– Speaking to WWE Magazine, Layla reveals that she has no plans on resuming her dancing career—prior to joining WWE in 2006, she was a dancer for Carnival Cruise Lines, the Miami Heat franchise of the National Basketball Association, and also danced for Kanye West at the MTV Video Music Awards.
“I would always be willing to do something for charity for WWE, but I’ve moved on from that part of my life. I was happy when I heard the Miami Heat had won the championship this year, but I also felt smug since I had already got my championship ring with them. First time’s a charm!”
The former WWE Divas Champion also reveals that she would like to peek inside the male wrestlers’ locker room. She states, “Not because I want to secretly check them out or anything, but I’d love to get a glimpse at the dynamic going on in there. All them always try to play it so cool. I want to see them in their natural habitat.”
