As seen during last night's SummerSlam pay-per-view broadcast, ring announcer Lilian Garcia made a rather sizable mishap by announcing Randy Orton as the winner and new WWE Champion after Orton had disqualified himself by shoving referee Scott Armstrong during his championship bout with John Cena. This was not the only unfortunate thing to happen to Garcia this weekend as someone stole her cell phone (with all of her contacts) and digital camera during her visit to Venice Beach on Saturday. An upset Garcia wrote the following on her Twitter account late Saturday night: "Not a good day at Venice beach. Jerk stole my phone & camera! Had to buy new phone today & lost ALL my contacts. Bummed!! Stealing sucks!!!" Garcia will be working tonight's Raw in Las Vegas, which may not necessarily be her last date for WWE.
As reported earlier, The Hurricane beat Paul Burchill yesterday afternoon at SummerSlam Axxess. Afterward, Matt Hardy and former WWE wrestler Shannon Moore hit the ring to celebrate with The Hurricane. Howard Finkel then conducted an interview with Hurricane, who said his comeback was worth it to him because he was able to celebrate it with his two best friends. Matt Hardy posted an image of the group posing together in the ring on his Twitter account, which you can see at twitpic.com/f1qv3
