In 2019, WWF Veteran Marc Mero appeared on the Steve Austin Show podcast and talked about his ex-wife Sable working with Playboy, why they got divorced & more.
Below are the highlights:
On Sable’s reaction to Playboy wanting to work with her:
“When Playboy came to, Vince said to me, he said ‘Hey Marc, Playboy has a really strong offer to have your wife in their magazine.’ I said, ‘No, no, could never do that, I’m a Christian, I couldn’t do that, Vince.’
And so, I remember, I don’t know why she wasn’t with me at the time, she was doing some other TV show or something, I can’t remember. When we came home together, I said, ‘You’re not going to believe this, I got to tell you something, Vince said to me that Playboy would like you to do their magazine.’
She goes, ‘Really?’ I go, ‘Yeah.’ And Steve, as God as my witness, I don’t remember who said it because I’m not throwing her under the bus, it might have even been me that said it, but I just remember, we were sitting at our table, and I remember how stupid I am, and this is why I can be so honest with me now.
I look back at my life, what a jabroni, if you look up jabroni there is my picture right next to it, I said or she said, I can’t remember, was, ‘Let’s just do it, God will forgive us.’ OK? So they are not only offering her this huge sum of money, but they’re offering her quarter an issue over their normal sale.
So let’s say Playboy sold half a million copies a month for their magazine, and if she did a million copies over that, that’s another $250,000. It becomes the fastest selling Playboy in history.
So what do they do? They call me back, because now we’re hooked in with Hugh Hefner, we’re going to the Playboy parties, at the Mansion, the Halloween Extravaganza, Midsummer Night’s Dream, we’re watching movies at Hef’s house, it’s like we’re part of their team, so he calls me, he doesn’t call WWF, he calls me, he goes, ‘We want to do it again.’

So I say, ‘Well, I want seven figures plus a quarter an issue over normal sales.’ They give it to us. Steve, I don’t know if you know this or not, but she did that four times, she did that four times. So now, she’s really raking it in with that.”
