Sable left the WWE on very bad terms in June 1999. She quit the company at the height of her popularity and filed a $110 million lawsuit against them, citing sexual harassment. The two parties settled out of court in August, but Sable's temerity landed her a spot on the WWE blacklist. She kept busy for four years, taking gigs in the entertainment industry, but apparently missed the live audience interaction and, unlike most professional wrestlers, actually enjoyed life on the road. Well, either that or she realised she wasn't going to become a Hollywood superstar by performing extended cameos in dross like Corky Romano and missed the WWE paycheck. Either way, the air was cleared and WWE wanted Sable back in April 2003. She was essentially brought back to compete in bikini and lingerie contests and pose for Playboy, as well as acting as the on-screen plaything of Vince McMahon (which must have been payback for the 1999 lawsuits). Her delivery was awful and, besides walking around in her skimpies, she offered nothing. Sable was released by the company on August 10th, 2004. Her stock had plummeted since her real-life boyfriend Brock Lesnar had quit the company to try out for the NFL. According to reports at the time, Sable only realised she had been released when she read about it on WWE.com.
