SmackDown ring announcer Lilian Garcia has had a little trouble staying on her feet at recent WWE shows, most recently during Tuesday’s SmackDown taping at The O2 Arena in London, England.
On this occasion, Garcia tripped over pyrotechnics equipment and fell to her knees while making her way to the ring for the taping. WWE released footage of her misfortune within hours, which features audio of commentator Michael Cole howling in laughter.
Garcia is finding humor in her latest accident. She posted a link to the video on Twitter and wrote, “London bridge is falling down…no, actually I’m falling down! Tripped & fell in my entrance 2night on #SmackDown! LOL.”
As WWE says, Garcia can’t seem to catch a break: it is her third embarrassing incident in recent weeks. Similarly to Tuesday’s mishap, Garcia suffered a wardrobe malfunction at the March 14 SmackDown taping as her shoe broke while making her ring entrance. As well, WWE released footage of Garcia’s blunder with Cole crowing hysterically. Garcia was ridiculed again at the following week’s SmackDown taping as John Cena denounced her ring announcing ability after having erroneously introduced Zack Ryder as “Jack Swagger.”
