Lilian Garcia Explains Her Tripping Incident At This Week’s SmackDown Taping

SmackDown ring announcer Lilian Garcia has had a little trouble keeping her balance 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 stumbled to her knees while making her way ringside. WWE immediately released footage of her mishap, which features a soundtrack of Michael Cole and Booker T providing the “play-by-play.” In an exclusive interview, Garcia addressed her recent off-kilter moments.

“Well you know, we’re in London and they say London Bridge is falling down (laughs), actually it was me who was falling down!” she says of her ‘trip’ overseas.

“I walked in and I was looking up at the crowd and I didn’t see that they had the pyro tubes right down in the bottom and I just went right over it and tripped and fell,” Garcia explains. She then points to her bruised knee, adding, “If this is the worst thing that happens to me, I’m okay.”

Garcia suffered similar misfortune at the March 13 SmackDown taping as her shoe broke while making her ring entrance. The SmackDown Diva is asked what she plans to do to avoid similar mishaps in the future.

“I think I need to top it, is what I need to do. Everytime it gets better and better, cause that definitely topped the whole shoe breaking incident,” she says. “What can I say, I like to make big entrances.”

Video of the incident and her reaction is available here.

  • Dave

    And yet despite all her botches, she still connects with the crowd. Surely that’s what matters.

  • Little Jimmy

    Knowing WWE they will have her ride a horse to the ring and have her read a script when she does her announcing.

  • grizz

    Is WWE relly paying the moron for what she does?

  • chronoxiong

    Is this her new gimmick? Or has she really lost it since returning and being put on the “B” show?

  • Wellsy

    I wonder if they’ll release footage of Brodus Clay telling Newcastle to make some noise when we were in Sheffield!? That went down well tonight with the locals!

  • Pissed Off Fan =(

    I dont get it? WWE always makes fun of her for EVERYTHING! She even messes up the wrestlers names, she is called a horse, and always falls. I dont get why WWE keeps her around?

  • diddy
