WWE has a few controversial Superstars in the company’s history, and they aren’t allowed to mention a few of them for different reasons. It seems that Brock Lesnar’s wife, Sable, is among that list of people who cannot be mentioned.
During the latest episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown, Edge took the opportunity to address the fans at Madison Square Garden, reflecting on his remarkable 25-year journey with the company. In a surprising moment, he referenced his debut as Sable’s mystery partner in 1998, highlighting his humble beginnings.
The mention of Sable in Edge’s promo was unexpected, as her name has not been referenced in a WWE show for decades. There is a reason why her name hasn’t been spoken too.
Despite being one of the biggest names from the Attitude Era, Sable has not returned for any reunion shows and has not been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. According to a former WWE star, there seems to be a ban on mentioning Sable’s name.
During a virtual signing, Torrie Wilson revealed that she was specifically instructed not to mention Sable during her Hall of Fame speech. Wilson humorously remarked that one would have to go to Timbuktu in Minnesota to find her, as she has been completely distanced from professional wrestling. Wilson added that mentioning Sable’s name was prohibited, even though they had shared storylines together on SmackDown in 2003 and appeared on the cover of Playboy.
Sable’s tenure with the company ended in 2004, and since then, she has chosen to live private life alongside her husband, Brock Lesnar. Sable’s ex-husband, Marc Mero, seems to have come to terms with how things turned out now, but there was a very tricky time in WWE for them.
Sable is not in the WWE Hall of Fame either, and it’s not likely she will be inducted. Only time will tell if things ever change, but it appears that Edge mentioning Sable might be a sign that they are softening on the idea.
Who belongs in the WWE Hall of Fame more than Sable? Sound off in the comments!
