* 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.

Team '''Lay Cool''' (also simply called Lay-Cool) were a tag team in ProfessionalWrestling that consisted of WWE Divas Michelle [=McCool=] 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.

* 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.

When Aksana was released, Layla tweeted ''[[HeartwarmingMoments "I had some of my fav and best matches with @WWEAksana that never made TV...blessed to have worked with you"]]''

** 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".

Only add examles that have to do with them as a team. Anything from before their formation and after their breakup, gets added in the Divas page
* BreakupBreakout: After April 2011, Layla stays with WWE and even becomes [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-diva.html WWE Divas' Champion]]. Michelle gets released due to stipulation.

* DanceBattler: Surprisingly averted by Layla. She is a trained dancer and former member of the Miami Heat dancing team. She was also part of the dance troupe Extreme Expose (with Wrestling/KellyKelly and Brooke Tessmacher) on ECW. Yet in her matches she makes barely any reference to her dancing. * DarkSkinnedBlonde: Layla from around October 2012-April 2013.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: When Layla first returned from injury she displayed more lucha type moves and fancy pin combinations. Halfway through her Divas' Championship reign, she had changed her moveset to include more stiff kicks and impact moves.

* FriendshipMoment: After Kaitlyn lost the Divas' Championship to AJ at ''Payback'' 2013, Kaitlyn could barely make it up the ramp while in tears. Layla came out and comforted her, helping her to the back. * FunWithAcronyms: Michelle's heel hook was named "MAD-T" - Made A Diva Tap. Layla's crossbody was also LOL - Lots of Layla.

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: After they attacked Alicia Fox, who had just came to their aid. Alicia was Michelle's former heel partner and Laycool's last theoretical ally. From that point on rest of the locker room took an active stance against them.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Weird case with Layla. She is in fact British, but usually seems to be trying to sound American, with varying levels of success. It seems like she's either deliberately sounding American to avoid the ForeignWrestlingHeel trope, or she has simply lived in America so long, her accent has simply faded.

* 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. Then she switched to a song called "Insatiable" - previously used by Tiffany. Then after pairing up with Fandango, she took on his music. She did have a theme of her own called "Nasty Girl" - but hasn't used it since early 2010.

** She also developed [[http://i.minus.com/ibhbLoXDFgQPJu.gif quite]] a [[http://i.imgur.com/CmJ7v.gif reputation]] for groping her opponents while pinning them. * ShipTease: Layla and Kaval. An NXT competition involved seeing which potential superstar was the best kisser but the men who kissed Margarita before Kaval looked to be in physical pain after doing so. Layla kissed Kaval in her steed but Michelle said that did not get him out of the contest.

** Layla also had a small one with ZackRyder at the 2012 Slammy Awards.

Commentators even felt sad when the two split up. They also seemed to care for Kaval as well, being unambiguously happy when he won NXT.

* TearsOfJoy: When Kaval won NXT Season 2 and when Layla won the Divas' Championship after returning from injury in 2012. But subverted hilariously when Layla won the Women's title; she instead kept jumping around screaming with delight.
