Maryse Mizanin (née Ouellet) is a Canadian professional wrestler, professional wrestling manager, actress, businesswoman and glamour model currently signed to WWE under the ring name Maryse, where she is a former two-time Divas Champion, performing on the Raw brand as the manager of her real-life husband The Miz.
The stunning Maryse first broke onto the scene as a finalist in the 2006 Diva Search competition. A crafty and determined athlete from the start, she rapidly became one of the top competitors in WWE.
Using her wiles, along with her fierce French Kiss DDT finishing maneuver, Maryse rose through the ranks and created an impressive in-ring resumé. In addition to becoming the first two-time Divas Champion, the Montreal, Quebec battler held that prize for 216 days in a single reign — making her one of the longest-tenured Divas Champions in history.
Maryse’s accomplished skills between the ropes also made the French-Canadian Superstar an extremely talented manager, as she guided a number of her fellow contenders to squared circle success. It is that experience that should be of great concern to the WWE locker room. For after parting ways with WWE in October 2011, the ultra-dangerous Superstar returned in April 2016 to help her husband, The Miz, capture his fifth Intercontinental Championship. And from the way things look as she and her outspoken husband move to Raw in the Superstar Shake-up, she is out to make sure Miz continues his rise to the top.
Other media Edit
Ouellet also appeared in the January 2009 issue of Muscle & Fitness, along with Eve Torres and Michelle McCool. She and John Morrison were interviewed on Eurosport in the same year. She also made a special appearance on Redemption Song, which was hosted by WWE wrestler Chris Jericho, along with Candice Michelle, Mickie James, and Eve Torres. She has also appeared in several newspaper interviews, including Tokyo Headline, and was on the cover of Sessions Magazine in October 2010.
In 2012, Maryse was featured on the cover of Le Journal de Montréal, and on MDA Show of Strength with The Miz and other celebrities. In 2015, Ouellet had roles in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! and in Santa's Little Helper, the latter starring Ouellet's husband, The Miz. In the same year, she appeared on the E! reality television series WAGS. In 2016, it was announced that Maryse would appear as a main cast member on the sixth season of Total Divas, which prompted her return to WWE. In June 2017, Maryse along with Miz were cover of the DUB Magazine with a Jeep car.
Maryse has appeared in four WWE video games. She made her in-game debut at WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2010, later appearing in WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011, WWE '12, and WWE 2K18.
Other endeavors Edit
Following her release from WWE in 2011, Ouellet announced her plans for a clothing and jewelry line named House of Maryse.
Beginning in late 2013, Ouellet began working as a realtor in Los Angeles after spending a year earning her real estate license.
Personal life Edit
Ouellet is a native speaker of French, fluent in English, and she is able to read Spanish, although she cannot speak it. Ouellet has a tattoo of her late father's name, Guy, on her left wrist. She has a degree in business administration, and holds a black belt in martial arts. Her favorite actress is Scarlett Johansson, her favorite bands are Simple Plan and Nickelback, and she loves techno music. Ouellet is an avid supporter of animal rights and gay rights, and posed for the NOH8 campaign in 2011. Ouellet is Catholic.
In July 2011, Ouellet asked a judge for protection from 61-year-old "crazed fan" Lee Silber, and filed a request for a permanent restraining order. She claimed that Silber had sent "numerous terrifying letters to my home and left more than 50 voicemails on my personal cell phone all of which are extremely disturbing and delusional." In the filed documents and an interview for TMZ, Ouellet stated that she "feared for [her] life". She also explained that she had beefed up her personal security, and noted that Silber was a "crazy stalker ... who needs to either be in a psychiatric hospital or jail!". On August 3, the court granted her the restraining order.
In 2013, Ouellet got engaged to longtime boyfriend and fellow wrestler Mike Mizanin, best known by his ring name The Miz. The two were married in The Bahamas on February 20, 2014. The couple reside in Los Angeles, California. On September 11, 2017, Ouellet and Mizanin announced they are expecting their first child due in April 2018.
In 2016, she legally obtained a firearm after someone attempted to break into her home. The incident was featured on an episode of Total Divas.
