Former WWE Divas Champion Layla was a guest on the latest edition of Vickie Guerrero’s “Excuse Me” podcast. She opened up on what she witnessed backstage when Michelle McCool started her relationship with The Undertaker.
Layla made it clear that Michelle didn't get preferential treatment just because she was romantically involved with The Undertaker. She added that the backstage reaction to the relationship at the time was indeed negative. She explained that people believed that McCool would get anything she wanted just because she was with The Undertaker.
“Michelle and I got told no many times. It wasn’t like we got what we wanted. It wasn’t like that. I can promise you that. I was there. I’m just going to be really honest about this. Michelle being married to Taker, or his girlfriend I think at the time, eventually, their marriage was a little bit after that, people were like, ‘Oh, she’s going to get whatever she wants.’ I was there to witness it. That was not the case. It had nothing to do with that.
