- Maryse reflected on accomplishing her dream of sitting in on a television meeting and pitching a television show while also running a successful production company:

The end of a year is an opportunity to look back and reflect on everything we’ve accomplished, learned, and how we’ve grown over the past 365 days.

I am blessed to be a mom to two wonderful daughters that amaze and teach me something new every single day. As all working mothers experience, the work/life balance can be challenging to master. This year showed me how to tackle the business world while still being there for the girls. I learned I can do both.

Any new venture can be scary - I was nervous to break in to the beauty and skincare market. What started out as an idea soon found its way in to Sephora, Ulta and Neiman Marcus and in to stores internationally. I learned it’s ok to be scared with new things, and by working through those feelings, it showed the importance of always taking the first step.

This year saw the completion of #MizandMrs season 3. Through the process, it showed me how to run a successful production company. I was even able to achieve one of my goal - sit in a room and pitch a TV show. It’s stressful enough just pitching it, but to get in front of some of the biggest networks was an achievement alone.

Another dream of ours came true this year with us being able to buy homes for our moms. Not only do we get our moms living close, but our daughters live just miles away from their grandparents and will grow up with two very strong woman that add so much love to their lives.

This year wouldn’t have been possible without @MikeTheMiz. Our relationship isn’t a story that only exists on TV or one that only flourishes when the red light is on. We push and inspire each other to be better partners, parents and professionals. I am so happy to end this year by his side on @WWE TV and for the rest our lives when the cameras aren’t on.

I am full with what 2021 offered, the good and bad, but super excited for 2022 because there is so much more coming for Mike and I.

My lesson for you: Never be scared to take that first step, because as scary as it is, once you find success, you’ll find not taking that step is actually scarier than taking it.

“A hero needs a villain, and the villain needs a hero,” said Jimmy Uso. “For us, it’s the New Day. For them, it’s The Usos. When us four are in the ring, we go so hard that the rest of the show has to step their game up.”

“They are a great tag team and we love them dudes, but we really are trying to one-up each other every single night,” said Jey Uso. “That is real to us.”

- Dominic DeAngelo of WrestleZone has written a piece on what the professional wrestling world can learn from the legacy of John Madden in the wake of his passing.

A combination of charisma, authenticity and passion is what made John Madden the legend that he is to America’s biggest sport and entertainment property. Those traits apply to anything in life, but it’s imperative in getting a smoke and mirrors genre like pro wrestling over. You want to potentially give the sport another “boom?” Follow the blueprint of the man who was synonymous with the word – as unattainable as it may be. Rest in peace.

Kay Lee Ray recently spoke with Metro about how she achieved her dream of becoming a WWE Superstar.

My story is a bit different to most other wrestlers you’ll speak to. I didn’t watch wrestling, it wasn’t something I tuned into every week. It was actually something my husband, Stevie Xavier, got me into back when we were 15. When I started watching wrestling, I started training too. So it all came at once for me.

If you think wrestling is not for you – give it a try, because I would love to go back and watch all those years of wrestling that I missed. I just thought I wouldn’t like it, but now it consumes my life and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I’ve worked really hard to get the life I have, but I’ve worked hard in a job that I love so that makes it all worth it.
