Rena Marlette Mero Lesnar (née Greek on August 8, 1967), better known as Sable, is an American model, actress, and former professional wrestler. She is primarily known for her stints in World Wrestling Entertainment.

Before gaining popularity in the world of professional wrestling, Mero worked as a model for L'Oréal, Pepsi, and Guess?. Along with her second husband Marc Mero, she began working for the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in 1996. As Sable, she was one of the first WWE Divas, and she gained considerable popularity, surpassing that of her husband's.After feuding with Luna Vachon, Sable became the second WWF Women's Champion after the title was reinstated into the company. After becoming a heel and leaving the company, Mero filed a $110 million lawsuit against the company, citing allegations of sexual harassment and unsafe working conditions.

In 2003, she returned to the newly renamed World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) where she was put into a storyline feud with Torrie Wilson, and another storyline as Vince McMahon's mistress. In 2004, she left the company to spend more time with her family.

Outside of wrestling, Mero has been featured on the cover of Playboy three times, once with Torrie Wilson. The March 1999 issue of the magazine with her on the cover was one of the highest selling issues in Playboy history. She has also guest starred on several television series, including Pacific Blue. She also appeared in the film Corky Romano.

[edit] Early life

Born Rena Greek in Jacksonville, Florida, she was active in her youth and was interested in activities such as gymnastics, horseback riding, and softball. After winning her first beauty pageant at 12 years of age, she eventually became a model, working with companies such as L'Oréal, Pepsi, and Guess?.[1]

Greek married Wayne Richardson in 1986, and had a daughter with him named Mariah in 1988. The two remained married until Richardson died in 1991. She met her second husband, professional wrestler and former boxer Marc Mero, who had been performing in World Championship Wrestling as "Johnny B. Badd", in 1993. After marrying Marc in the following year, she broke into the wrestling business through the World Wrestling Federation.

[edit] 1996-1998

Rena Mero made her World Wrestling Federation debut as Sable at WrestleMania XII in March 1996, escorting Hunter Hearst Helmsley to the ring as he took on the returning The Ultimate Warrior.[2][3][4]

Rena's first major angles as Sable involved her then real-life husband, who debuted at WrestleMania XII as "Wildman" Marc Mero. After witnessing Sable being kayfabe mistreated by Helmsley backstage, the "Wildman" attacked Helmsley and took Sable as his manager.[2] She remained Mero's manager until his injury in 1997. Between 1997 and the time he returned from his injury in 1998, Sable became popular on her own.[2] In her next storyline, a returning Marc Mero (now known as "Marvelous" Marc Mero) became jealous, refused to let Sable get any of the spotlight, and mistreated her. The duo entered into a feud with Luna Vachon and The Artist Formerly Known as Goldust, which climaxed in a match at WrestleMania XIV. Sable delivered a superkick to Goldust and executed a powerbomb (known as the "Sable bomb") on Luna. She also delivered a TKO and pinned Luna to finish the match, with the crowd chanting Sable's name in the background.[5] At the following pay-per-view event, Unforgiven 1998, Sable lost to Luna in the promotion's first Evening Gown match after being distracted by Marc Mero.[6]

After Marc's interference at Unforgiven, Sable came to the ring and challenged Marc to a match. Sable then kicked him in the groin and delivered a Sable bomb to get revenge.[2] Sable eventually broke away from "Marvelous" Marc Mero, who debuted Jacqueline as his new manager, resulting in a storyline feud between the two women.[2] The two met in a bikini contest in July at Fully Loaded 1998. Sable, only wearing impressions of hands painted on her exposed breasts, won the contest. However, the next night on RAW, Vince McMahon disqualified Sable from the previous night's contest since she did not actually wear a bikini. The match was then awarded to Jacqueline. In response, Sable gave McMahon the double finger.[7] At SummerSlam 1998, Sable and her mystery partner, federation newcomer Edge, defeated Marc Mero and Jacqueline in a mixed tag team match.[5]

Sable and Jacqueline faced off for the newly reinstated WWF Women's Title on the September 21, 1998 edition of RAW. Jacqueline claimed the title after Marc Mero interfered.[8] However, on November 15, 1998 at Survivor Series, she dropped the title to Sable, who won after powerbombing both Marc and Jacqueline during the match.[5][2] During this time, Rena had a guest appearance on an episode of the USA Network show Pacific Blue.[9][1] Sable then briefly entered a storyline where she was forced to play a subservient role to Vince and Shane McMahon, but the storyline did not progress very far.

Sable holds the record for most diva match wins in 1998, ahead of both Luna Vachon and Jacqueline.[10]

[edit] Heel turn (1999)

In 1999, Sable was kayfabe attacked by a masked woman named Spider Lady, who turned out to be Luna. Sable defeated Luna in a Strap Match at the Royal Rumble after an assist from a planted female Sable fan, who turned out to be WWF newcomer Tori.[5] Tori's debut signified a change in Sable's persona.

