Maryse Ouellet Speaks Out – “I Wanted To Leave WWE For A Long Time”

Speaking to SLAM! Wrestling, Maryse Ouellet is looking forward to the future as she had been looking to leave the professional wrestling industry for a while.

“I just want better and bigger and I want to be performing on the big screen, I am working on a big project called House Of Maryse, which will be launching in summer 2012. It will be my clothing and jewelery selection and will be available in more than 500 stores in the U.S. and online at,” she says.

“I knew in my heart that I wanted to leave WWE for a long time. I’m a business woman. I need to build and grow and I didn’t have any interest in the WWE anymore. I was like, next!

“My manager was happy when he heard of my release. He said to me, ‘Now we can start working on the serious stuff.’ I’m ready for a new chapter in my life. I have been with the WWE for six fantastic years, but now I want to do more.”

Ouellet, however, is not ruling out a possible return to the sports entertainment empire.

“I would go back to WWE, for a million dollars and a main event match at Wrestlemania,” she says.

“But, no TNA.”

Ouellet also comments on her introduction to professional wrestling, auditioning for the 2006 Diva Search, her WWE persona, working with Ted DiBiase, and more. The article is available here.

    I didn’t think Maryse was bad but she is not as good as she thinks.

    I like Maryse a lot not just because of the looks but that she tried her best. But like I said once already not really big on women division in pro wrestling. There is only one reason why I watch women wrestling an I will be honest about it it is the looks. I wonder how many people will have the same honesty. It is like when Stacy Kimberly left she was hot that was it. But a pro wrestler no she was not and neither was Maryse. Now Trish that was another story he has looks an moves which was rear in pro wrestling.

    Is this girl still rumored to be dating the Miz? Seems insulting to refer to pro-wrestling as non-serious stuff when your boyfriend is a major player on Raw.

    @Myers, Yuuuuup. I mean she was easy on the eyes but that was about it. Anyone besides me ever notice she has hideously long arms?

  • Myers

    And a good majority of us wanted her to leave for a very long time as well.
