Today in History: Lay-Cool Become Co-Women’s Champions

On this day in history:

May 14th, 2010 | At a certain point in time, if you feuded with either Layla or Michelle McCool, you feuded with the both of them. Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix learned this the hard way when she had to defend her title in a Handicap match. Even the Glamazon couldn’t overcome the odds, and she was pinned by Layla. But, while technically that made Layla the Women’s Champion, Lay-Cool decided to split the title–literally–and reigned as unofficial co-champions until the title was unified with the Divas Championship later that year.
