Maryse on her upcoming Wrestlemania match: “Nikki should be scared”

WWE

At Wrestlemania 33, we shall see Nikki Bella and John Cena take on Maryse and The Miz in a mixed tag match! And with this being the first in-ring contest that the Sexiest of Sexy will be take part in since 2011, Mrs Mizanin is definitely under a lot of pressure.

Maryse recently sat down with the Orlando Sentinel to discuss her upcoming match. Below are the highlights:

When asked about getting the opportunity to compete alongside her husband, Maryse said: “at WrestleMania, with my husband, in the same ring, the same match? If you had asked me if that was possible five years ago, I would have laughed in your face. Now it’s really happening.”

“We’re just a good couple,” Maryse said when asked about her chemistry with husband The Miz. “We complement each other really well, help each other 24-7 and have a really good time. Playing our characters – I mean, we come from Hollywood, so we’ve got that. We don’t think twice, we just do it.”

With this being her most high-profile match to date, Maryse said that she had “so many emotions.” regarding it. “I’m excited,” she continued. “I can’t wait, but I do have some butterflies. … I’ve proved in the past that I can accomplish big things, but I’m coming back so people can see what I can do.”

In regards to her training, Maryse was anything but unconfident. “Let’s just say, I’m good,” She stated. “Nikki should be scared.”

She was then asked about what it’s like to work with the WWE, and she boasted about how much passion she has for the job. “I love playing a character,” she started. “When I see fans in the street or at meet-and-greets, it’s great. Sometimes they want me to be that person they see on TV, take a picture with a hand in their face or ask me to ‘be mean like you do.’ But I can’t play that character 24-7. Before I cross in front of the curtain [at WWE shows], I flip a switch and become that Maryse. There’s no career like it.”

Maryse will compete alongside her husband The Miz at Wrestlemania on April 2nd on the WWE Network!

    Wasn’t it Victoria who once said that Maryse is one of those performers who has a lot in common with her TV persona? Haha. I think she’s fabulous and she knows it!

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      That’s just it. She’s fab and she know it. But Maryse is really a nice girl. From what I see of her on Total Divas I can tell she one of those people you’d think is stuck up at first but once you actually get to know them they are actually sweet.

    • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

      Or maybe Victoria was on a bad day? I dont remember Maryse having any problems on the backstage except clear with Bellas.

      • glassjaw

        I’m pretty sure Victoria was being playful, or referencing Maryse being as naturally flamboyant as she is on screen. I don’t think it was serious shade, that isn’t Lisa Marie Varon’s style. With the exception of Dixie Carter, obviously.

  • QueenSableBomb

    QUEEEEEEEEEEEN

  • MK126

    Im really happy to see her in the ring again. Although I know she’ll enter to The MIz’s music I wish we could hear like a mashup of their themes. I feel like shes been low-key training and didn’t tell anyone. I mean I doubt they’d put her in a match knowing she hasn’t been in the ring in 5 year to only have her train for a month when shes gonna have to shake loads to ring-rust off. Either way this is gonna be a pretty solid match I feel

    • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

      She’s just showing videos in the gym, and that makes me think it’s to make her stronger and more resilient… Which makes me think maybe she’ll hit Nikki with the Rack Attack. Maybe she’s training at home with Miz, or before the shows after the ring is ready.

      • MK126

        I hope she’s been training. Like I said I don’t think they’d put her in a match at WM with her years of ring rust. Even last year Lana did well in her match although she didn’t do much. If she wasn’t training then it wouldn’t be a tag match but more or less Cena w/ Nikki vs Miz w/Maryse at ring side

      • Lushluke

        Maryse won’t do the rack attack silly

        • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

          Why not?

          • Lushluke

            Wtf would she

          • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

            to mock nikki cuz nikki can’t anymore

  • MafiaMM

    Please WWE! Let Maryse come out to her own theme and by herself in grand fashion!

  • It’s almost a year since she return to WWE to finally enter the ring again and is on the big leagues, Love It! I really want to see their entrance together.

