Maryse Says Her Manager Was Happy Of Her WWE Release; Ready For The Serious Stuff

SLAM! Wrestling has a new article online featuring quotes from Maryse. In it, she discusses her journey from the WWE Diva Search to the top of the Diva's division. Below is an excerpt:

"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.

"I would go back to WWE, for a million dollars and a main event match at Wrestlemania. But, no TNA."

    It sounds to be that Maryse just used WWE as a stepping stone.

      Just like WWE uses Diva's as eye candy. That's what they get for hiring models who wrestle, and doing nothing with Gail Kim type divas.

    • Alex

      So, can you blame her? Look at how WWE treats women in the company.

  • Da KiDD

    I'm gonna miss seeing her sexy tail…oooooweeeeee!! Both her and Kelly are fine, but Maryse had more sex appeal

  • Matt K

    A million dollars? lol. She overestimates her actual talent.

  • Patrick_Peralta

    Her manager obviously is not a Wrestling fan if he was happy she was done with Wrestling.

    • Alex

      Can't really blame him for that. Lets be honest, this isn't the attitude era anymore. Wrestling isn't considered cool in pop culture anymore.

    Maryse will be sorely missed. She was by far the HOTTEST Diva the WWE had. How could they let her go? I miss the Playboy days, when Divas were featured in my favorite magazine. I kept hoping they'd do a special issue of Playboy, featuring nothing but the WWE Divas. Maryse would be perfect for a Playboy layout. Maybe that's what she meant by being ready for a new project. We can only hope.
