Welcome to the fourth annual edition of our Diva Draft feature here at Diva Dirt! If you haven’t been with us over the last couple of years, the premise is simple — each year, we make several predictions/suggestions for the WWE Draft in the lead-up to it taking place. This year’s Draft is set for Monday and promises to shake things up once again. Check back over the next week leading up to the Draft for our picks!
LAYLA TO RAW
Flawless Ms Lay El, we just can’t stand to see you bullied no more! With LayCool imploding and Michelle McCruel coming out to play, maybe it’s time to separate the now former BFFs by moving Layla to Raw.
As the situation between Layla and Michelle escalates, we’d have the pair decide that SmackDown isn’t big enough for the both of ‘em. Lay and Cool would duke it out in a ‘Loser Leaves SmackDown’ match at Extreme Rules, with the loser (Layla) being moved over to Raw the next night. This match would serve as a finale to the one and a half year run of LayCool, going out with a bang with a big-time match — and separate the pair so we don’t get a boring 6-month rivalry between them on SmackDown.
Over on Raw, Layla, now a babyface, could hopefully be bumped up to Divas Title status in a feud with the Bella Twins. Layla, she of much spark and personality, is just the dynamic babyface champion the Divas division needs! Her quirky humor reminds me of one Trish Stratus and well, there’s a reason why she’s the first ever Diva Dirt Legacy Award winner. Layla certainly has the tools to be a funny, engaging babyface because she has a likability about her.
How about Melina vs Layla? That too would be an exciting fresh feud with both Divas on an even keel, as opposed to their previous matches.
Or you could just keep her as a heel but on a new show. There’s certainly got to be enough Divas that dislike her due to her antics in LayCool and may want to pick a bone with her. Eve Torres, Natalya and Gail Kim are all options to be paired with.
Your thoughts? Layla to Raw – yay or nay?
