WWE star Maryse recently spoke with Sportsnet’s The Big Show about her mixed-tag team matchup at this Saturday’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view, where Maryse tags with her husband, The Miz, to take on WWE Hall of Famers Edge and Beth Phoenix. Highlights from the interview are below.
Says she thought that WrestleMania 33 would be the last time she shared a ring with the Miz in WWE:
“This Saturday, I’m thinking about it and getting very excited. After WrestleMania 33, I thought ‘maybe this is the last time we’re going to be together in the ring,’ and it wasn’t. It’s surprising. It’s very surprising because I kept getting the question, ‘are you ever going to be back in the ring?’ I really didn’t know. You never know and there you go.”
On her history with Beth Pheonix:
“I first met with Beth I came to OVW in 2006. She was already in Ohio Valley Wrestling, I was coming from Montreal, couldn’t even speak English. We go back. Now, 2022, we’re both married, both have two little girls, it’s one of those things where sometimes you have to pinch yourself and go, ‘Woah, time has passed and we are now doing this.’ It’s insane and so much fun for us to be able to do what we love and to do it together. I have a lot of respect for Beth. She’s not only awesome in the ring, but as a person. She’s someone I’m really happy to get in the ring with. I’ll kick her butt, but that’s a different story.”
