Lilian Garcia Appears On The Steve Austin Show Podcast

Lilian Garcia Disputes Claim Made By WWE Employee About Why She Left

Former veteran WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia recently appeared as a guest on WWE Hall Of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s weekly Steve Austin Show podcast for an in-depth interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.

On wanting to end her WWE career as a ring announcer for RAW: “I’ll never forget too, I was on SmackDown and I remember saying, ‘man,’ because I was on RAW for 10 years. I left for two years. I came back. They brought me back and I was announcing for SmackDown, which I love SmackDown. Most of the time, I did backstage interviews, but I really was like, ‘yeah, I would really love to get back on RAW.’ Like, ‘it [has] been my home for 10 years. I would love to end my [WWE] career there.’ And I put it in my vision, like, ‘I don’t know how, but I was so grateful I was back on RAW and that’s where I’m going to finish my career.’ And sure enough, it was months later and all-of-a-sudden they called me and I was back on RAW and I was announcing on RAW again. Like, how does this happen?”

On a certain WWE employee who claimed she left the company to pursue a singing career: “Something that very much upset me was… it’s a certain book that was written by somebody that used to work for the company. I don’t even want to mention their name. But they mentioned how they felt that I left [WWE] after 10 years, so I could go and have my singing career and that I didn’t care about the [pro wrestling] business as much as they cared about the business. Yeah. And I was like, ‘man, and I helped this person so much,’ by the way, that I was like, shocked. I love the business. I would not have stayed in the business for 15 years if I didn’t love the business. I love this business. For anybody to tell me otherwise, no way.”
