Rena & Brock, who are still in CA for Raw tonight, took a photo with a fan earlier today:
Rena Marlette Greek was born on August 8, 1967 in Jacksonville, Florida. In 1996 she got signed by the WWE and portrayed the character of "Sable". In only 3 short years she became a huge success earning her the WWE Women's Championship. Her popularity led to Playboy offering her to pose for their magazine which she did twice in 1999 and again in 2004. Rena left the WWE in 1999 and returned to the company in 2003. During that time she filmed movies, modeled and was the on-screen CEO of the XWF. In 2004 Rena retired from the wrestling bizz. Today she is married to WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar and is also a mom of 2 little boys.

All Things Lesnar
"I workout just about everyday and do a lot of cardio. Eating is the most important aspect of looking lean. I eat egg whites and whole wheat bread for breakfast followed by chicken breast, potatoes, rice, fish with fruits and vegetables for lunch & dinner."
Did You Know?
In 2000 Rena was hired to be a one-time assistant coach for the Syracuse Smash lacrosse team to attract people to the sport.
According to a guy who was sitting near the ring at WrestleMania 31 today Rena was ringside for the main event (off-camera), Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns. It’s not confirmed as I’ve not been able to find any photos & I also didn’t see her on TV during the event.
PWInsider.com confirmed earlier that she is in Santa Clara with Brock so it’s possible.
Rena’s husband Brock Lesnar announced on ESPN earlier today that he signed a multi-year contract with WWE on monday. In various interviews he did today he mentioned that it took him a year to make the decision to fully retire from MMA & stay with the pro-wrestling company. In the end he chose WWE because of his family & health.
“The fighter in me wants to continue, but at this stage in my life, it ain’t just about me anymore,” Brock said. “You put your pride to the side. You hug your wife and your kids.”
According to the Wrestling Observer Rena was one of the people who pushed for him to stay with WWE, instead of going back to professional fighting.
UFC & WWE threw crazy sums of money at Brock in their attempt to sign him. UFC apparently was offering him a deal worth 10 times what he originally made in the UFC. Then when Brock called them to inform them he wants to sign with WWE instead, UFC doubled their offer once more. No word out yet how much WWE is paying him.
“Sable” was briefly trending on Twitter during Raw on monday. During a promo Paul Heyman said that the #1 contender for Brock’s WWE championship has to “invade Brock’s home, take his wife & food off his children’s plate”. This naturally led to people talking about Rena/Sable on social media.
The wife-part is about 1:48min into the clip below:
Vice.com recently interviewed WWE seamstress Sandra Gray (Rena thanked Sandra in her speech when winning the Slammy Awards for “Dressed to kill” in 1997) and she told them how she got hired by WWE partly thanks to Rena and Marc Mero:
Gray noted on Twitter a couple of months ago that her favorite outfits to design were those for Sable & that she still has a a picture of Sable’s first Playboy cover in her office.
We uploaded videos & screencaps of the 1997 In Your House: D-Generation X PPV which saw Marc Mero take on Butterbean in a toughman- match. Sable of course was ringside for the match & also interviewed before it.

Marc Mero & Goldust took on the Headbangers at the 1998 No Way Out of Texas PPV. Sable & Luna joined their men at ringside but due to Mero’s jealousy over Sable receiving all the attention of the audience, he sent her away to the back before the match began. But Sable decided she wasn’t going to take orders anymore:
