Lilian Garcia Talks Tripping Over Pyro Cannons, Remembering Match Rules & More

Former WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia recently spoke with Naluda about her career in WWE. As noted, Lilian recently parted ways with WWE to be with her sick father. Below are some of the highlights of the interview.

On a funny and/or scary story about her WWE run:

“Yes! Within 2 weeks of each other, during my entrance to the ring, one week my shoe strap broke where I had to take off my shoes and go barefoot to the ring, and the next one in London, I tripped over the pyro cannons that were not supposed to be there. Scary then, but sure is funny now!”

On the most challenging part about her time in WWE:

“RULES!!! When there were big matches, the rules, a page long, would be handed to me that day, sometimes right before the match. I had to memorize every word exactly as they were written, wow….what pressure!! The pressure came from me because I always wanted to do my best and make the match introductions extremely special!”

On the secret to having a long and successful WWE career:

“Be dependable, care about your job, work hard, and above all be grateful for the opportunity! Know that working at WWE is a team effort. The less ego you have, the more you will enjoy the ride. And above all, have fun!!”
