Recently, Peyton Royce of The IIconics did a lengthy Q&A session on her official Twitter handle. During the session, she answered a long string of other questions. Royce expressed interest in having a feud with Chelsea Green, who made her main roster debut recently on the Christmas special taping of RAW. She revealed that her favorite opponents are Ruby Riott, Ember Moon, Asuka, and Alexa Bliss. Royce added that her dream tag team opponents are The Bella Twins, and Michelle McCool & Layla.
A fan questioned about the origins of her name. Royce responded by revealing the names she almost got before going with her current in-ring name. She stated that she got a list consisting of a bunch of names that she could choose from. The only name that Royce found worth using was “Ruby Ryan”. She considered going with Ruby Royce, but Royce wanted ‘Peyton’ as a part of her name. So, she made a request to the higher-ups, and the company granted her with same.
Well I got a list of names & the only one I liked was ‘Ruby Ryan’. I didn’t like Ryan (although I do now) so I tried to come up with another last name which is were I liked Ruby Royce. But I really wanted ‘Peyton’ so I asked again for that & got them both! 😁☺️
