Backstage news on why WWE is breaking up Miz and Maryse

Miz and maryse

Following the events of the past number of weeks, it appears that The Miz and Maryse will not be going forward as a couple anymore and Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas will be the sidekicks for the Intercontinental Champion going forward.

Dave Meltzer talked about WWE splitting up Miz and Maryse on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio and speculated that it might be happening because WWE now has Maria and Mike Bennett on SmackDown and they don’t want another couple on their programming:

“The end result is that they’re doing Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas as Miz’s new entourage and they’re dumping Maryse, I guess with the idea that because they’ve got Maria and Mike Bennett on the other brand, they don’t want another husband and wife team or something?”

It’s worth noting here Maria and Mike Bennett made their WWE debut at this Sunday’s Money In The Bank PPV. While they did not appear on screen during SmackDown two nights later, it was reported that they were on the show and delivered a promo similar to Sunday’s in front of Live Audience during a commercial break.

    Yes, the full year that they had been doing that storyline was very entertaining. His feud with Bryan was good. His feud with Cena was damned epic. But ever since he got traded to raw, the act has gone kinda cold.

  • Keith Learmonth

    Maryse could always go back to what she was doing before she returned… She seemed okay during that time.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    I doubt they’ll break them up. Maryce wouldn’t have anything else to do and I don’t think Miz would be ok with that.

  • MrDr3w

    You didn’t see or read about what happened at MITB? And it’s now four days later? Really?

    And I wouldn’t necessarily consider that phrase to be “little things,” because that phrase (or a variation of it), literally appears in EVERY article on this site now.

    Yep. Just another wasted talent to toss on the heap.

  • JC Bolden

    Aaaah let’s see. Let’s take something that’s working, has been working, and makes sense, and end it. Our home grown talent at that. Then put him with the former scrub squad or whatever their name was? Come on they’re setting Miz up to fail.

  • CC

    This is not backstage news of why they are splitting as the article clearly states that Meltzer is only speculating, and has no actual evidence that this is true.
    Speculation is not news.

  • MindTricked

    Everything about this is ridiculous.

    Actually i didnt. . . Cus didnt see it yet. . Stop picking on little things

  • D2K

    The Miz and Maryse were entertaining, so naturally Vince (he’s the one making these decisions) decides to stop it. If this doesn’t work of course, The Miz will be blamed.


  • MrDr3w

    “It’s worth noting that…”

    No. It’s not. Because everyone either saw it, or read about it.

    Why? Would make more sense to use it to start a few no? So I guess Maryse will just collect a pay check. Not bad!
