Lawsuit: Sable vs Vince McMahon

In 1999, Sable (Rena Lesnar, then Rena Mero) abruptly left WWE while she was one of the biggest stars in the wrestling business.  She quickly filed a $100 million lawsuit alleging sexual harassment among other things.

Some of the claims were ridiculous, others weren't surprising by wrestling standards, and some were just interesting reading.  The most infamous passage was probably this one:

"...Mrs. Mero bitterly complained about her concerns and the humiliation that she was constantly facing, which was not only interfering with her well-being, but with her safety and state of mind. For example, men would routinely walk into the women's dressing room as if by accident; men would cut holes in the walls to watch the women dressing; extras were hired as WWF regulars to expose their breasts; big nipple contests were engaged in; men regularly bragged about their sexual encounters without regard to the women present; WWF produced catalogues and tee-shirts depicting Mrs. Mero In a degrading fashion offering sexual favors; Mrs. Mero was requested to display affection to women to promote a "lesbian angle"; Mrs. Mero was asked to have her gown ripped off repeatedly (notwithstanding promises to the contrary), and Plaintiff was asked to expose her breasts by 'mistake' on national television during a wrestling contest."

Much of the discussion of the suit online centered around exactly what a "big nipple contest" was and why it was so awful.

The suit was settled two months after it was filed.  The terms were confidential but it's believed Rena didn't get much, if anything.

In a huge surprise, she returned to WWE as part of the Smackdown brand in April 2003.  She quickly became Vince McMahon's on-screen mistress while feuding with his daughter Stephanie. During that feud, Stephanie ripped Sable's top off backstage while fighting next to a limo and her breasts were shown on Smackdown for the whole world to see. So basically, she lost the lawsuit, got no money, and eventually gave in and returned to the company and did whatever they asked.

She left WWE again on better terms in August 2004 to spend more time with her family, which now included boyfriend Brock Lesnar, who had left WWE a few months earlier.  He eventually sued WWE himself, but that's another matter for another day.
