Charisma? Check. Mic skills? Check. In-ring ability? Check!
WWE's resident "English Muffin" Layla is one of the few WWE Divas who are truly all-rounded performers and she has been given the chance to show it over the past couple of years.
Before LayCool formed, I'll admit, I had my doubts about Layla. I saw her as plain, average and just there.
Her move to Smackdown and consequent alliance with Michelle McCool is seriously the best thing that could have happened to the career of Layla El.
This platform gave her the chance to show just how much personality she has and how much she has grown as a wrestler and mic worker.
LayCool should have been an impossibly irritating gimmick, but Layla's overwhelming charisma made it entertaining and just fun.
In the ring, Layla is another girl who I think is criminally underrated. Although she's been overshadowed by the ring work of Michelle, I see Layla at the top of the "Diva" pile.
This pile also involves rising talents like Eve, Maryse and Alicia, so there is a bit of competition there.
Before long, I see Layla catching up with the likes of Michelle, Natalya and Melina, simply because she just seems to get it. She looks comfortable in the ring, whether she's selling or on the offense.
Her arsenal of moves is also constantly increasing, with her trying out top rope moves and using her Jiu-Jitsu training (much like Eve) all the time.
Her finisher-the Layout neckbreaker—is also a great move and I appreciate the way she experiments different ways of executing the move.
Her in-ring psychology is another thing to note. Layla is great at picking a body part and working it for the rest of the match.
Layla is one of the top girls right now, and I would like it to stay that way once she splits from McCool.
