Hi everyone, first time blogger so just giving an opinion on something which I believe should happen at the Hall of Fame 2013. With Brock Lesnar going to be at Wrestlemania 29 and the company building a main event around him which will be a certain, then surely it would make sense for his real-life wife to be inducted into the Hall of Fame... the ONE and ONLY Sable!
Many argue who the 'first' diva was, Sable or Sunny? Whilst Sunny may have been the original diva in many peoples opinion, Sable really took it to the next level and the women of today's WWE owe her for paving the way for them.
Not having the wrestling ability of The Fabulous Moolah, Trish Stratus or Natalya, Sable still took the wrestling world by storm. She held the womens championship, won 2 Slammy Awards, posed for Playboy on three occasions - one of them being one of the biggest selling issues in history.
Making her debut as a valet for Hunter Hearst Helmsley at Wrestlemania 12, I don't think anyone could have predicted just how big a star she would become, even over taking her then real-life husband Marc Mero in popularity.
With memorable fueds with Mero, Luna and Jacqueline (im not forgetting the fueds with Stephanie McMahon and Torrie Wilson), Sable had the crowds in her hands every time she came through the curtain. Who can forget Fully Loaded with the hand paint bikini? Challenging Marc Mero on Raw, kicking him 'below the belt' and delivering the Sable Bomb? Not one of the Divas of today could get a reaction from a crowd and continue to hold the fans attention like Sable did.
Even turning heel and going 'Hollywood' after her Playboy shoots, she was still THE Diva in WWE. After leaving WWE in 1999, Sable returned in 2003 which no one expected after filing a lawsuit against the company for sexual harrassment. Luckily for us fans she came back and picked up right were she left off and went on to fued with Torrie Wilson and Stephanie McMahon. Whilst these fueds might not be as memorable as her first stint in WWE, she still cemented her place as a true diva, powerful, sexy and one who everyone wanted to see. Sable even went on to pose for Playboy for a third time with Torrie Wilson.
So whilst Trish Stratus and The Fabulous Moolah have had more title reigns than any other divas; Lita, Natalya and Beth Phoenix have great wrestling ability, Sable held her own as a Wildcat Diva who became possibly the biggest Diva of all. Forget the Nitro Girls of WCW in the 90's, the WWE only needed one woman to represent their womens division and that was Sable.
Surely she must go into the WWE Hall of Fame - in my opinion. Would love to hear everyone else's thoughts.
