WWE To Give Lilian A Tripping Gimmick?, Encyclopedia Update
WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia has had a little trouble staying on her feet at recent live events, most recently during Tuesday’s SmackDown taping in London, England as she tripped over pyrotechnics equipment and stumbled to her knees while making her way ringside. New York Times Best Selling author Kevin Sullivan, who authored the WWE Encyclopedia, says he wouldn’t be surprised if WWE creative burdened the Decade Diva with a gimmick based on her follies after the organization quickly released footage of her tumble online.
“I don’t know why, but I truly enjoy following Lilian Garcia’s follies on the web. I’m really a good person, but her goofs make me laugh,” he wrote on Twitter after watching a video of her latest miscue. “Some guys are goofy before becoming serious (Angle, Y2J, Double J), while others start serious and turn goofy (Santino, R-Truth, Godfather).
“I wouldn’t be surprised if WWE gave Lilian Garcia a tripping gimmick now.”
Garcia has past history of an accident metamorphosing into a storyline as Charlie Haas incurred the wrath of Viscera after inadvertently knocking her to the ground as she stood on the ring apron during a June 2006 Raw episode.
A second edition of the WWE Encyclopedia is scheduled to be released on September 3, 2012. Sullivan, who is penning the second one, tweeted information on the book’s contents on Wednesday.
“It will have everything the first WWE Encyclopedia had, plus updates, plus new Superstar entries, plus more past Superstars,” he wrote.
