Major Heat On Lilian Garcia For Screwups At Over The Limit

Posted by Michael Bluth May 21, 2012 5 Comments

From ring announcing gaffes to shoe related mishaps, Lilian Garcia’s second go-round with WWE has been rough at times. The veteran Diva had another bad night Sunday at Over the Limit as she mishandled no less than three ring introductions and was involved in a heated argument with a co-worker in front of fans.

During ring introductions for the participants in the Fatal 4-Way Match for the World Heavyweight Championship, Garcia incorrectly announced Sheamus’ billed weight as 227 pounds, rather than 267 pounds. In another glaring miscue, Garcia announced Hunico as a match participant seconds after Hunico proclaimed Camacho as wrestling. Broadcaster Michael Cole took the opportunity to once again denounce her ring announcing ability, say he wasn’t surprised by the mistake considering the source. Garcia also drew the ire of fellow ring announcer Justin Roberts for mishandling ring introductions for the Intercontinental Championship Match between Cody Rhodes and Christian. Wrestling Observer editor Dave Meltzer explains in today’s edition of Observer Radio:

“Something happened between Lilian Garcia and Justin Roberts where Lilian stormed off—live crowd could see it. And it had something to do with her botching something. It was the ring announcement of the Cody Rhodes/Christian match and they were arguing and she stormed off, I know that.”

Garcia acknowledged her announcing slip-ups during a recent interview with The Sam Roberts Show. She stated that while she receives feedback regarding her gaffes from peers, they don’t make fun of her.

    It’s a work. Not sure why, but it’s a work of some sort.

    Well her singing career went no where. She can’t help but slip and fall on the entrance ramp, and now she can’t even get her facts straight when announcing. I think it’s time for her to retire from the entertainment business or find another career.

    Well her music career went no where. She can’t help but slip and fall as she walks onto the entrance ramp. Now she’s screwing up within the wrestler’s information, yeah i think its time for her to retire from the entertainment business or find another career.

    WWE should hire Scott Steiner as their ring announcer. The time he announced Impact was hilarious!

  • ExtremeWrestlingFan

    Its funny how Michael Cole would denounce everybody around him, when he sucks on commentary. Cole is an idiot.
