On this day in history:
August 16th, 2006 | The 2006 Diva Search came to an end in a special live broadcast. The weeks-long competition, which featured the likes of Rosa Mendes and Maryse, came down to Layla and Jen England. When Layla’s name was called, she could hardly contain her excitement, jumping up and down and hugging fans. She has since become the Diva Search winner with the longest WWE run, surpassing Christy Hemme, Ashley Massaro and Eve Torres.
