    In 1994, a young woman walked into a Marietta, Georgia fabric shop looking for someone to make a last-minute costume for her boyfriend. Two years later, that young woman would become Sable, WWE Diva, wrestling fashion icon, and all-around babe. Her boyfriend (now ex-husband) was Johnny B. Badd aka Marc Mero, and he needed something to wear for the Pay-Per-View event he was wrestling in that week in North Carolina.

    The woman in the Marietta fabric shop was Sandra Gray. Although it was the middle of a busy prom season and she had never sewed on spandex before, this woman was begging her, so Gray told Sable to come by her house later and she'd get it done. That chance encounter led Gray to a new career as a seamstress and designer for the WWE, a job she still holds today, over 20 years later.

    When she first began, Gray wasn't familiar with pro wrestling, but her two young sons were.

    "They knew all about who [Johnny B. Badd] was," she remembers. "They were super excited. So I took on this job, never having sewn on spandex before, and I made him a pair of trunks. I didn't know the technique, and I didn't have anyone to ask. I just did the best I could, and I was going to get the chance to see my work on TV. My whole family was excited."

    I love Sandra. She is the best. Her & Naomi + Usos seem to be really close cause she was one of the few invited to their wedding.
