Mero, The Artist Formerly Known As Sable, has been the subject of much
discussion on the Internet over the past few months. While many
people have said many things about her, little on the Net has actually
come from the woman herself. The woman who has graced the pages
of Playboy, WOW, and TV Guide talks to RichInKC about life after wrestling.
Welcome to our little part of the Internet. Thanks for taking the
time to talk to the gang at the Diamond Mine.
I'm happy to be here.
The first thing I would like to talk about is
your first exposure to the wrestling business, which would be meeting
your husband Marc Mero in a bar.
Actually, it wasn't a bar, it was a restaurant in Jacksonville called
Quincys. The story gets told so many times that it gets changed
some. We were at a restaurant and I was with some of my girlfriends.
He came in with Marcus Bagwell and Dallas Page. They always used
to tease each other and it was Marc who was interested in what he saw
in me, so he wrote a little note to me. He had the waitress bring
it over. It said, "Do you like me? Yes or no?" To me,
that was very refreshing. It showed me that he had a great sense
of humor and didn't take himself too seriously. So I wrote, "Maybe"
on it and sent the napkin back, but I made him wait about twenty minutes.
I can imagine what was going through Marc's head during those twenty minutes.
Well, of course they gave him a hard time because they thought I had blown
Had you watched wrestling before then? Were you aware of what Marc
I recognized the three of them but I couldn't place them. I didn't
know exactly where I knew them from. Of course, their physical appearance
made me think it was football or wrestling, but I just couldn't place
I guess it is safe to say that Marc wasn't wearing his Johnny B Badd feather
He wasn't wearing it, but it was definitely close by.
How long have you two been married?
We've been married now for over five years, but we have known each other
Had you traveled with him while he was working with WCW?
Yes I did.
It's kind of a hard life to be on the road together, isn't it?
It wasn't hard for us because we were always together. We're together
seven days a week and twenty-four hours a day again. I think you
have to find that one person that you enjoy spending your time with where
you can be together doing absolutely nothing or doing the most exciting
thing in the world and still be just as happy. It's all about finding
that one person you are that compatible with.
