In Video: Layla Welcomes Back The Bella Twins

Former Divas Champion Layla was interviewed by Matt Striker last night in a segment filmed for WWE Active, and she discussed the return of the Bella Twins.

Brie and Nikki Bella made their returns on Raw in a backstage segment featuring Divas Champion Kaitlyn, Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow, and Layla had some words for the twins.

Layla, currently the longest tenured Diva, as pointed out by Striker, said, “They [The Bellas] are veterans. They are smart. They can also be conniving, just from my experience in the past and I think it’s going to change things up and it’s going to make it more competitive.”

The last-ever Women’s Champion has some history with Brie and Nikki, and she declared that all the Divas should be wary of the Bellas and “need to keep their eyes wide open.”

It was Layla who defeated Nikki Bella back in April 2012 to win her first Divas Championship, so Nikki will surely have revenge on her mind.

    Layla’s so sweet, but is it just me..or is she getting a bit…errr…just a tad, slightly putting on a little weight? Like it’s soooo barely noticeable right, but I’m just wondering. The reason why I point it out is because I’m worried that any little slip up on her part will give her the pink slip. She’s been there since 06 and she’s reacing the traditional career lenght for a woman wrestler in WWE. I think she’s got a good 4 years left imo, but WWE might feel differently. Ot atleast some people in management. I just want Layla to be like Trish, who every year got better and more beautiful. She changed her style constantly and refined her moves, a lot of reinvention to keep things fresh. I want Layla to learn to do the same, asap!

      It’s her Top. The way it fits on her makes her look bulky because of her bust.

      • art

        lay’s hasn’t put on weight shes always been curvy so i think its the dress…

  • redsandman99

    I think that the Bellas returning might very well nix the speculated Layla heel turn for now.

  • sieghrt

    I’m starting to hate Lay’s new hair color.. It kinda makes her look older than the usual :| I want the brunette Layla back, it makes her look younger!

    • Ace Of Base

      Yes I agree! This blonde hair is brave and she’s cool for taking chances, but it is making her look 40 and that is not a good thing in WWE’s vision of a beautiful woman.Layla is gorgeous, but blonde…no Lay, just no…


        Completely agree. She was even more beautiful as a brunette

      • sieghrt

        Lay looks a lot younger, and so not 34/35ish in her Brunette look. Being blonde makes her look like a stripper from sunset blvd. (no offense but but =____= that’s how I see her)

        • jonboi

          I read some where that lalya lied on the DS about her age, is this true? And if so what was the story!!

        • art

          she’s 35 now so she was 27 on the divasearch i’ve never read she lied about her age…

  • xLitaFan4Everx

    Cool video. One thing though, Layla needs to ditch the Blonde and go back to Brunette. If Layla was fair and had blue/green/grey eyes it would look fab but it just looks brassy and dried out. She looks so much better as a Brunette in my opinion. :\

  • Melissa

    The blonde is aging the poor girl.

  • wl75

    I totally agree that Layla should go back to brunette- it just really doesn’t match with her skin tone.

    I also agree the Bellas coming back might scratch a possible turn- maybe Cody is gonna turn face at some point and team with Kaitlyn against Sandow and the Bellas?

  • shameronstar

    How ironic considering Layla practically retired the twins or so she thought;)

  • lucky1now

    I hope with the return comes great storylines not ok storylines make it all worth it

    • J.D.C.D.

      Same here. I’m hoping maybe Layla will still go heel with the Bellas. I liked how the WWE teased her going after Kaitlyn’s Diva’s title. I hope that comes about.

  • shameronstar

    If Layla adds a perm she’ll be channeling her inner Tina Turner!

  • Mr. AJ Lee

    This all blond Laula looks terrible. And I think Layla is one of the prettiest girls the E has. Like everyone else I think she looks way better as a Burnett. But I also didn’t mind th little blond highlights she has had before going all the way blond.

  • WweRules32

    love layla loads and also when i go to watch the vid there is no sound anyone else having that problem?

    • art

      yes im having the same problem…

  • Matt

    She needs to go back to brunette. The darker the better. Dark hair is striking on her, this just looks like a bad wig. I don’t know why nobody has said anything to her.

  • velvelove

    When wwe hires women for their looks wrestling fans get pissy.
    Then you come on a website and 9/10 comments are about hair.

  • Number One

    I really hope they don’t back out on Layla’s heel turn because of the Bellas. The way I see it, Layla is so, so close to turning to the point that it may happen as soon as Friday night on SD.

  • art

    I just hope the bellas dont get the title i mean they haven’t been in the ring in ten months plus they weren’t that good beforehand so i hope they train to be better wrestlers & i like them better as faces then heels….

    • Number One

      I’m with you. Especially on the last part. The Bellas were great as heels, but I want them to be faces.

  • Raekon

    I really hope they keep going with the storyline between Layla, Kaitlyn and Tamina cause if they drop all of this only so the Bellas can immediately grab the title it will be the worst thing ever!

    It’s ok that they returned but PLEASE keep them out of the title picture for now.

    Let Layla, Kaitlyn and Tamina have their time, they all deserve it and both Layla and Kaitlyn had no real Title runs yet(except of Laylas Laycool title run).

  • AJFan95

    Yeah, the blonde hair doesn’t suit Layla whatsoever. I wouldn’t even mind scrapping Tamina and getting Layla/Kaitlyn vs. The Bellas at Mania.

  • aldo

    So, with the Bellas back, what’s next for them?…There are not enough face divas now…

  • Hands.ofthe.Wicked

    Did anyone else notice the way Layla said in the “advice for Kaitlyn” Keep your mouth shut, her and matt both smiled, as if Kaitlyn has been trying to come up with ideas for her title run or something, and shes been shut down and so shes been pissed off about it, talking about management or something, hence why she is never featured on TV any more…??? Just thought that was weird.

  • Flawless_Don

    I bet Layla would look so good with her hair colored black with red strips in them.

  • OJ Von Erich


    1. Stop bitching about Layla’s hair, she will do what she likes you bitchy queens!

    2. The Bella’s are better than Kaitlyn in the ring, so stop moaning!

    Seriously, you lot are the worst, most criticizing diva fans ever!!!!

    • art

      i’d say all three are on the same level…

  • divaindemise

    The Bellas returning isn’t a good sign for someone already struggling to extend more time as a WWE Diva. Layla is entertaining but it seems to me that the shock of blonde hair is to compensate for the fact it’s otherwise easy to overlook her given the way she’s being managed at the moment.
