Divas Championship - Layla

April 29, 2012 - September 16, 2012

Nikki Bella thought she was in for an easy night at Extreme Rules after her original opponent, Beth Phoenix, was deemed medically unable to compete. However, Eve, executive administrator for GM John Laurinaitis, informed the champion that she would be facing a mystery opponent. That turned out to be Layla, returning after a year-long absence due to a knee injury. The Bellas' attempt to use Twin Magic behind the official's back blew up in their face, as Layla hit Brie with the Layout neckbreaker to claim the Divas Championship.
