Report: The IInspiration turned down WWE Royal Rumble offer

The duo are the Impact Wrestling Knockouts Tag Team Champions.

The IInspiration will not be walking through The Forbidden Door. 

According to a Fightful Select report, Impact Wrestling Knockouts Tag Team Champions Cassie Lee and Jessie McKay were offered spots in the 2022 women's Royal Rumble match, but turned the offer down. 

The report cites an Impact Wrestling source that said that the company would have approved the deal, but that Lee and McKay did not want to go back to WWE at this time. 

Lee and McKay would have joined Knockouts Champion Mickie James as Impact talent participating in the Rumble had they accepted the offer. 

The IInspiration  joined Impact in October 2021 at the Bound For Glory pay-per-view, where they won the Knockouts Tag titles. The duo performed as The IIconics in WWE prior to their April 2021 releases. 

Performing as Peyton Royce and Billie Kay, the team captured the WWE Women's Tag titles at WrestleMania 35 in April 2019, holding the titles for 120 days.
