Lilian Garcia Announces Departure From WWE To Care For Sick Father
Lilian Garcia has been one of the voices of the WWE product for over 15 years. But she’s hanging up her microphone in order to put family first.
In a post to Instagram, Garcia announced that she is departing WWE to care for her sick father, who is suffering from cancer. His health has recently taken a turn for the worse, and Garcia wanted to be by his side rather than traveling on the road constantly with WWE.
I’ve been getting a lot of tweets and messages asking where I have been and if I’m coming back to WWE, so I wanted to let you know what has been going on and why I have been silent. I’ve been through so many emotions lately that they literally have kept me up at night. As most of you know, my father has been battling with two different types of cancer. He hasn’t been doing as well as we hoped, THEREFORE, I will not be traveling weekly with WWE any longer. I will be looking to take on work closer to where I live so that I don’t have to be on the road weekly away from him. He truly needs me, and I need this time with him. I ask that you please continue prayers for my father and my family.
It has been a magical 15-year career at WWE, and WWE Universe, I can’t thank you enough for all your love and support! I felt you every step of the way! I also want to thank the amazing WWE Superstars, whom many of them have become my friends! You are an incredible group of people with SO much talent! It has been such an honor to introduce you to the ring and watch your superior athleticism week after week. Thank you to the crew & production staff on the road and in the offices. I’ve seen you work so hard! You really are the glue that keeps it all together!
Lastly, thank you WWE for this incredible ride that I never wanted to get off. I’ve had experiences beyond my imagination. I thank you for not only allowing me to use my voice as an announcer but also sharing it to sing around the world. What an honor! I will cherish the memories forever.
Garcia will be missed, and I hope her father the best in his treatments. I’m sure Lilian will be welcomed back with open arms if she chooses to ever return, so I don’t feel like we’ve seen the last of her. Still, I wish her and her family well.
