WWE superstar Maryse was recently interviewed by GameSpot, where she discussed a number of topics. Among them were her hit reality TV show, “Miz and Mrs.”, a return to a WWE ring, women’s wrestling and more.
Below are some highlights from the interview:
On returning to WWE competition:
“I never say never,” Marsye told us. “When I had Monroe, I was back in the ring four months after giving birth. Five months after giving birth, I was main eventing Smackdown Live in a singles match, which has never really been done before, ever. So, if you were to ask me that when I was pregnant with Monroe, I would of laughed. I would have said, ‘No, come on. Let’s not get crazy here.’ And that happened. So, this second time around, I really don’t know what to expect because you never really know what to expect with WWE. That’s the beauty of WWE is that you just never know. And it just surprised us also because I been with this company for almost thirteen years and I still get surprised, so, never say never. You never know.”
On the WWE pay-per-view, Evolution:
“I think Evolution was a big moment where we really recognized women in this industry,” the former Divas Champion explained. “To me that’s when I really felt in my heart, ‘Wow, this is happening.’ And I was there with Monroe because that was a very important moment for me and for every other woman. We had women from every generation, also, that showed up because that really was a big moment.”
On females headlining Wrestlemania:
“It’s just to show you that there is no limits to all of this,” she continued. “And I know it might sound cheesy, but it’s true. The sky’s the limit. And for me, having a daughter, it just made me really happy. Women made it. It’s becoming the norm. Women are going to be in the room running stuff. It’s going to be the norm. It’s going to be the normality. So I think that the next goal is just that. It’s just to have men and women. You’re qualified, you’re good, then just go rock it, you know? It’s just a crazy time for the women in this industry. It’s just really insane to watch.”
