Former WWE Star Melina Perez Returning To The Ring, Lilian Garcia Talks Working With The Rock (Video)

This is apparently her first wrestling match since dislocating her knee in an indie match in England last March. A few weeks later, she described the injury in the video below and feared it would end her wrestling career.

– Lilian Garcia recently appeared on Renegade Radio with Jay Ferruggia and went into detail about her career in WWE. She discussed her initial struggles with getting along with female wrestlers, being on the receiving of a Samoan Drop, singing the U.S. national anthem two days after the September 11 attacks, being apart of the Attitude Era, and working with The Rock.

“[The Rock] would always make me blush. And so, all of a sudden [WWE’s creative writers were] like, ‘Ah, that’s so cute. Let’s do that, let’s put her in situations where she would totally blush.’ And he would call me out sometimes at ringside, you know, and there I am and I’m just blushing,” Garcia said.

“So it just became fun and he loved working together and vice versa. I’m blessed, I’m blessed that I had that situation with him, for sure.”
