Royce made her pro-wrestling debut on the indie scene in Australia. She interestingly attended the same high school as future tag team partner Billie Kay. Although, the two admitted they were not fans of each other in those days. Peyton Royce’s success on the indie scene led her to receive a tryout and got signed by WWE.

Royce hit her stride after forming a tag team and getting promoted to the main roster of WWE. while she and Billie Kay had success as a tag team, winning tag team gold. However, they both ended up released after the IIconics were split up. Shortly after, Royce and Kay had a brief run in Impact (known in Impact as Cassie Lee and Jessica McKay). They became tag team champions as the IInspiration before asking for their release. Royce is currently expecting her first child with her husband, AEW star Shawn Spears.
