Maryse Ouellet Mizanin[6] (née Ouellet; born January 21, 1983) is a French Canadian glamour model, professional wrestler, professional wrestling valet, and business woman, better known simply as Maryse. She is best known for her time with WWE between 2006 and 2011.

After spending years modelling, including winning Miss Hawaiian Tropic Canada in 2003, Maryse was hired by WWE in August 2006, after she participated in the WWE Diva Search competition. She spent time in Ohio Valley Wrestling and Florida Championship Wrestling, WWE's developmental territories, before being assigned to the SmackDown brand in 2008. In December 2008, Maryse captured her first title with the company, the WWE Divas Championship, and held it for seven months, the longest reign in the championship's history at the time. In April 2009 she was drafted to the Raw brand, and won the Divas Championship for the second time in February 2010, making her the first wrestler to have held the championship on more than one occasion. In March 2011, she became the co-host of NXT, but was released from WWE in October 2011.

In late 2011, she announced plans for a clothing and jewellery line called House of Maryse, and later began working as a realtor.

Modelling career[edit]

Ouellet began her career as a beauty pageant contestant, winning Miss Hawaiian Tropic Canada 2003 and finishing second at the International Finals of Miss Hawaiian Tropic 2004.[1] She was also on the cover of Playboy's 2007 Girls of Canada calendar.[7]

Professional wrestling career[edit]

World Wrestling Entertainment / WWE[edit]

Diva Search and developmental territories (2006–2008)[edit]

In mid-2006, Maryse tried out for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)'s Diva Search.[1] She made the final cut and was one of the top eight, but was the second person eliminated on July 24. Despite her elimination, she was invited to observe workouts and the training facility at WWE's developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW).[1] Ouellet later said that she was "very, very excited", as it was her "dream to become a WWE Diva".[8] Ouellet was inspired to become a professional wrestler by Lita.[9]

Ouellet was officially signed to a WWE developmental contract on August 24, 2006 and was assigned to OVW for training.[1] She made her in-ring debut at a live event in December 2006.[1] In March 2007, she began wrestling in dark matches prior to the OVW television tapings.[1] In mid-2007, Ouellet began managing Sylvain Grenier.[10] When Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) opened in mid-2007, Maryse was transferred to the new developmental facility, and on September 25, she made her FCW debut as the valet of Ryan O'Reilly along with Lacey Von Erich.[1][10] She then started competing in singles and tag team competition, before managing Ted DiBiase, Jr. in December 2007.[10] She accompanied him to the ring when he captured the FCW Southern Heavyweight Championship.[10] She continued making sporadic appearances in FCW until January 2008.[10]

SmackDown (2006–2008)[edit]

On the September 22, 2006 episode of SmackDown!, Ouellet, known as simply Maryse, was shown on the TitanTron welcoming the Montreal viewers in French to the season premiere of SmackDown! on the CW Network.[1] Maryse made her first actual television appearance with her entrance theme on the May 21, 2007 episode of Raw to present American rapper Timbaland's new music video for the single "Throw It on Me", in which she had appeared.[11]

By the time she began appearing regularly on SmackDown at the beginning of 2008, she had adopted a snobby attitude and become a heel (villainous character).[10][12] On the March 7, 2008 episode of SmackDown, Maryse competed in a swimsuit contest against Victoria, Michelle McCool, Cherry, and Eve Torres, which ended in a fight between Maryse and Torres.[13] The following week, she was the first eliminated from the swimsuit competition.[14] On March 28, Maryse competed in a "Wet and Wild" match, teaming with Victoria against Cherry and McCool in a losing effort.[15] On a "SmackDown after the bell video" on WWE's official website, the tag team Deuce 'n Domino dumped Cherry (who had been their manager) and replaced her with Maryse.[1] Maryse then insulted Cherry, only for Cherry to slap her.[16] On the May 16 episode of SmackDown, she made her television in-ring debut in a loss to Cherry, though she defeated Cherry in a rematch the following week.[17][18] For several weeks, Maryse competed in six-person tag team matches with Victoria and Natalya against Cherry, Michelle McCool and Maria. She suffered a minor broken nose after receiving a bulldog from Maria in August 2008.[19]

Maryse lost in her first title match for the WWE Divas Championship against Michelle McCool at Unforgiven in September, resulting in a feud between the two Divas.[20] She then came up short once again in title rematch on SmackDown.[21] On the September 23 episode of ECW, Maryse defeated McCool in a non-title match.[22] After being off television for a month, Maryse returned at November's pay-per-view event Survivor Series to participate in the five-on-five SmackDown versus Raw Divas elimination match. Maryse was the sole survivor of the SmackDown team, but was ultimately eliminated by Beth Phoenix.[23] On December 19, Maryse pinned Maria to become the number one contender for Michelle McCool's Divas Championship.[24] The next week on SmackDown, Maryse beat McCool to become the new Divas Champion in a match with Maria as the special guest referee.[25][26] On December 28, 2008 at a house show in Raleigh, North Carolina, Maryse dislocated her knee in a tag team match against The Bella Twins, when one of the twins initiated a dropkick that landed on her kneecap. It was later announced that the injury was not too serious and that she would be able to return in a few weeks.[27] On the January 23, 2009 episode of SmackDown, Maryse returned in a non-wrestling role and sat at ringside commentating, during a Divas' tag team match.[27] Maryse returned to wrestling on February 20 in a tag team match with Michelle McCool and defeating Maria and Eve Torres.[28] On April 5, Maryse competed in a Divas battle royal at WrestleMania XXV, but the match was won by Santino Marella.[29]

