One of the longtime voices of WWE is leaving for a heartbreaking reason


Some extremely sad news was announced on Monday, as longtime WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia announced she would be leaving the company to be with her father as he battles cancer.

The first part of that post:

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.

Garcia has been with WWE in two separate stints starting in 1999, accumulating over 15 years with the wrestling promotion. During that time, she has been one of WWE's lead ring announcers, helping call the company's weekly programming in addition to its major events.

Garcia did not say that this was the end of her WWE career, but it is clear that her father's health and well-being is more important that her traveling every week.

Prayers and best wishes to Garcia, her father, and their family as they try to deal with this tough situation.
