When Marc Mero first came to the WWE, he was accompanied by a valet, his then-wife Sable. Though Mero didn’t last long in the WWE, Sable was asked back in 2003 and that was the beginning of the end of their marriage.
Mero was a guest on the Steve Austin Show where he talked a little about that time and how it led to his divorce and Sable ending up with Brock Lesnar.
According to Mero, Sable contacted Vince McMahon about going back to the WWE without even consulting him.
“She calls me up and she says, ‘hey Marc, what do you think if I go back to wrestling?” he recalled.
“I go, ‘are you crazy? First of all, they hate you! Vince would never have you back! Are you crazy?’ She goes, ‘I already talked to him and he said he’ll think about it.’ Are you kidding me? And that’s how it all started. She had to go apologize to some of the big stars of the company at the time and I won’t mention names, but she went and did the right thing. She went back, and she apologized,” said Mero.
It was during this time that the couple grew distant and he eventually began to suspect she was having an affair. He eventually confirmed his suspicions by listening to her voicemails.
“I remember thinking, ‘when I find out who this guy is, I’m going to kick the living tar out of this man!’ And then, I found out it was Brock Lesnar!” said Mero.
Though the end result was he ended up divorced, Mero seems to have gotten over his hurt.
“We ended up getting divorced, but God bless them! They got married. They have kids. They live a happy life and kudos, man!”