  • MeddlingDiva

    Sorry to distract you but Paige or Xavier Woods shouldn’t be SAVED

    • mking2590

      You saw what she did to NXT women championship

      • MeddlingDiva

        Nope. I only saw 4 mins. Ugh, it ended with Xavier

        Tell me

        • Geek God

          This chick had took pics of dudes ejaculating on the divas championship for her!!! Idc what anyone says that’s nasty and disgraceful And now they need to change that belt after she ruined it

          • Ken Lushh

            whaaaat where

    • Gabriella Panajotova

      Paige is actually having a mental breakdown. The situation is not funny, her family expresses genuine worry about her doing something :/

      • MeddlingDiva

        Sooooo she still got a job for now. IMO the family needs to take her back to England for awhile

    • StraightFire

      Lets not.

        @diannadahlgrenqueen:disqus this yo girl?

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    Maryse is just so cute to me. For some odd reason I just wanna pinch her cheeks get lots of hugs from her. Especially when she talks. Her accent just melts heart.

  • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

    Maryse is the most badass women in WWE’s recent years since 90’s decade. If she had passion to come back as wrestler she would put the division under her feets.

  • StraightFire

    I mean, she has 5 years worth of ring rust and she was decent until her injury so I’m not expecting much from her. But I know she’ll probably be passable and people here are gonna act like she’s the next Manami Toyota.

    • Ken Lushh

      this just killed me.

    • Shady

      Tea

    • Mark

      Please remember that after Maryse came back from her knee injury she wasn’t motivated anymore. She didn’t really care… When she did care, she fucking slayed. When she came back she couldn’t even be bothered and kept tagging out of matches and just doing 1-2 moves. She is training hard for Mania and is motivated again. She’s gonna surprise people cause she is super athletic!

      • StraightFire

        I know, that’s why I said she was decent before her injury. Motivation is great but she hasn’t wrestled a match in roughly 5 years. And As you said, the last time she wrestled before she left, she didn’t care. So I’m going to keep my expectations low.

  • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

    I think Maryse’s gonna hit Nikki with the Rack Attack and obviously the French TKO

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    Maryse is a great personality, but she was never all that as a wrestler. If she hasn’t been training during her time as a manager I don’t think she’ll be very impressive on WM.

    • Seraphina Rosenhart

      I’m fairly sure that she has been training. She would have known about this match for a while before we did.

  • I’m so ready. Her attire is gonna be iconic.

    • Pearlita Marie McGee

      I just hope that she won’t wear pants. XD

  • I want on SD Maryse and Miz to annoy Daniel again, only for him to put Maryse in a singles match, but since she hasn’t had a match in years he gives her an option to choose any woman in the lockeroom.

    She chooses Renee and beats her up, that way Maryse can look strong and we can hear Pourquoi gain.

    • trishlita721

      My God yessssss this would also link there previous story.

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      I’m going to be so disappointed if we don’t get to hear it

    • Danny?

      YAS this would be ICONIC! Plus I need to hear Pourquoi again, and more often to be quite honest.

    • Darren C. #Anti-Marks ?

      But Renee isn’t a wrestler, or did you forget that Maryse was fined for beating her? Maryse should choose the champion and then Miz help her win. She would get a title match and maybe win if Brie didn’t come back to stop her.

      • Maryse fighting an experienced wrestler wouldn’t prove her dominance, and neither would Miz’s interference. If Daniel says “any woman” she could choose Renee because he wasn’t so clear. Just my thought.

    I can’t wait, I’ve waited 6 years for this moment.

  • Michelle D

    Maryse is just a joke just like her husband. John and Nikki will kick there ass.

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      It’s “their”….. “There” refers to a place……..

    • Seraphina Rosenhart

      You know it’s scripted right?

  • Gail-Rollins Fan

    Omg y’all I think the rumors about Kelly are true. Look she had a match:

    https://twitter.com/cmll_oficial/status/842932921619034112

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      I thought for a moment that it was her lol

    • Jo9834

      Kelly slayed that crossbody, a true ring technician with a WM moment right there, the crowd would pop so loud.

    • PYM #TheRoadTo5

      i was screaming how the crowd was like “ooOOOOOAHHHHHHowwww”

    • Summer_Slay #KellyToSaveRAW

      more like aksana in her halloween costume on nxt tbh

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      So wrong lol. That poor thing that had to hurt and I can’t believe the other women just stood there lol. I know they were in a match but dang girl could have really been hurt. Watching that really has my chest hurting lol but you know Kelly never botched like that.

    • I don’t know him

      You mean Sasha Banks in a blonde wig,there’s only one woman in WWE that botches like that Sasha.

