Court Bauer noted on the latest edition of MLW Radio that longtime WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia was quietly released from WWE last week.
While the report has yet to be confirmed, an additional report has surfaced on Reddit via WrestleZone.com reporter Mike Killam, who claims Garcia was not released, but WWE will not be renewing her contract when it expires.
“I talked to a few people who are saying WWE is letting her contract expire. She wasn’t fired last week,” Killam said. “So when she shows up on RAW next week (IF she shows up) don’t everyone be all like “how about those Lillian rumors!?” It’s coming. She just might be on TV until the contract expires.”
As far as when Garcia’s contract expires, she noted during two interviews last year that her deal expires in 2017. It’s believed that it will be in January of 2017, as she last renewed her WWE deal in January of 2014.
