Signing with the WWE before Raine, Legend made her backstage debut in September 2021. It wouldn’t be till December of the same year that Legend would make her in-ring debut.

However, as the two are still green, it will take some time to get over with the fans and establish names for themselves. Meanwhile, they are getting into feuds and living up to their family name.
