As noted earlier, WWE announced today that they have released Maryse Ouellet. As is customary, they wished her "the best in all of her future endeavors." She had been with the company since 2006.

Ouellet took to her Twitter to comment on her release, writing, "I'M OUT and sexier than ever! Thanks to all my fans, colleagues and @WWE Universe. Time to party! 'Release' party tonight at @trousdale LA... Im Happy, im Smiling, and FREE, now its time to get Naughty ............BE SEXY"

The former two-time Divas Champion has been off television since early August. She then underwent surgery on August 24 for an abdominal hernia.
