After spending years modeling, including winning Miss Hawaiian Tropic Canada in 2003, Ouellet was hired by the professional wrestling promotion 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 won her first WWE Divas Championship and held it for seven months, which is the third longest reign in the championship's history. 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 2011, she became the co-host of NXT and the manager of Ted DiBiase, prior to her release from the company in October 2011. In April 2016, she returned to the company, and became the manager of her husband The Miz.

Despite her elimination, she was invited to observe workouts and the training facility at WWE's developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), along with Brooke Adams.[1] Ouellet later said that she was "very, very excited", as it was her "dream to become a WWE Diva".[8]

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 official televised appearance 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.[10]

Maryse in 2008

By the time she began appearing regularly on SmackDown at the beginning of 2008, she had adopted a snobby attitude and become a villainous character.[9][11] 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 brawl between Maryse and Torres.[12] The following week, she was the first eliminated from another swimsuit competition.[13] On March 28, Maryse competed in a "Wet and Wild" match, teaming with Victoria against Cherry and McCool in a losing effort.[14] On a "SmackDown after the bell" video on WWE's 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.[15] On the May 16 episode of SmackDown, Maryse made her in-ring debut in a loss to Cherry, though she defeated Cherry in a rematch the following week.[16][17] On the June 6 episode of SmackDown!, SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero announced the creation of the WWE Divas Championship, and that same night the Divas competed in a Golden Dreams match to qualify for the championship match at The Great American Bash, which was won by Natalya.[18] On the July 4, 2008 episode of SmackDown!, she competed again in another Golden Dreams match to face Natalya for the championship, however she failed to win.[19] 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.[20]

Divas Champion (2008–2010)[edit]

Maryse began a rivalry with Michelle McCool in September 2008, unsuccessfully challenging her for the WWE Divas Championship at Unforgiven,[21] and in a rematch the following week on SmackDown, but failed to win on both occasions.[22] On the September 23 episode of ECW, Maryse defeated McCool in a non-title match.[23] After a month-long absence, Maryse returned at Survivor Series pay-per-view event in November, participating in a five-on-five Divas elimination tag team match, eliminating Kelly Kelly, Mickie James and Candice Michelle; Maryse was the sole survivor of her team, but was ultimately eliminated by Beth Phoenix.[24] At the Armageddon pay-per-view on December 14, Maryse teamed up with Jillian Hall, Victoria and Natalya in a losing effort to McCool, Maria, Kelly Kelly and Mickie James in an Eight-Diva Santa's Little Helper tag team match.[25] On December 19, Maryse pinned Maria to become the number one contender for Michelle McCool's Divas Championship.[26] The following week on SmackDown, Maryse defeated McCool, with Maria as the special guest referee, to win her first Divas Championship.[27][28] On December 28, at a house show in Raleigh, North Carolina, Maryse dislocated her knee in a tag team match against The Bella Twins. It was later announced that the injury was not major, and therefore only missed a few weeks action.[29] On the January 23, 2009 episode of SmackDown, Maryse returned and sat at ringside commentating during a Divas' tag team match.[29] She returned to in-ring action on February 20, teaming with Michelle McCool in a win against Maria and Eve Torres, where she pinned Torres.[30]

Maryse made her first appearance on Raw on March 2, as a commentator for a match involving the WWE Women's Champion Melina, with Maryse attacking her after the match.[31] The following week, Maryse made her in-ring debut on Raw in a champion vs champion lumberjill match, which she defeated Melina.[32] The rivalry extended to a tag team match on SmackDown on March 13, where Melina and Maria defeated McCool and Maryse.[33] On 27 March episode of SmackDown, Maryse made her first championship defense, losing by disqualification after the returning Gail Kim attacked Maryse and McCool, and thus retained the championship.[34] On April 5, Maryse competed in a 25-Diva Miss WrestleMania battle royal at WrestleMania XXV, but she was eliminated by Beth Phoenix and the match was won by Santina Marella (Santino Marella dressed in drag).[35] Maryse made her last appearance on SmackDown on April 24, retaining her championship against Gail Kim.[36]

As part of the 2009 WWE Draft on April 13, Maryse was drafted to the Raw brand, and in the process, the Divas Championship became exclusive to Raw.[37] She made her debut for the brand on April 27, teaming with Beth Phoenix, Rosa Mendes, and Jillian Hall in a loss to Santina Marella, Mickie James, Brie Bella and Kelly Kelly.[38] Maryse then began feuding with Mickie James after she cost James a number one contender's battle royal, which was eventually won by Kelly Kelly, by spraying hairspray in her eyes. The following week, Maryse lost a championship match against Kelly by disqualification, meaning the championship did not change hands, and won a subsequent rematch by pinfall two weeks later on June 8.[39][40] At Night of Champions on July 26, Maryse lost the Divas Championship to James.[41] Despite being only the second Divas champion, her reign of 216 days remained the longest in the title's history for nearly five years,[11] until AJ Lee surpassed her reign in January 2014.[42]

After losing the championship, Maryse underwent knee surgery.[43] She returned on the November 23 episode of Raw, disguised as The Gobbledy Gooker, as the guest timekeeper for a Thanksgiving-themed 6-Divas tag team match.

At WrestleMania XXVI, on March 28, she was part of the winning team of a 10-Diva tag team match with LayCool, Alicia Fox and Vickie Guerrero against Beth Phoenix, Mickie James, Gail Kim, Eve Torres and Kelly Kelly,[53] but the following night on Raw, she was pinned by Torres in a rematch.[54] Maryse lost the Divas Championship two weeks later to Eve Torres on the April 12 episode of Raw,[55] and was unsuccessful to regain it at Over the Limit pay-per-view in May.[56] At Fatal 4-Way on June 20, Maryse failed to regain the title in a Fatal Four-Way match that also involved then-champion Eve, Gail Kim, and Alicia Fox, which Fox would win pinning her to become the champion.[57]
