Former WWE Star Doesn't Rule Out Pro Wrestling Return

Jessie McKay hasn't closed the door on professional wrestling just yet

Jessie McKay, best known as Billie Kay in WWE as a former member of The IIconics alongside Peyton Royce, hasn’t wrestled in a match since early 2022 when the pair lost the IMPACT Knockouts Tag Team Titles to Madison Rayne and Tenille Dashwood. 

Shortly after, they took a step back from the ring to focus on other ventures. McKay recently spoke whilst doing a virtual signing for Golden Ring Collectibles and commented on a potential in-ring return;

“Never say never. There’s always opportunities but, um, liking where I’m at in my life right now… I just like what I’m doing right now so, I really am diving into my acting career and that’s my priority right now. I have classes every Wednesday. I think training and learning about that business is extremely important if you wanna succeed so that’s just my priority now and auditioning as much as I can."

McKay went on to talk about her time in wrestling and how it was more about her characters rather than anything in the ring - something which compared to the likes of The Rock, who fans remember more for his personality. 

I mean, I feel like people forget, the reason why I was drawn into wrestling was for the characters. I was drawn to The Rock who was the over the top character in the Attitude Era and I think people forget that we are characters. Nobody is going to remember how good my body slam was or how I could take a suplex and they’re gonna remember the promos and the interactions that I had with people so…

It looks as though a return to professional wrestling isn’t in the works right now for McKay, or her tag team partner for that matter who recently gave birth, but the door hasn’t been closed just yet on the former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion.
