Rena Mero (born August 8th, 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'Oreal, Pepsi and Guess?.

In June 1999, Rena Mero quit the WWF and filed a $110 million lawsuit against the company, with allegations of sexual harassment and unsafe working conditions. During the course of the lawsuit, Vince McMahon counter-sued Rena over the WWF licensing of the name Sable. Mero reduced her settlement figure and eventually settled out of court. Subsequently, her husband Mark was released from his WWF contract. Mero used her real name for her appearance in September 1999's issue of Playboy. After her WWF exit, she made an on-camera appearance as an audience member on World Championship Wrestling's WCW Monday Nitro, but was contractually forbidden from working for WCW, although she stated that she wanted to.
