The IInspiration indefinitely stepping away from in-ring action

Cassie Lee and Jessie McKay are exploring other opportunities.

The IInspiration's Cassie Lee and Jessie McKay are stepping away from the ring.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, Lee and McKay announced that they are "indefinitely stepping away from in-ring action." Lee and McKay had been part of the Impact Wrestling roster since signing with the promotion last October.

"We first want to thank Scott D'Amore and the entire IMPACT family," Lee and McKay said. "We have had such an amazing experience, working with the incredible IMPACT staff and roster. We will cherish these IMPACT memories forever. We are excited to start a new chapter in our lives and explore other opportunities that may come our way."

"The Inspiration have been a great part of IMPACT's Knockouts roster and wonderful to work with," Impact Wrestling executive vice president D'Amore said. "Cassie and Jessie are incredibly talented performers. Everyone at IMPACT wishes them every success in the future."

The IInspiration were formerly known as The IIconics in WWE, using the names Peyton Royce and Billie Kay respectively. They were released by WWE during the company's April 2021 roster cuts.

The IInspiration made their Impact Wrestling debut at Bound for Glory last October. In their debut match, Lee & McKay won the Knockouts Tag Team titles. They dropped the titles to The Influence (Tenille Dashwood & Madison Rayne) at Sacrifice this March.

The Influence retained their titles against The IInspiration on the pre-show for Impact Wrestling's Bound for Glory pay-per-view last Saturday.
