The Orlando Sentinel recently interviewed WWE Superstar and wife of The Miz, Maryse, who discussed her upcoming match at WrestleMania, where she and her husband will face John Cena and Nikki Bella. Below are some highlights from the interview.
Maryse on being in a match with her husband at WrestleMania: “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.”
Maryse on her emotions for the event: “I have so many emotions. I’m excited, 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.”
Maryse on her confidence for her training: “Let’s just say, I’m good. Nikki should be scared.”
Maryse on playing a character that’s easy to hate: “I love playing a character. 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 on why she and Miz work so well together: “We’re just a good couple. 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.”
