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.

    A farting gimmick, a tripping gimmick…might as well give the rest of the divas clowns/circus gimmick.

    Maybe Kaitlyn should have a “monster case of PMS” gimmick. Or a gimmick involving Hornswoggle blasting Beth with a firehose when she’s not looking. Maybe Alicia Fox should be forced to dress up like a clown and make balloon animals. OR, and this is a good one- have a running gag where Tamina seems to always slip on banana peels and fall off the stage…
     Mabe WWE should redesign the oh-so-condescending Butterfly Belt so that it’s just a safety helmet with the word “DUH!!” written on it. That way, when we see Natty farting, or Lillian tripping, or Eve being a lovelable skank, or AJ being a co-dependent punching bag to some Benoit-wannabe, or any of these other lame gimmicks, the audience will know what’s up- WWE thinks these chicks arent just eye candy, but retarded, to.
     No wonder nobody in wrestling takes the WWE Divas seriously.

  • Cena’s missing balls

    She never should have come back

    Creative needs to step up their game.  Farting and tripping are not gimmicks.

      A lot of us blame the creative team, but, as some former members of WWE’s creative team have said, any good ideas that creative comes up with are shot down.

      The man with the final say is Vince, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the farting gimmick and tripping idea came directly from VKM. He has come up with a lot worse. This is a guy who wanted to use his own daughter and granddaughter in an incest storyline lol.

        You’re right.  And then he probably yells at creative when his ideas flop.

    If those are gimmicks then maybe Beth Pheonix should wrestle naked lol.

    Oh, a tripping gimmick. What a brilliant idea. Whoever thought of it should be canned. But, I know Vince McMahon or Hunter can’t be fired. 

  • Kaylyn Owens

    Is this all they can come up with now? A tripping gimmick? I remember when things were funny.

    You guys do read the articles. Nowhere does it say, that she has received this gimmick. Just some dude, who said he can see it happening. On that matter, I could see it happening too. So I get the upset remarks about WWE creative, but in this case they have not gone through with it…..yet.
