How old is Sable?

Sable is currently 53 years old. She was born on August 8, 1967, which makes her a Leo.

How old is Brock Lesnar?

Brock Lesnar is 43 years old, making the couple ten years apart. 

Sable was a major sex symbol in the 90s.

In 1999, she was featured on the cover of Playboy.  She was a major sex symbol and the top women’s star in the WWF, partly because of the Attitude Era.

Who are Sable's ex-husbands?

Before Brock, she was married to Marc Mero. 

Marc Mero was a boxer and professional wrestler and the catalyst for Sable's professional wrestling career. Marc wasn’t just her husband — he was her professional train. His career began to fall apart, and so did their marriage. Marco and Sable divorced in 2004.

Before Marc Mero, she was married to Wayne Richardson.

Richardson, her first husband, died in 1991, in a drink driving accident. 

Did Sable and Brock Lesnar have an affair?

There were rumors Brock and Sable started their relationship in 2003, a year before her official divorce with Mero.

On an episode of Jim Ross’ podcast, Marc Mero opened up about his divorce from Sable.

“We were still married at the time, but we weren't really seeing....I don't know, it was falling apart.”

He continued, “I remember calling her and her not answering the phone and I got very upset. Here I am, assuming she was seeing another wrestler. I remember thinking 'When i find out who this guy is, I'm gonna be the tar out of him!' Well, when I found out it was Brock Lesnar, it gave forgiveness a new meaning.”

Brock and Rena are the definition of a dynamic duo.

On May 6, 2006, the couple officially tied the knot — which sounds like the name of one of Sable’s spine-breaking wrestling moves.

Sable's kids: She's a proud mother and adores her family.

Brock and Rena have two children together: Turk and Duke. Turk was born in June of 2009, and Duke was born in July of 2010.

She's also the proud step-mother to Brock Jr. and Maya Lynn, Brock’s children from his previous engagement to Nicole Lesnar.

On November 11, 2017, she posted a sweet picture of Brock, Turk, Duke, and Brock Jr. to her Instagram account. "Enjoying the soccer match with my lovely husband @brock.lesnar_," she wrote, "and my beautiful children #soccer #lovemyfamily."

Wayne Richardson was the father of her first daughter, Mariah. 

Sable sued WWE for $110 million dollars for foul work practices and sexual harassment.

Rena claimed that she “was being ordered to do things against her will, such as removing her top for a particular storyline.”

After a couple of months of the lawsuit, she settled.

In 2003, she returned to WWE in an episode of Smackdown, where her bond with Torrie Wilson, one of the top wrestlers in the company, was formed.
