LayCool — the team of former WWE Women’s Champions Layla and Michelle McCool — have earned their place in history as the first and only “co-Women’s Champions”, and now thanks to their antics during their run from late 2009 to early 2011, they’ve earned a spot on WWE’s list of greatest tag teams, also.
Layla and Michelle have ranked #36 on the WWE.com list which counts down the top 50 teams in company history.
On the “flawless” duo, WWE.com writes:
Gleefully evil, unflinchingly vicious and better looking than everyone on this list besides Rick Martel, Team Lay-Cool tormented their opponents to the point that Mickie James broke down in tears when they infamously dubbed her “Piggie James” in front of a disgusted crowd. They were a nightmare, a pair of Roddy Pipers in press-on nails who toted around a bifurcated Divas Championship as if it was their very own tag title. Lay-Cool weren’t just attitude, though. When an unfortunate victim finally worked up the courage to fight back, Mich would kick them in the face while Lay cackled in the corner. They were wicked, but being bad never looked so good.
The pair broke up exactly one year ago this week. The friendship came to an dramatic end in a “Loser Leaves WWE” match at Extreme Rules 2011, which served as Michelle’s last night in WWE. Layla, on the other hand, has been away for much of the past year recovering from injuries sustained in that bout.
