Rena Mero (born August 8, 1967) is an American model, actress, and 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, gaining considerable popularity and gracing the cover of Playboy several 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’OrĂ©al, Pepsi, and Guess?.

Greek married Wayne Richardson in 1987, 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.

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.

Rena's first major storylines as Sable involved her then real-life husband, who debuted at WrestleMania XII as "Wildman" Marc Mero. After witnessing Sable being mistreated by Helmsley backstage, the "Wildman" attacked Helmsley and took Sable as his manager. 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. 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 would enter 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 roaring and chanting Sable's name in the background. 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.

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 delievered a Sablebomb to get revenge. Sable eventually broke away from "Marvelous" Marc Mero, who debuted Jacqueline as his new manager, resulting in a feud between the two women. The two met in a bikini contest in July at WWF Fully Loaded 1998. Sable, only wearing impressions of her husband's hands painted on her exposed breasts, won the contest easily. 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. At SummerSlam 1998, Sable and her mystery partner, federation newcomer Edge, defeated Marc Mero and Jacqueline in a mixed gender tag team match.