      • Seraphina Rosenhart

        Lolz, wtf are you talking about? Sasha has never once botched like that. Plus, some of the moves Sasha has pulled off have been amazing.

        • I don’t know him

          Really? Lol you Sasha fans are blind,Sasha can’t even perform a body slam cause she’s so damn small weak and botch prone. And injury prone.

          • Seraphina Rosenhart

            I’m a fan of all of the women. I don’t play favorites. And this is wrestling. Strength doesn’t matter here because it’s all scripted. What matters is your moveset, fluidity and technique. Sasha has a large moveset that has both technical and high flying moves, as well as very fluid and complex movements. She’s one of the best women on the roster today. Her NXT matches against Becky and Bayley prove that. And her main roster matches against Charlotte as well.

          • I don’t know him

            You lost all credibility when you said Sasha Banks is fluid and has a great moveset, All she does is spamming knee attacks and botching suicide dives. She has a shitty dropkick that can’t even reach her opponents chest. A diva flying clothesline and a 2009 Kelly Kelly tilt a whirl head scissors.

            Plus she’s had the same lame ass finisher since 2014.

            Stop bringing up NXT if she can only have passable matches with people she trained with,that means she’s garbage and hardly the best in WWE.

            Alicia fox can have good matches with anyone hell she carried Kelly Kelly,aksana,Rosa in fcw,Brie Bella,Nikki Bella to good matches. And she meshes with Every nxt diva from Paige in 2014 to a rookie Alexa Bliss in Nxt.

            But nobody is giving her any praise,plus the woman invented a wrestling move and has three finishers. While Sasha is doing the same botchy shit since NXT.

            Bye.

    • Mark

      Rofl I am dead. But that can’t be Kelly. She’d run for the turnbuckle, think again, decide to go on the apron instead and come off with a botched thesz press.

  • Jo9834

    Im not expecting a lot from Maryse, but just seeing her back in the ring will be a treat in itself. I am pretty sure Nikki will be doing all the heavy lifting during their parts (bumping, selling etc), Maryse will spend most if not all of her time taunting and hitting a few of her signatures. John and Nikki will finish up with sequence and STO combo for the win.

    PS does anyone else get the feeling John Cena will propose to Nikki in the ring? I have this hunch thats what’s happening, this match was so random and John is way too much of a big deal to be relegated to a Tag match like that.

  • Danny?

    YAS Maryse slay us all at WrestleMania

  • Don Prima

    Would love to see Maryse’s French TKO again. Can’t wait for the match!

  • Summer_Slay #KellyToSaveRAW

    The more important question is will we hear this tho?

    • Angelica Marie MoNae

      This was the moment that brought about my dream maryse and Kelly team.

  • I don’t know him

    People talking about Maryse was decent and she’ll be rusty,blah blah but praising Sasha Banks who wrestles like she has 5 years worth of ring rust. Ole girl been on botchomania more than Maryse and Kelly combined.

    Maryse should become SD champ. Becky and Alexa did it. And they’re boring and botch prone as well.

    • Shady

      How is this comment serious

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Sasha on botchamania? Screams. I don’t recall her having that many botches. Sasha is great in the ring, nice try.

      • I don’t know him

        Girl she’s been on every botchomania since her call up. Even her “epic” match with Bayley in NXT made botchomania.

        You don’t recall her having so many botches because your bias and blind. Go watch botchomania I bet she’s on there right now. Botching something.

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          First off what the fuck is botchomania? It’s botchamania. Second off, you’re the one who’s delusional because Sasha barely botches and when she does, she covers it up well.

          • I don’t know him

            You know what the fuck botchomania is, you Sasha fans always bring up the Bella’s being regulars on there.

            And no Sasha covers up botches by landing on her head.

            Oop

  • Mark

    Lmfao I fucking love Maryse so much. Everything about her is gold. NO ONE can touch her in character. Her promo on SD was the best thing that’s happened in the SD women’s division since the segment between Becky and Alexa before the tables match when Alexa put Becky through the table! I’m excited to see Maryse perform at Mania. I follow her on Instagram and the girl trains like crazy. I’m ready to see those fierce combination of kicks, hair pulls and her sexy style of wrestling again.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Nikki better watch out for the deadly mat slam!
