WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia made her return on Smackdown yesterday following several weeks on the sidelines after she was hit by a car in Los Angeles, California.
Garcia was struck by an SUV as she was working out in late October and was admitted to the hospital where the initial reports from WWE suggested that she was stable and expected to be released soon. However the story quickly changed and Garcia was kept in hospital due to her injuries, particularly head, neck, and back trauma.
“I actually had butterflies in my stomach driving up,” the WWE Diva told WWE.com, referring to going to the arena for the tapings. “After 11 years, you’d think this would be old hat to me, but it all feels new again.”
Although it has been over a month that she was struck by the SUV, Garcia still undergoes physical therapy. She thanked the WWE fans for their love and support and said that it’s the reason that she worked hard with physical therapists and chiropractors to be able to come back.
