Former WWE Women’s and Divas Champion Layla was on a recent episode of Excuse Me: The Vickie Guerrero Show.
As LayCool, Layla and Michelle McCool were known for their split Divas Title belt thus making them both Divas Champion. Layla admitted that the idea was neither hers or McCool’s, and she revealed the WWE Hall of Famer that pitched the idea to Vince McMahon.
“We never went together, like ‘Flawless.’ It just organically happened one day, and then after that, we just kept talking the same and just saying things together,” Layla recalled. “It’s true. I could look at Michelle and know if she was like, go over this way. Go that way. I could really read her like a book. I don’t know if she could read me, but I would follow her. She was definitely the leader.
“The actual title belts, it was not me and Michelle. One day we did the ‘Forever Friends’ necklaces. Batista, during rehearsals one day, he goes, ‘You know what, I just told Vince you guys should split the titles like you do the Forever Friends necklaces,’ and I was like, Really?’ He’s like, ‘I told Michelle, and she liked it.’ All of the sudden, that was it. It was done because it really was perfect. So Batista came up with that.”
Layla later took questions from fans who asked if she and McCool are still in touch. She also told a funny story about a mishap that happened backstage with an agent.
“Yes, I do have contact with Michelle. I think Michelle and I will always be in contact even just a happy birthday, happy holidays,” Layla revealed. “We will always be in contact with each other. I’ve never heard Michelle laugh so hard. So one day, we’re in the locker room. It was myself. It was Kelly Kelly, Rosa [Mendes] and Michelle. So there was a mirror in front of me here. Michelle was standing by the mirror. I was over here getting changed. Rosa and Barbie were over at the back, and one of the agents comes in.
“So the agents is like, ‘Can I come into your locker,’ and they’re like, ‘Yeah sure.’ So sat down by the door. It was a small locker room, and he was going over the spots with us. I was wearing the Snooki outfit. We were coming out, me and Michelle, making fun of Jersey Shore, so we were getting ready, and I turn around and I forget the agent’s there. I go, ‘I don’t like this top,’ and I take it off in front of the agent in front of the mirror.
“And Michelle goes, ‘Layla!’ I have nothing on. He just rolls out the door. Michelle and everyone were on the floor dying laughing sore. She never laughed so hard. I couldn’t like laugh because I was just mortified like, what have I done? Just totally forgot and she remembers that. That’s definitely a memory we both laugh about to this day.”
