One of the fun things about the wrestling business is that it gives people
the opportunity to go places and see things they ordinarily wouldn't take
the time to do. What things have you done in your travels that stand
out in your mind? What were some of your favorite places to go?
being on the road in the wrestling industry,
you don't get a lot of time to enjoy the places that you do visit.
I would have to say that South Africa was probably by far one of my favorite
countries to visit. We took safaris and went to lost cities.
We actually had some time off there so we could enjoy it. There
are so many fabulous places we've seen. Just having the opportunity
to be able to travel around the world has been something I would ordinarily
not have had the opportunity to do. It has been a blessing in many
RichInKC: What was the time in your career that you realized you were
becoming popular? I talk to a lot of people and many of them have
one moment that stands out as when they began to realize just how many
people enjoy their work.
Mero: It first happened to me when I won my Slammy Awards for "Miss Slammy"
and "Dressed To Kill". After that, the popularity of Sable just
kind of skyrocketed. It catapulted her to a different level of her
career. I have to say it's all because of the fans. They make
you who you are and they determine how popular you are going to become.
Have you had the opportunity to interact with your fans, over the web
or at autograph signings and appearances?
Mero: Oh, absolutely. I still do quite a few personal appearances
and that's one of the best parts of my job. It gives me the opportunity
to meet the fans, or my friends, one and one. I get to know who
they are, and they give me a lot of feedback about what they think about
what is going on and they are very interested in what I am doing.
On my website, we have chats and I also answer mail.
This sounds like a good cue for a plug. What's your website address?
Mero:. It's http://www.renamero.com
I understand you have several projects in the works.
Yes, I do! I just signed my first major motion picture and we will
start filming that in January. I've very excited about this movie.
It will be fantastic. It's an action/thriller with romantic overtones.
It's just going to be a very suspenseful movie with a lot of drama and
action. The title of the movie is Doppelganger 224. I am very
excited about that. I'm also working on a few different projects
for television series. I have several options I am looking at right
now and I am just trying to figure out which one would be best.
I'm working with my friend Gene Simmons from Kiss on a television project
and a motion picture that he would like me to work with him on.
The Red Sonja, the Heavy Metal, and a few other television projects are
open to me now. I am doing quite a few product endorsements, one
of which is the Ab Pad. I am also working on a nutritional supplements
line. I'm working on a fragrance and a skin care line, as well.
RichInKC: If you thought you were busy before, it sounds like you have
a lot going on right now.
Mero:. Oh, I am extremely busy now, but now the difference is I am doing
what I enjoy doing. These are all my own projects and we have opened
up our own production company called Rena Productions. My husband
is my business manager now and he is totally handling my career and making
things happen for me. With him, my agent, and my publicist things
are really going extremely well.
