Marc Mero Discusses Finding Out His Wife Was Cheating On Him With Brock Lesnar
By Tom Sanders
Imagine being a professional tough-guy and finding out your wife was cheating on you with the one person whose ass you couldn't kick.
That's what happened to former WWE and WCW performer Marc Mero, who recently appeared on The Steve Austin show for a wide-ranging conversation about his life and career. Amongst other things, Mero talked about his former wife Sable's return to WWE in 2003 and the moment he found out she was cheating on him with none other than Brock Lesnar.
Mero revealed that prior to her return to the Smackdown roster in 2003, Sable had secretly contacted Vince McMahon about coming back to the company without consulting him first.
"I'll never forget this" Mero said while prefacing the incident, "She calls me up and she says, 'hey Marc, what do you think if I go back to wrestling? And, Steve, with God as my witness, I was dumbstruck. 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, and she got Sable back.
"And now I'm home watching the kid, taking her to school, and doing all the stuff a dad does, and [Sable]'s on the road. And every night we have this thing where we'd say 'goodnight' and my daughter and I would say 'goodnight' to her and stuff. And I remember that the phone calls would start to get less and less. She was tired and she just wasn't around as much. And, Steve, I was thinking, 'something's going on, man. This ain't right.' We were really close too and then our marriage just started tanking. After that Playboy thing, it just started to go downhill.
Mero says that he started to suspect something suspicious was going on after phonecalls from his wife started to become less frequent, and started listening to her voicemails to try and get to the bottom of it.
It eventually turned out she was cheating on him with none other than eight-time world champ and UFC legend Brock Lesnar.

"I remember thinking, 'something's going on. She [has] got to be seeing someone.' So I remember, she didn't answer the phone one night, so I really cut this promo on her cell phone and I was like, 'how could you do this, not answer your phone? We had an agreement that we talk at night.'
"I hung up the phone and I thought, 'what a jackass I am. Why would I do that? She's out there trying to earn a living. She's out there doing something she loves.
"So I think I called back her phone. I knew her password because we were that close. We knew each other's passwords and stuff. So I thought, 'let me delete this before she hears it, right?' So I called back her number and punched in her code. It says, 'you have two unheard messages.' And okay, I have to listen to the first one to get to mine and it was another wrestler talking about them two.
"And I was like, 'oh my God,' Steve, I'll tell you, we've all been in this position before. My heart was broken. You can't sleep, you can't eat, you're sweating.
"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! Steve, this gives forgiveness a whole new meaning! Our marriage was over. We ended up getting divorced, but God bless them! They got married. They have kids." Mero added, "they live a happy life and kudos, man!"
Elsewhere in the interview Mero also admitted that he once lost over $1 million in day-trading, but that he's since managed to get his life back on track and is now enjoying a new career as a motivational speaker.
