Oh sweet summer child, don't look on various websites/twitter pages/reddit. They love to hijack the NXT twitter hashtag and post their iconic duo RP stuff, among other things. Their fanbase is up there with Alexa Bliss's fanbase in terms of that kind of stuff. I have no clue why they have such a large following either, since both of them are (or was possibly, in the case of Peyton) jobbers.

Do the Iconic Duo sell a lot of merch in comparison to Ember Moon or whoever else? If so then I'd be more willing to believe they would try to appease social media hardcores

I don't even think they have merchandise, but Peyton probably will after Takeover: Houston. I think the only two active women in NXT who have merch right now are Ember and Kairi (and Kairi's shirt isn't even her own. So technically only Ember has merch right now).

To be honest, WWE could probably make a killing off of selling replica ship wheels and masks that Kairi wears. Or the flower stuff that Peyton usually has with her.

I was a big fan of Jessie McKay in Shimmer and never really understood why they decided to do such a drastic change with her in NXT. I'll admit the whole "everyone's favourite girlfriend" gimmick was patriarchal but it's not like "vapid brand obsessed Iconic" is any better. I was wondering today if the whole reason they have her wearing way too much makeup is so to keep her from getting cheered.

Also I really don't want another Laycool pairing which would probably happen if Peyton got the belt.

That actually would explain her drop in match quality; from my limited knowledge base (read: 1 person who was willing to talk about it) implants do require an adjustment period when it comes to balance and movement.

What was the name of the female wrestler in WWE who had the giant mole on her face/was JBL's secretary then got a gimmick as a terrible singer that she parlayed into an iTunes single? I recall that when she got her breast implants she went from a pretty good wrestler to far more limited (though they did do a storyline in her home fed about how her breast implants had poisoned her and made her evil!)

Dunne/Gargano was good as hell and Ruby/Sonya was pretty decent too (if Sonya can be carried like that then she'll probably do just fine on the main roster)

Thought it was hilarious when they were trying to retcon Ruby's heel debut on Smackdown, while Ruby is in the ring babyfacing her rear end off.

Otherwise, typical post-Takeover show, which lives or dies on the quality of the dark matches. Thankfully those were good, so it was an enjoyable hour, if not must-see.

Apparently, everyone who got called up got "the call", brother on Sunday morning.

For example, on Friday night Aliyah was laughing in the background at Liv playing piano at home on Snapchat.

Nope, confirmed the opposite. It was the plan all along. Drew was only injured on the actual planned finish.

What Aphrodite said. Across all major website sites.

When I asked someone close to the situation the night of Takeover they said on Almas: "he has been scheduled for over a week to win".

It has been widely speculated/near confirmed Drew was being called up after dropping the title. So this injury sucks big time for him.

Yeah that was my guess - Drew just ticks far too many Vince boxes not to be an early call-up even in spite of how he was treated on the main roster last time. It really sucks that he would get derailed right on the cusp of making his big return.
