World Wrestling Entertainment (2015-present)

NXT (2015-2018)

McKay received a tryout with WWE during their tour of Australia in August 2014. On 13 April 2015, WWE announced McKay as part of a new class of NXT trainees. McKay made her televised in-ring debut on the 10 June episode of NXT, where she competed in a losing effort against Becky Lynch under the ring name Jessie. On 7 August, she was given the new ring name Billie Kay. After competing in most of her matches at NXT as a face, Kay competed on her first match as a heel on the 21 October episode of NXT, losing to Asuka. Through the end of 2015, Kay started being managed by fellow wrestler, Sylvester Lefort, during multiple NXT live events, however it did not last for long after Lefort was released from his contract in February 2016.

On the 13 January 2016 episode of NXT, Kay competed in a number one contender's battle royal for Bayley's NXT Women's Championship, which was won by Carmella. Kay made her first appearance on the main roster on the 30 June episode of SmackDown, where she worked as a jobber losing to Dana Brooke. Kay finally made her return to NXT television on 27 July, where she achieved her first live victory in the company by defeating Santana Garrett. After asking NXT's general manager William Regal for a match at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II on the 17 August episode of NXT, she was granted one against the debutant Ember Moon. At the event on 20 August, Kay was defeated by Moon. Following a brief hiatus, Kay returned on the 21 September episode of NXT, where she defeated Aliyah.

In October, Kay started an alliance with Peyton Royce, later dubbed as The Iconic Duo, and later entered a feud with Liv Morgan with the duo attacking and defeating Morgan in singles matches. This ultimately led to a six–women tag team match at NXT TakeOver: Toronto, which was taped and aired for the 23 November episode of NXT, in which Aliyah, Ember Moon and Morgan defeated Kay, Royce and their partner Daria Berenato. In the end of December, Kay and Royce were placed in a brief feud with the NXT Women's Champion Asuka after the latter stated there is no competition for her. This resulted in a fatal–four-way match, which also involved Nikki Cross, at the NXT TakeOver: San Antonio event on 28 January 2017, in which both Kay and Royce failed to capture the Women's Championship.

SmackDown (2018–present)

Kay and Royce now dubbed The IIconics debuted on the April 10 episode of SmackDown and attacked SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair after she cut a promo about her match at WrestleMania 34.
