In 3 incredible years Sable (Rena Mero) went from a valet for her husband Mark Mero to superstardom and eventually left the WWF in a bitter lawsuit. She won two 1997 Slammy Awards, one for "Dressed To Kill" and the other for "Miss Slammy". Her daring bathing suit (you could barely call it that) definitely had much to do with her winning the "Miss Slammy" award.
Not accepting her role as an arm piece for Mark, she developed into a fairly decent wrestler herself, more than once kicking his butt, along with participating in one of the best long running feuds between herself, Luna and Jackie (For details see 98 Update page.) Finally in November of 1998 Sable achieved the crowning glory and became the WWF Women's Champion after beating Jackie for the newly reinstated title.
While holding on to the title for 6 months Sable began to make many public appearances and starred in the USA program Pacific Blue as well as posing for a Playboy centerfold in 1999. During this time numerous rumors were appearing on the net and in the print media about how she was becoming a problem for the WWF. This finally culminated in a $110 million law suit filed by Sable citing that the WWF was condoning sexual harassment and unsafe working conditions. Although the details of the settlement were never released it is known that Rena was no longer able to use the name Sable and that she could not participate in professional wrestling for 3 years.
Several months later Playboy was going to issue a 'special edition' magazine featuring only Sable with the Sable name on the cover at which point the WWF filed a law suit against Playboy. In October of 1999 the magazine was released using Rena Mero's name instead. Rena is working on several movie and TV deals with her first movie to come out sometime in 2000.
