** Wrestling/EvaMarie, though not blonde, is also often compared to Sable, since she is also a FauxActionGirl who gets by mostly on Fanservice. Though like Maryse, Eva is also nicer in real life than Sable.

--> "This is for all the women who want to be me, and the men who come to see me!"



* AbortedArc: Her storyline with Tori was abruptly ended after Nicole Bass debuted as her bodyguard. She left WWE not too long afterwards, but Tori never got a real payback on her.



* NotInTheFace: As a reminder that she was, at heart, a ring girl and not a wrestler, Vince [=McMahon=] issued a strict edict telling people (essentially) not to touch the merchandise. The hotheaded Luna [[TalkToTheFist broke this rule]] a few too many times backstage, leading to her dismissal.

* NiceCharacterMeanActor: Many who worked with Sable have said that she had a massive ego, believing herself to be the sole reason that WWF was beating Wrestling/{{WCW}} in the MondayNightWars and was universally despised backstage because of it. The heat was so bad that she had to ''hide her belongings'' from the other wrestlers. Of course that didn't stop [[Wrestling/SeanWaltman X Pac]] from [[ExcrementStatement shitting in her handbag.]] Dawn Marie also recalled a story where Sable out of nowhere called her over to witness her saying to Torrie "my ''Playboy'' [[AlphaBitch sold more copies]] than yours". And then Chyna's issue sold 200,000 more copies then hers, the plot thickens.

[[caption-width-right:345:Sable as the WWE Womens Champion]]

'''Rena Mero-Lesnar''' (born Rena Greek), better known as '''Sable''', is an American model, Wrestling/{{WWE}} valet-turned-Diva, and one of architects of the company's so-called Wrestling/AttitudeEra along with Wrestling/SteveAustin.

She debuted in 1996 as a valet to Wrestling/TripleH and her (largely forgotten) then-husband, [[Characters/WWENewGeneration "Marvelous" Marc Mero]], and had an [[HelloNurse immediate effect]] on the fans. Whereas Mero's career stalled as the result of injury, Sable's star continued to rise in his absence. Within a year she had become hugely prominent, with WWE reviving their women's division and [[SpotlightStealingSquad building it around her]]. However she was not a wrestler herself and so arguably started the trend of [[ScrewTheRulesImBeautiful placing looks over wrestling ability]] in WWE.

Regardless, she is recognized as a mighty ratings weapon in the Attitude Era and the prototypical WWE Diva -- although technically Tammy Lynn "Sunny" Sytch and Terri "Marlena" Runnels were playing the Diva archetype before Sable arrived in WWE, and Terri was the one to first use the word on television, though never really credited for it etc etc. She was a 1x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwf-wm.html WWE Women's Champion]].

* UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents: She's originally from Jacksonville, UsefulNotes/{{Florida}}, though not acknowledged as such on TV, and her Southern accent did show up at times.
* ArchEnemy: Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}}, Wrestling/LunaVachon and Wrestling/TorrieWilson. She apparently rubbed Sunny, [[Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin "Stone Cold" Steve Austin]] and some other people the wrong way in the locker room. In her second run, [[Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon Stephanie [=McMahon=]]]. She tends not to make too many friends.
* AscendedExtra: Like other valets at the time (see: {{Wrestling/Goldust}}'s Marlena, who wordlessly puffed on a cigar), all that was required of Rena Mero was to [[http://41.media.tumblr.com/ea4c67d909d6c13c7aa9225e86842be2/tumblr_nr8weuBHd01r7dh6wo1_500.png smile]] and look enigmatic -- e.g. be "classy", according to the commentators. Her first spoken line of dialogue wasn't in a match, but rather an adbreak for Milton Bradley's ''Karate Fighters'' board game: ''“When it comes to Karate Fighters, Tiger Ninja’s ''my'' Wildman!”''

* BreakoutCharacter: Posed for ''Playboy'' and received numerous TV offers, as well as her own comic book series.
** Sunny was the prototype, but Sable helped win the Monday night war. Like it or not, her segments were consistently some of the highest rated during the Attitude Era. When Sunny was off doing her thing, ''[[Wrestling/WWERaw Raw]]'' was still getting trounced in the ratings by ''[[Wrestling/WCWMondayNitro Nitro]]''. (And in fact, WCW tried [[WeCanRuleTogether wooing Sable over to their camp]] in 1999.)

(And in fact, WCW tried [[WeCanRuleTogether wooing Sable over to their camp]] in 1999.)) She also posed for ''Playboy'' and received numerous TV offers, as well as her own comic book series.



* HatesTheJobLovesTheLimelight: She has no love for wrestling whatsoever. Sable used WWF as a means to try to get famous, and has openly admitted as much.
-->'''[[WebVideo/OSWReview V1]]''': She has zero charisma. ''[[DullSurprise Negative]]'' charisma.\\
'''Jay''': And she's obviously disinterested ''and'' untalented. But she does pull in the crowds.



* InformedAbility: Remember the Rosie O'Donnell impersonator who fought Creator/DonaldTrump on ''Raw''? She has more wrestling ability than Sable.
** Perhaps aware of this, [[Wrestling/JimRoss J.R.]] and [[Wrestling/JerryLawler Lawler]] ''fell over each other'' praising her athleticism, her beauty, her perfection! Wrestling/PaulHeyman couldn't have done a better job putting her over.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Ever seen ''{{Film/Heathers}}''? That was more or less the women's locker room during this period.
** Her ''Playboy'' cover went to her head in storyline and she didn't care that her fan Tori was being attacked by Luna. She just continued to wave and blow kisses to her fans and then turned on Tori for not being able to "get the job done".

* TheSmurfettePrinciple: When Sable debuted there were only two other women in the company, Sunny and Marlena. {{Wrestling/Chyna}} followed in February 1997 and Luna Vachon returned in November, with Jacqueline, Tori, Debra, Ivory and Miss Kitty following.

* SexyPackaging: Sable was, in her time, easily one of the most famous people (at one point, likely ''the'' most famous) on the WWF roster. She made them a lot of money.
