Layla recently spoke with Complex.com. Here are the highlights…
On What Fans Gets Out of Video Games: I think for the fans this is a dream come true. You get to see us on TV and sometimes you get to see us live, but with the video games you get to actually control us and pull off these moves. It just feels real and I’m sure it makes them feel like they’re in the ring or that they’re part of the match. And they get to pick their favorites, which is awesome.
On Becoming the First Ever British Women’s Champion: It was great to be Women’s Champ anyway, but to know I stamped something in history was mind-blowing, shocking, and it’s great to feel like I’m living the dream. It was a great moment.
On Being in a Video Game: It’s actually very surreal because they look real. Everything looks so real—the outfits and the facial expressions. It’s kind of creepy.
Natalya Neidhart says that she will write a book one day about her career. Natalya told Greg Oliver of Slam Wrestling that she writes everything about her career in a journal and sends Bret Hart “long emails and things to really document my feelings,” and that she “100 percent guarantees” she’ll do a book one day.
UK women’s wrestler Britani Knight (real name Saraya-Jade Bevis) made her WWE developmental debut at Thursday night’s FCW show in Tampa.

Knight signed a WWE developmental contract in the fall of 2011 after receiving two tryout matches.
At 19 years old, Britani Knight is one of the youngest (if not the youngest) divas to be signed to WWE.
