Two days after the devastating September 11th terrorist attacks, the WWE went back to work, putting on an episode of SmackDown that served as a tribute to those affected by the tragedy. One of the most memorable moments of the night came courtesy of New York resident Lilian Garcia, who performed a tearful rendition of America’s national anthem while the WWE roster stood on the stage and entrance ramp. The event marked the first live sporting event since 9/11, with Lilian delivering the nation’s first post-9/11 anthem.
