In a sign that WWE’s longest serving non-Diva could be hanging up her microphone, WWE is looking for a new female ring announcer that can moonlight as a singer. Perhaps they are simply looking to replicate her 10-year success for SmackDown, ECW or Superstars or perhaps Lilian Garcia will be retiring from WWE. Well either that or they’re firing her.
WWE sent out the following breakdown for a new position with the company:
WWE Announcer/Singer / Female / All Ethnicities / 20 – 30
Description: WWE is looking for a young, attractive female to sing the national anthem and be our regular ring announcer every week, for one of our most popular TV shows (WWE is estimated to be seen in 500,000,000 households in 150 countries/30 languages)…
This is a breakout job for any young singer. Please specify on submissions if anyone has appeared on American Idol, making the Band or any show of this comparison.
Rate:depends on talent
So if anyone out there is 20 or over and can sing, this could be your chance! My guess is some wannabe from one of the “Pussycat Dolls Presents…” shows will snag the job.
Lilian has been with the company 10 years this year, she started in 1999 and has been a staple of Monday nights since. Among her highlights include releasing her debut album, a Spanish album called “Quiero Vivir” and then there’s that storyline with Viscera. And that time when Charlie Haas knocked her off the ring apron and she was left in agony on the floor for a good 10 minutes.
On the flipside, Lilian has been botching her announcing of late and rumour has it that Vince is already in a foul mood. Could be that he’s had enough? I hope not.
