The Dazzling WWE Duo - Who Are Kicking Butt In Real Life!
Oxygen Magazine Australia|Issue 99

Billie Kay and Peyton Royce project effortless confidence as they slam their listless opponents on the ring canvas, but behind their larger than-life characters are two seriously driven athletes who have travelled halfway across the world to fight for their dreams. To do so, a radical physical and mental transformation has occurred, changing two school friends from Sydney into fully fledged WWE Superstars

As children, both girls were glued to their respective television sets whenever pro wrestling would come on screen. In a moment that now seems like destiny, Billie and Peyton met at Sydney’s Westfields Sports High School where Billie was excelling at basketball and Peyton was working towards a promising career in dance. They soon discovered that their shared interest would lead to an unbreakable bond.

“At first everyone thought that wanting to become a pro wrestler was just a phase," recalls Peyton.

Despite their talents in different fields, the allure of the WWE spotlight was too much to ignore, and both girls eventually decided that a career in wrestling would be their ultimate ambition.

“I remember the first time I saw The Rock wrestle and I was mesmerised,” shares Billie.

Setting the goal was the easy part - then came the hard work. Both girls enrolled in wrestling school in their teens, and as soon as they felt confident, took on amateur matches for small regional shows. They endured little or no pay and helped put out chairs and set up rings before events. It was all part of the learning process.

"The footwork came easier for me. I think being a dancer taught me to be aware of my body and the space around me. But learning to wrestle was so hard. I remember my body being so sore at first!" says Billie.

“I couldn’t walk for three days after my first training session!” adds Peyton.
