Team '''Lay Cool''' (also simply called Lay-Cool) were a tag team in ProfessionalWrestling that consisted of WWE Divas Wrestling/MichelleMcCool and Wrestling/{{Layla}}. The two teamed together regularly in standard diva tag matches in 2009 before officially forming an alliance at the end of the year. They were given new characters as exaggerated versions of AlphaBitch and ValleyGirl tropes, feuding with the other divas. As 2010 went on they slowly became more prominent in the WWE, even becoming the first female pros on NXT as well as co-holding the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwf-wm.html WWE Women's Title]]. The majority of their feuds with the other divas were based around their ValleyGirl gimmicks ie. with Wrestling/MickieJames they made fun of her weight, with Wrestling/BethPhoenix they kept calling her a man etc.

* RecycledSoundtrack: This seems to be Layla's thing, though mostly through sheer coincidence. When she hooked up with Michelle, she took on the latter's theme song as her own - and kept it when Michelle retired.

Although, the song Layla used while she was with Michelle and later kept was originally Torrie Wilson's theme song for a short time while she was a heel. So LayCool's theme song, "Not Enough For Me", was recycled from Torrie.

* PortmanteauCoupleName: Lay-Cool obviously. In a shoot interview, Michelle claims they went through dozens of names like that before finally picking one that worked.
** Years later Layla did it again with Summer Rae. They became the [=SLayers=].

* ButNotTooBlack: Layla is mixed race yet over the years has made herself look more "Anglo" by wearing her hair straight and even lightening it to blonde for a time. Whether this is to distinguish herself from the darker skinned Divas like AliciaFox, Naomi and Cameron, or to fit the ValleyGirl persona we're not quite sure.

Added DiffLines:

* EpicFail: Michelle once appeared on Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? She did badly, which is embarassing, considering that she actually used to be a school teacher.

** Before that, Michelle's rundown of Mickie James got Mickie a temporary ally when it turned out a lot of what she said applied to Beth Phoenix. Beth quickly decided she still hated Mickie more but turned on Laycool again when they [[BerserkButton ripped the women's championship]] in half so they could keep playing "Co-champions".

* {{Squee}}: Their understandable reaction to learning Kaval was the rookie they were paired up with on NXT, [[CutenessProximity though it turned out they weren't happy for the reasons everyone expected them to be.]]
