• Former WWF Writer Reveals His Experience Of Working With Sable
Old School WWF/WCW Writer Vince Russo was interviewed on the ‘That 90s Wrestling’ podcast, where he was asked about working with Sable in the World Wrestling Federation during the Attitude Era.
Marc Mero’s then wife Sable won the WWF Women’s Championship on November 15, 1998 and held it until May 10, 1999.
Here’s what Russo had to say:
“I wasn’t there towards the end of her tenure but I can tell you that every night I worked with Marc & Sable, no problem whatsoever.
Zero, zero, zero.
I was the one who called Sable with the idea for putting the Women’s Title on her.
Bro, she had never been in a wrestling ring.
She was like, ‘Let me put Marc on the phone.’ So Marc got on the phone and I said, ‘Marc, Sable would be huge, can you get her in that ring?’ and she got in that ring and she learned how to work and take bumps.
Sable was a lot tougher than people might have imagined. She was not prissy and she would fight.
I have all the respect in the world for her. I loved working with her. I never had one single issue with her being a diva or anything like that.
Like I said, when I left, I don’t know what happened but I never had a problem with her.”
