Published 08/31/2022, 7:30 AM EDT

Brock Lesnar is a man who most people, wrestlers included, fear a lot. His built and achievements over the years in UFC and WWE have granted him a level above the average superstar. Not only does he look like a Beast, his behavior, actions, and moves, all arguably scream Beast Incarnate. But WWE has more than just built Lesnar as a monster. Nowadays, people crack up on the former WWE Champion’s jokes because of his intimidating presence.

Zach Gowen on working with Sable, the wife of Brock Lesnar, in WWE

Zach Gowen appeared on Hannibal TV and when asked about working with Sable. He replied, “Please don’t look it up, that angle with Sable because it has the worst acting you’ve ever seen. I’m not an actor, I’m a professional wrestler, I’m a speaker, I like to be authentic when I speak and share my story. Anyway, it’s really stupid and awkward. Imagine going through high school and then having your entire high school career in the debate club or the basketball team and having all of that on YouTube.

Anyways, to your question, I think with Sable, it was just uncomfortable. Because here’s a woman that I just grew up idolizing. I came of age and Sable was the wrestling woman. For guys, it was Sunny, and it was Sable. But I’m sitting there and I have to remember my lines. There’s producers everywhere, there’s cameramen everywhere, the lights are on me, it’s hot, it’s uncomfortable. It was just weird. It wasn’t as fun as you would think.

Sable was undoubtedly one of the fiercest women on the WWE roster. She had two runs with the company, one in the ’90s and the other in the ’00s. Her popularity took a massive bump when she appeared for Playboy magazine in the ’90s. Here, WWE capitalized on this and made her appearances more often. In the ratings, she was outperforming some of the main event players during the Attitude Era.
