Maryse Discusses Her WWE Debut, Her Release, The Current State Of The Divas Division, More

Maryse recently participated in an interview with Wrestling101, in which she discusses her release from WWE, her future, and more. When asked to describe her WWE debut in 2006, she responded:

Hard because I couldn’t understand anybody, but I learned so much. I learned how to listen carefully to everything, every detail, and I think that I needed a character that people could relate to, without speaking, which is very hard. I developed a heel persona and everything about Maryse was presentation, facials, gestures….. Over the years, I learned how to work a live crowd and perfect my craft. I believe that Maryse’s persona was the best female persona in years within the WWE.

When asked about the state of the current Divas division, Maryse said:

There is a lot of potential right now in the Womens Division, but a lack of investment from the management! They deserve better. It’s hard to make a crowd relate to you and be behind you or against you with a 2 minute match every week with no microphone time. Once again, you have to be able to speak to make people relate to you! Hopefully it will change over time!

Maryse was also asked what she thought when she was released by WWE last year, to which she responded:

Wow, I do not have to travel 300 days a year anymore! I felt FREE.

    I dont miss her 😛

  • Patrick_Peralta

    I miss her

  • steve2

    She was almost as bad as Kelly Kelly

  • Bruce

    i don't miss her heel persona-but i do miss her looks!!

  • Jas

    She was a great heel. And yes, I would agree with her, that she was one of the best female personas in years. She could get across what she was trying to say without even saying a word. Her face said it all. Always thought her talent was extraordinarily wasted.

  • Zach

    When given the right situation, she was hilarious. I used to love when she would scream in french at everyone.

  • Hunter

    She wasn’t the best wrestling diva for sure, but she played her character well and could actually tell a story through a match

  • Msuth

    She's alright. Almost as hot as kelly kelly

  • Bruno

    That chick was hotter than Kelly

    • Farnsworth

      So much hotter than Kelly Kelly. Maryse was a woman; Kelly Kelly is a girl.

  • Sebastian

    Yet another voice talking bout how bad a state the Divas division is in, when are the WWE going to show that division some respect, TNA are pulling their pants down at the moment in regards to Divas wrestling.

  • Farnsworth

    She's right about the matches. They're way too short, and without mic time, what's the point? How do you drive a program without any mic time? When Michael Cole would interrupt Diva matches, it was the only time I agreed with him. They are pointless now.
