Lilian Garcia On Tripping Over Pyro Cannons In WWE, Company Rules, The Secret To Longevity In WWE

Former WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia recently spoke with the Naluda website. The full interview is at this link and below are highlights:

Any funny/scary experience that you had in your WWE career?
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!!

What part of your job did you find the most challenging?
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!

What is the secret for a long and very successful career like yours?
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!!
