Various News: Tough Enough Alum Talks Indy Promotion, Lillian Garcia Talks Smackdown Return, Mantaur Returns
– Lillian Garcia’s return to Smackdown tonight, her first since being hit by a car in October, was covered by WWE.com. Garcia commented on her return, saying, “I actually had butterflies in my stomach driving up to the [North Charleston Coliseum in North Charleston, South Carolina]. After 11 years [in WWE], you’d think this would be old hat to me, but it all feels new again.”
She added in regard to the fan support she has received, “It’s been overwhelming in a good way, and our fans definitely helped pull me through it. They were the reason I worked so hard with physical therapists and chiropractors to be able to come back.”
– Tough Enough alumnus Martin Casaus’ UCW-Zero promotion was profiled by SLUG Magazine.
– Mantaur is returning to the ring tonight as part of PWS’ “Fight Mare Before Christmas” show. The show takes place in Metuchen, New Jersey; Mantaur will face Tito Santana (as El Matador) in a Special Attraction Legends Match. [Credit: Rajah]