As part of the 2009 WWE Draft on April 13, Maryse was drafted to the Raw brand; in the process, the Divas Championship became exclusive to Raw.[30] She made her Raw in-ring debut on April 27, teaming with Beth Phoenix, Rosa Mendes, and Jillian Hall in a loss to Mickie James, Santina Marella (Santino Marella dressed in drag), Brie Bella and Kelly Kelly.[31] Maryse began feuding with Mickie James, after she cost James a battle royal, won by Kelly Kelly, by spraying hair spray in her eyes. The following week, Maryse lost against Kelly by disqualification, meaning the championship did not change hands and won a subsequent rematch by pinfall two weeks later on June 8.[32][33] At the Night of Champions pay-per-view on July 26, Maryse lost the Divas Championship to James.[34] Her reign lasted 216 days, the longest in the history of the championship at the time.[12] Her record reign length was surpassed by AJ Lee in January 2014.[35]

She then took a hiatus from WWE to recover after having knee surgery.[36] Maryse made her return on the November 23 episode of Raw, disguised as The Gobbledy Gooker, as the guest timekeeper for a divas tag team match. After the match, she revealed herself by attacking Melina.[37] The following week, Maryse made her in-ring return on the November 30 episode, pinning Melina in a tag team match.[38]

In early 2010, a tournament was held for the newly vacated Divas Championship.[39] Maryse entered the tournament, and defeated Brie Bella and Eve Torres in the first round and semi-final respectively.[40][41] On February 22, Maryse defeated Gail Kim in the final to win the championship, becoming the first Diva to have held it twice.[12][42][43] The final was originally scheduled for February 21, at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, but the match was changed to the team of Maryse and Gail Kim against LayCool (McCool and Layla), which was won by the latter.[44][45] At WrestleMania XXVI she was on the winning team in a 10-Diva tag team match.[46] Maryse lost the Divas Championship two months later to Eve Torres on the April 12 episode of Raw, and was unsuccessful in attempts to regain it at Over the Limit and Fatal 4-Way in May and June respectively.[47][48][49]

DiBiase's manager and NXT (2010–2011)[edit]

Maryse was DiBiase's valet from 2010–2011.

On the June 21 episode of Raw, after Ted DiBiase fired Virgil, Maryse became DiBiase's new personal assistant.[50] Along with DiBiase, Maryse was announced as a mentor to Brodus Clay for the fourth season of NXT on November 30.[51] On Raw, on December 13, Maryse was involved in a battle royal to determine the winner of the Diva of the Year Slammy Award but was eliminated by Natalya.[52] Clay traded his mentors, Maryse and DiBiase, for Alberto Del Rio on the January 25, 2011, episode of NXT.[53] In late September 2010, Maryse was involved in an storyline with Goldust in which he stole the Million Dollar Championship from DiBiase.[54][55] They lost an subsequent mixed tag-team match against Goldust with Aksana as his partner.[56]

On the March 8, Maryse became the co-host of NXT alongside Matt Striker.[57] As part of NXT Redemption, Maryse was involved in several romantic storylines, most notably with Yoshi Tatsu, Lucky Cannon, and Hornswoggle.[58][59] Maryse competed in her final match in an battle royal which she failed to become the number one contender to the WWE Divas Championship.[60][61] In August, Maryse underwent surgery for an abdominal hernia and took time off WWE programming.[62][63] After two months of inactivity, Maryse was released from her WWE contract on October 28.[64]

Independent circuit (2012–present)[edit]

On October 5, 2012, Maryse appeared at the Family Wrestling Entertainment event, Back 2 Brooklyn, performing live commentary.[65] She appeared regularly for the promotion, performing live commentary during women's matches,[66][67] and began appearing on commentary throughout the show.[68]

Other endeavors[edit]

Following her WWE release, Ouellet announced her plans for a clothing and jewellery line called House of Maryse.[12]

Beginning in late 2013, Ouellet began working as a realtor in Los Angeles, California, after spending a year earning her real estate license.[69]

Other media[edit]

In April 2007, Ouellet appeared in Timbaland's music video "Throw It On Me" featuring The Hives.[70] Ouellet also appeared in the January 2009 issue of Muscle & Fitness along with Eve Torres and Michelle McCool.[71] 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.[72] She has also appeared in several newspaper interviews, including Tokyo Headline, and was on the cover of Sessions Magazine in October 2010.[73][74]

Personal life[edit]

Ouellet was born in Montreal, but grew up in New Brunswick.[1] In high school, Ouellet was the only girl in her class, and ran the school's fashion show.[7] She also began developing a range of makeup products.[7] Ouellet has a tattoo of her late father's name, Guy, on her left wrist.[5]

She has a degree in Business Administration and holds a black belt in martial arts.[1] Ouellet is a native speaker of French, and also speaks English, becoming fluent in English after two years.[7] She is also able to read Spanish, although she cannot speak it.[5]

In 2013, Ouellet got engaged to fellow professional wrestler Mike Mizanin, and the couple married in the Bahamas in February 2014.[69][75][76][77] The couple live together in Los Angeles.[69]
