• Lilian Garcia Explains Why She Was Forced To Leave WWE

During an interview with Chris Van Vliet, former WWF/E ring announcer Lilian Garcia explained why she was forced to leave WWE in 2016.

Lilian said that her family was told her father only had a few weeks to live:

“That was so hard, and I wasn’t intending to leave the company. At this point, I had put 15 years in but I still was okay with staying. I loved it, but then when [my father] got really sick, he told us he had two weeks to three months to live.

It was kind of like, the decision was made and it was okay because I took care of him. And during that time, he’s like, ‘Lil, I don’t want you to sit here and watch me die. What can you be doing next? I feel bad that you’re not there anymore.’

I was like, ‘Well, I had this idea in 2004 for this little show that I thought would be really cool to talk to the superstars’. And it all started with the females.”
