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.
