In a good news/bad news situation: ECW gains a Diva while Raw loses one. Katie Lea – along with ‘brother’ Paul Burchill – have been moved to the ECW roster, as of last night. Katie accompanied Burchill to the ring for his match with DJ Gabriel who had Alicia Fox in his corner. Thus bringing ECW’s Diva count to three.
I’m going to hazard a guess and suggest that this move was not made with Katie in mind, rather WWE just moved her because they moved Burchill. While Katie has been used as Jillian 2.0 on Raw, that’s still one heel Diva we’re missing from Raw. Hopefully, they start utilising Layla more often.
Though this could be a blessing in disguise as ECW talent appear on both Raw and SmackDown, so if WWE wanted to, Katie could eventually get the best of both worlds – competing in both the Raw and SmackDown women’s divisions. And hopefully, the Burchills debut in ECW leads to a mixed tag feud with Gabriel and Fox.
