Rena Mero Lesnar (born Rena Greek on August 8, 1967 in Jacksonville, Florida) is an American model, actress, and former professional wrestler. She is primarily known for her stints in World Wrestling Entertainment as the buxom Sable character. As Sable, she was one of the first WWE Divas, gained considerable popularity, and was featured on the cover of Playboy three times.
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?.
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.
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. Tori's debut signified a change in Sable's persona.
Sable went on with Nicole Bass making Bass do all of her dirty work. Sable continued to hold the championship for over five 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.
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. She also released a comic book entitled The 10th Muse starring herself as a superhero. She was signed on to star in the film Doppleganger 224, but the film was cancelled for monetary reasons.
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. In 2003, she announced that she and Marc Mero were getting divorced. Despite this, she continues to use his surname publicly and professionally.
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. The two married in May 2006. It was reported by Yahoo! Sports that they were no longer married; however, they have yet to confirm such a claim.
