WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia was given the day off from her Monday Night Raw duties due to a family issue.
“Sorry I’m not at #Raw tonight. My dad is in the hospital and I am by his side. Pls pray 4 his recovery,” Garcia wrote on her Twitter before Raw went on the air.
Eden Stiles, the wife of WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes, and the ring announcer of Smackdown, covered for Garcia. It was Stiles’ first gig on a live Raw.
