Extreme Rules Results: Layla Returns and Wins Divas Championship

She’s backkk!

The flawless Layla returned to the ring after nearly a year of inactivity due to injury and captured the Divas Title from Nikki Bella on her first night back.

Layla, who was injured at this very pay per view last year during a physical match with former BFF Michelle McCool, has been recovering from a torn ACL and MCL since May 2011.

Returning to the ring, Layla defeated the odds being stacked against her as Nikki and sister Brie tried to cheat several times during the contest. Ultimately, the Bellas’ patented Twin Magic backfired as, after Nikki switched places with Brie, Layla hit her Lay-Out finisher on Brie for the win.

As reported earlier, Beth Phoenix was pulled from the match continuing her injury angle with Executive Administrator Eve Torres revealing that she wasn’t cleared to compete.

Layla makes history as the first British woman to hold the Divas Championship. She also made history as the first British Women’s Champion.
