One of NXT‘s newest employees is Christy St. Cloud … and former WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia helped get the ball rolling after suggesting company officials give her a shot.
Lilian discussed her former co-host’s hiring on Making Their Way to the Ring this week after it was revealed that talks between the two sides started in February at Raw in Los Angeles.
Garcia explains, “I kinda told somebody there, that was kinda high up, ‘Hey guys, if you’re ever looking for somebody who can actually work for your announce team, this girl is ready. She has been doing some great work for my show and I think she would be awesome here.'”
WWE officials then took a look at Christy’s online hosting reel and gave her a screen test. Before being hired though, she had an official tryout in Florida.
