A Star Shattered: Chapter Seventeen
When she first started on the road for the WWF there were only two other women traveling and they are wrestlers. Alundra Blayze (Madusa) and Bull Nakano didn’t compete with her for hosting spots. She enjoyed being the only woman that was a non-wrestler because she’s an admitted attention whore.
In 1996, Terri Runnels, the wife of Goldust, came into the company and Tammy knew who she was since she had worked previously in WCW as Alexandria York. Terri was a sweet Southern girl and they got along very well. They never had a problem.
Then, one day after returning from catering, they noticed that someones gear was in their locker room. They were both confused considering they were the only two women on the crew. The mystery woman returned and didn’t introduce herself and instead just sat down at their table. That was a cardinal sin in professional wrestling. They found out that she was Marc Mero’s wife, Rena, and that she’d be going by Sable as his new valet.
Tammy blurted out, “Like the car?” and instead it was more like the dark or night. Regardless, Tammy didn’t like her at all. She insists that she wasn’t jealous of Sable and that nobody liked her in the locker room. Tammy and Sable had two different characters as Sunny was the kind of girl you’d bring home to mom and dad while Sable’s character was someone you’d bring to a hotel with an hourly rate attached.
The main reason she didn’t like Sable was because one time she asked what happened to Sable’s eight-year old daughters birth father. Sable replied that he had died in a car accident when she was just a baby. Apparently, Sable didn’t mind that he died and believed it was the best thing to happen to her because otherwise she wouldn’t have met Marc. That cemented for her that she wouldn’t like Sable, while Terri was able to keep the peace with her.
Shortly afterward, Luna Vachon was brought in and Tammy quickly became friends with her and nicknamed her “Mama Luna”. Then, one night Luna viciously attacked Tammy backstage sending her across the room and pummeling her with right hands until officials came over to break them apart. Tammy had no idea what was going on.
A few minutes later, Luna came back over and was an emotional wreck apologizing to Tammy for what just happened. Apparently, while she was sobbing, Luna had mentioned Sable was the culprit. From that moment forward, nobody liked Sable. Sable was a compulsive liar and stated that she was the first person to get offered a Playboy spread. Tammy reminds us that she was offered a spread a full year before Sable started with the company.
Tammy notes that Sable always said she was three years older than Tammy, but that’s incorrect. She’s actually six years older than her. Sable hasn’t aged very well either and is now a grandmother. Once Tammy left the WWF, Sable made more enemies and eventually had several wrestlers poop in her gear bag. Karma definitely is a bitch.
