Details On Michael Cole’s Crass Joke About Lilian Garcia

Returning to WWE after a more than two-year hiatus, appeared on Friday’s episode of SmackDown as the program’s new ring announcer.

introduced Garcia to the live audience at the start of the broadcast, who was already standing in the ring. As Garcia talked about how great it was to be back, she was interrupted by , who was standing on the announce table. Rhodes said no one cares she is back since no one noticed she had left. Garcia danced with later during the show, which gave commentator the opportunity to air a crass backstage joke.

He cracked, “I wish these two would stop horsing around!”

The reference stems from those in WWE’s “inner circle”—, , television producer Kevin Dunn and the since departed John “Bradshaw” Layfield—often joking that Garcia has a horse-shaped face. The crass joke was passed around backstage years ago and ultimately acknowledged on television by Layfield and Hunter to amuse company employees. Though Garcia has publicly taken the joke in stride, took offense to Hunter demeaning the “Decade Diva” during an episode of Raw last year in which she had filled in for regular ring announcer .

He wrote online after watching on television Triple H tell Garcia she can always return to WWE to “horse around,” “Why does someone like Triple H, one of the most talented, well paid guys in the business, do something so shallow and mean? Why would a multi-millionaire, with millions of fans around the world, feel the need (several times over the years) to say something that is only meant to hurt? I don’t get it. I don’t get why it’s done, I don’t get why it’s condoned, I don’t get what possible satisfaction anyone involved gets from demeaning someone like Lillian Garcia. I just don’t get it.”

The latest reference was likely directed by Triple H, who filled in for McMahon at Tuesday’s SmackDown taping since the WWE CEO was off visiting U.S. Armed Forces serving in Afghanistan and Kyrgyzstan. Cole is the mouthpiece of the program director, as he is fed lines via headset. It was not the only mean-spirited remark on Friday’s show as Cole made light of suffering from Bell’s palsy after said Cole speaks out of both sides of his mouth.

Cole quipped, “Actually, there is nothing wrong with my mouth, unlike J.R.’s.”

    Stuff like this makes my blood boil, these hypocrites actually support the “Be A Star: Anti Bullying Campaign” What a joke. It’s a shame nothing like this will ever be sorted out.

      I was thinking the same thing.  The biggest joke is that the WWE is involved in an anti-bullying campaign.  Pro wrestling, by it’s very nature, is full of bullying.   

      • Jables

        I thought that, too. How can pro wrestling be anti-bullying when the entire sport is hinged on one guy bullying the other and so forth? Wrestling and anti-bullying is like an oxymoron. 

    • SCSAFTW

      i think about that every time cole talks about JR, he makes fun of him in every way, isnt that being a bully, doesnt sound like its being tolerant and respectful to me at all, also i friggin hate cole anyways, i keep waiting for the glass to break and austin to come beat the crap out him

  • andre_assassin

    man, the more I think about it, the more I feel like these dudes are really fucked up in the head. 

    why would you make fun of someone who’s put in so many years of heart and dedication to your company. 

    These guys are just jealous that Lilian wouldn’t let them hit it.

     all of these guys are stage three ugly, so they can’t really make fun of another’s facial appearance

     And I’m pretty sure if it WASNT for their money, no one would even spit in their direction.

    I totally get you guys hating on Triple H and his nose after this; but I think Kevin Dunn being involved is even more hilarious!  The guy looks like a freaking weasel, and he sounds like a complete rat.  Ugly douchebags bashing one of the sexiest women to work for the WWF/WWE – not impressed.

    On a more positive note – Foley is still a complete sweetheart and class act.

    how fucking immature on the part of the wwe. anti-bulling campaign my ass…..
    look at the way how vinnie mac walks? it looks like he has something stuck up his ass while he walks. hhh’s nose is fucking bigger than his head, and cole looks like an orange turd that’s been shat out of a disease yak. so shut the fuck up wwe, you fucking hypocrites.

    Why are people suprised by the way HHH and other high ups can act so childish? If you think about who they are as people it’s not suprising at all. These men were the alpha males in school, the jocks…. the same people who would think it was fun to give a freshmen a swirly, or a wedgie. They are men on the outside but children on the inside..

    Plus the irony is we got news Triple H was features in top 100 ugliest men of 2011…is he taking it out on someone to make himself feel better…maybe?

    Okay, so the way I see it, it’s like this: Vince’s head is on cloud 9, Cole speaks from his anus more than the sides of his mouth, and Johnny Ace simply just has a hard time raising his voice. Lillian is an angel, and any business person poking fun at an employee who was dedicated and devoted to a once incredible product is just pathetic and horseshit. Good news from it all: Vince won’t be Chairman for much longer, Cole will eventually be fired (non-kayfabed) one day, and Johnny Ace will be future endavored. How long will those events take to arrive? time is gonna tell us. Oh and yes, HHH’s nose has plenty of room to be vocal.

    So you expect there to be no bullys in wrestling? That would be awesome, a roster full of John Cena’s, all his haters would be found dead infront of their computers whining about how WWE is terrible… Get over it, what is wrong with any of this.. They tell kids not to wrestle at home but the have wrestling (sometimes). If a company has bullys then it makes sense to show its preformers to tell people too stand up to bullys

  • Dizzylizzy703

    I don’t agree with Bulling but to just blame these guys it’s all of them what about cmpunks insults about about HHH and stephine and has far as his nose yeah he knows its big he actually makes fun of it him self just like everyone else.He also made fun at shawns wandering eye at the Hall of Fame induction. And shawn and triple H have been bashing Vince , Shane for years. Every wrestler has don’t forget stone colds stuff he did.And back stage it dose not made who hates on who during the show. It has been gone on for years from back in the day even with some of the legends. Hell I hate to talk about deceased wrestlers but Iron Sheik Insulted a whole F**king Country.And that’s OK.As for Cole yes I agree he is a jerkoff, but for some reason they still keep him.

    So this is why HHH constantly buries Foley or anything involving him.  A lot of people have known about WWE’s senior bully boy club for a while, they’re all just morons who move very rapidly to detract from a positive thing like Lillian Garcia coming back to the company yet they will leave all the companies problems to stagnate such as creative, talent development and just the general approach the company has gone down in recent years.
     
    Cole’s comment about JR really fucked me off.  I get that he is being a heel but sure that would be the one peice of information you leave off the table when ripping on JR.  This stoopid anti bullying campaign is just making WWE look really transparent.

  • Alforddonald

    they need to do something about coles lines because wwe is pushing this Be a star thing and then cole can say anything he wants about any body, if u ask me i think that is bulling in the biggest way. i rest my case
