Source: SLAM! WrestlingSpeaking to SLAM! Wrestling, Maryse Ouellet is looking forward to the future as she had been looking to leave the professional wrestling industry for a while.
"I just want better and bigger and I want to be performing on the big screen, I am working on a big project called House Of Maryse, which will be launching in summer 2012. It will be my clothing and jewelery selection and will be available in more than 500 stores in the U.S. and online at houseofmaryse.com," she says.
"I knew in my heart that I wanted to leave WWE for a long time. I'm a business woman. I need to build and grow and I didn't have any interest in the WWE anymore. I was like, next!
"My manager was happy when he heard of my release. He said to me, 'Now we can start working on the serious stuff.' I'm ready for a new chapter in my life. I have been with the WWE for six fantastic years, but now I want to do more."
Ouellet, however, is not ruling out a possible return to the sports entertainment empire.
"I would go back to WWE, for a million dollars and a main event match at Wrestlemania," she says.
"But, no TNA."
Ouellet also comments on her introduction to professional wrestling, auditioning for the 2006 Diva Search, her WWE persona, working with Ted DiBiase, and more. The article is available at this link.
