Today in History: Michelle McCool says goodbye and Kharma says hello

On this day in history:

May 1st, 2011 | Layla and Michelle McCool, once thick as thieves, met at 2011’s Extreme Rules in a match that was destined to split them for good: a Loser Leaves Town match. The duo formerly known as Lay-Cool did battle, and the ending was bittersweet: Layla defeated Michelle and cried when she realized what that meant. Michelle cried too, left alone in the middle of the ring as the fans sang the common “goodbye” refrain. Soon, though, she had more to cry about than just the end of her career: Kharma‘s music suddenly played, and the debuting Superstar came upon Michelle like she was a trapped rat, decimating her with an Implant Buster.
