Lilian Garcia Sitting Out Contract?
There are multiple reports floating around that Lilian Garcia is done with WWE and will be sitting out the rest of her contract, which is said to be up soon. She has been out since Payback, and although she Tweeted that this was due to personal reasons, insiders claim she might not be brought back. Former creative member Court Bauer went as far as to claim she was “quietly released” already.
If she does show up on Monday, it’s still believed that she’ll be gone once her contract expires, according to WrestleZone.
Whether any of this has to do with her recent mishaps and arguments at ringside is anyone’s guess.

Austin Never In A WWE Ring Again?
In a recent episode of his podcast Steve Austin suggested his WrestleMania appearance could have been the last time we see him in a WWE ring:
“It was good to go down there [to Dallas, TX for WrestleMania 32]. The situation could have been a little cooler. It was fun to do business with those guys, but the crowd was outstanding. I hope everybody had a good time. I don’t know when the next time I’ll ever hit a WWE ring will ever be again. That might have been the last time. And I wanted to be there in Dallas, TX at [WrestleMania] 32. Minor capacity because I never announced my retirement, but I kind of consider myself retired. So to go out in front of 97,000 or 101,000 people, however many [WWE] said that it was, that’s the city I started my [professional] wrestling career in, wrestling at the world famous Sportatorium, so it was a great time.”
