Fans have posted their hate for this on social media, especially Twitter. Judging from the comment section of the Instagram post, fans are not happy at all.

Although not a major headlining match, WWE could have done a lot with Mickie James, given her experience. However, James has not been giving the final push yet.

It is clear that the feud will go past Clash of Champions unless Peyton Royce is sent to the doorstep of “The Empress of Tomorrow” next.
