On March 22nd, 2012 in a match at FCW (Florida Championship Wrestling), Layla El returned to the ring.
I wondered how long it was gonna take her to get back up to the "Big Leagues" and it wasn't long as she replaced Beth Phoenix in a match for the WWE Divas Championship at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view on April 29th.
That night she took on and defeated Nikki Bella to win the WWE Divas Championship.
The next night on Raw, she took on the departing Bella Twins in a triple threat match and retained the title.
Layla has quite a bit of WWE championship history as she is the first British woman to hold the championship, the first Diva Search winner to win the championship, and the last recognized WWE Women's Champion before they retired that belt.