After the Royal Rumble, Rena (under her Sable ring name) was featured as the cover girl for the April 1999 issue of Playboy.[9][2] The issue was the hottest selling issue of Playboy in 15 years. Surrounding the release of the issue, the Sable character turned heel by "going Hollywood" and having an inflated ego. Rarely defending her title, Sable continually berated her fan Tori, and she feuded with both Tori and Luna Vachon (who had turned face). She debuted a new catch phrase: "This is for all the women who want to be me and all the men who come to see me" and a dance move called "the grind."[2] The feud with Tori led to a match at WrestleMania XV. During the contest, Nicole Bass debuted as Sable's bodyguard and helped Sable win the match.[11]

Sable went on with Nicole Bass making Bass do all of her dirty work. Sable continued to hold the championship for almost 6 months, but on May 10, 1999, Debra "won" the Women's Championship from Sable in an Evening Gown Match. Normally in an Evening Gown Match, the winner is the woman who forcibly removes her opponent's dress, which Sable did. However, (kayfabe) WWF Commissioner Shawn Michaels ruled that the woman who had lost her dress was the winner, making Debra the new Women's Champion. With this, Sable became the first woman to lose a title without losing it by pinfall or submission.[1]

[edit] Post-WWF career (1999-2001)

In June 1999, Rena Mero quit the WWF and filed a $110 million lawsuit against the company, citing allegations of sexual harassment and unsafe working conditions.[12][3][4] During the course of the lawsuit, Vince McMahon counter-sued Rena over control of the stagename "Sable".[11] Mero reduced the amount she was seeking in damages, and they eventually settled out of court in August 1999.[3] Subsequently, her husband Marc was released from his WWF contract. Rena Mero used her real name for her appearance in the September 1999 issue of Playboy. After her WWF exit, she made an on-camera appearance as an audience member on World Championship Wrestling's WCW Monday Nitro. Her WWF contract's non-compete clause was still legally valid, preventing her from working for WCW -- although she stated that she wanted to.

During this time, Rena made appearances on The Howard Stern Show and Late Night with Conan O'Brien. She also made appearances on television shows such as Relic Hunter and First Wave and in the film Corky Romano as a female bouncer. She released her autobiography, entitled Undefeated in August 2000.[1] She also released a comic book entitled The 10th Muse starring herself as a superhero.[13]

On November 13 and November 14, 2001, she appeared as the on-camera "CEO" of the newly formed XWF, but these would be her only appearances with the company.[5] In 2003, she announced that she and Marc Mero were getting divorced.[1] Despite this, she continues to use his surname publicly and professionally.

[edit] Return to WWE (2003-2004)

Rena returned to the World Wrestling Federation (now known as World Wrestling Entertainment) on the April 3, 2003 episode of SmackDown!, reprising her role as Sable. Sable continued as a heel and spent several months in a storyline with new Playboy covergirl Torrie Wilson. Sable would follow Torrie down to her matches, talk with her backstage, and on one occasion she left Torrie in a tag match alone to fend for herself. Sable eventually challenged Torrie Wilson to a showdown bikini contest at Judgment Day 2003. After Sable got the bigger applause, Torrie removed another layer of clothing, and Special Guest Referee Tazz declared Torrie the winner. After the match, Torrie went up to Sable and kissed her before exiting the ring. Sable had a brief feud with the guest judge Tazz, dumping water on him on the following edition of SmackDown!, as a means of gaining revenge for declaring Wilson the winner.

Sable then feuded with Stephanie McMahon in a storyline where she was Vince McMahon's mistress.[3] Vince appointed Sable as Stephanie McMahon's personal assistant against Stephanie's will, sparking the feud between the duo. During the feud, they competed in several catfights, a food fight, a parking lot brawl, and a match where Sable bashed a clipboard over Stephanie's head. At Vengeance 2003, Sable defeated Stephanie after interference by her new ally, A-Train. At SummerSlam, Sable accompanied A-Train in his match against The Undertaker, which he lost. After the match, The Undertaker held Sable so that Stephanie could use a Spear attack on her. After Summerslam, Mr. McMahon and Sable focused on getting rid of Stephanie for good, so Vince made an "I Quit" match at No Mercy 2003. In the match, Sable slapped Stephanie and was attacked by Linda McMahon. She also handed Vince the lead pipe that he used to choke Stephanie out for the win.[5] During the contest, she was notably "heckled" by play-by-play commentator Michael Cole.

Sable briefly became a face again when she appeared on the cover of Playboy magazine for the third time in her career. On the cover, she appeared with fellow diva Torrie Wilson, making them the first WWE Divas to pose in Playboy together. Surrounding the release of the cover, the duo feuded with RAW divas Stacy Keibler and Miss Jackie, even though all four women were faces at the time. The two teams squared off at WrestleMania XX in an Interpromotional Tag Team Evening Gown match, but the divas started the match in their underwear, making it more of a lingerie match.[5] Sable and Wilson were victorious.[3] The change was rumored to have occurred because Sable had suffered damage to her breast.[14]

Following WrestleMania XX, Sable quickly turned heel again and engaged in another short feud with Torrie Wilson. The feud culminated in a match at The Great American Bash 2004, which Sable won. Sable's final appearance in WWE would be on SmackDown! when she, Dawn Marie, and Torrie Wilson accompanied Eddie Guerrero to the ring in his lowrider. On August 10, 2004, WWE's official website announced that Rena Mero and WWE had parted ways.[14] Mero claimed that she left the company to spend more time with her family.[4]

[edit] After wrestling

Mero, along with Brock Lesnar, appeared at several New Japan Pro Wrestling shows after her WWE release. After Rena and Marc Mero became officially divorced in 2004, she began dating Lesnar, whom she became engaged to later that year. The engagement was called off in early 2005, but they were engaged again in January 2006. They eventually married.[4] It was reported by Yahoo! Sports that they were no longer married;[15] however, this was proven to be false in a recent interview with Sable in which she confirmed they are still married.[4]
