Lilian Garcia Denies Having An Argument With Justin Roberts
Lilian Garcia denied rumors of an apparent argument with fellow ring announcer Justin Roberts before the live audience at Sunday’s Over the Limit pay-per-view event, saying it’s “news to (her).”
Roberts denied the rumor first Monday afternoon via Twitter, writing, “Hey @liliangarcia supposedly we had an argument last night…u know what they say-if its on the Internet it HAS to be true, right? Good2cu!” Garcia later responded to his tweet, writing, “LOL news 2 me!”
PWInsider.com reports there is a lot of heat on Garcia for her multiple errors on the show. During ring introductions for the participants in the Fatal 4-Way Match for the World Heavyweight Championship, Garcia incorrectly announced Sheamus’ billed weight as 227 pounds, rather than 267 pounds. In another glaring miscue, Garcia announced Hunico as a match participant seconds after Hunico proclaimed Camacho as wrestling. Broadcaster Michael Cole took the opportunity to once again denounce her ring announcing ability, say he wasn’t surprised by the mistake considering the source.
The SmackDown Diva acknowledged her announcing miscues via Twitter, writing “THKS!” to the following fan message: “It’s awesome how u deal w the mishaps. It really shows ur level of professionalism.”
