The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is claiming that Ryback recently took a verbal jab at Lilian Garcia on WWE television. While providing color commentary during the Jan. 6 episode of “Monday Night Raw,” Ryback insulted Garcia by referencing a backstage joke about the ring announcer having a “horse face” on national TV.
WWE employees, superstars, and officials alike have been talking about the insult, which to some was found to be funny, while others believed the joke was out of line. While at the commentator’s table during “Old School RAW” on Jan. 6, Ryback apologized to the WWE Universe for his voice being “hoarse.” Ryback then claimed that his voice had gotten that way because he had been hanging around with Garcia.
Garcia has reportedly been mocked for years by certain WWE employees behind-the-scenes. The constant insult has been that Garcia has a horse face, which is what Ryback was making reference to in relating his “hoarse” voice with Garcia’s “horse” face.
