay delivers a cheap shot to the throat of Bliss behind the officials back and then tags in her partner.
The two then paired up to deliver a final blow to Bliss. Royce then picked up the pin and the win for the returning duo. The IIconics have defeated the tag team champions in a non-title match.
The two teams will battle again next week with the titles on the line:
