The IInspiration also won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship once during their time in WWE. But the promotion released them earlier this year, and they have been away from the action ever since.

Now, they are back to prove their worth in Impact Wrestling.

The IInspiration spent most of their career in WWE

We also knew The IInspiration as ‘The Iconic Duo’ back at their time in NXT. The team of Cassie Lee and Jessica McKay made their debut as a team back in 2015 and were part of the WWE house shows for over a year.

The duo made their NXT debut in WWE in October 2016 and even won 2016’s “Breakout of the Year” at the NXT Year-End Awards.

In 2018, they made their entry into the main roster as “The IIconics” and won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania 35.

But the team broke after they lost a feud with The Riott Squad in 2020. After that, they tried to compete individually in WWE. Unfortunately, that didn’t work out, and WWE released both of them earlier this year.
