- Legendary boxing ring announcer Michael Buffer believes that Lilian Garcia is the best wrestling ring announcer of all-time.
Buffer, who is best known for his catchphrase, "Let's get ready to rumble," responded on Twitter to a fan's opinion on the top 10 wrestling ring announcers of all-time by saying that Garcia is the "best ever."
All great choices there..no doubt about it though with Lilian Garcia at the top and I bet everyone named will agree she's the BEST EVER pro wrestling ring announcer (and she always blew the house up singing the National Anthem)! #LetsGetReadyToRumble ® https://t.co/ILRKO6tGmR— Michael Buffer (@Michael_Buffer) July 17, 2018
Garcia was flattered by Buffer's remarks and responded with the following.
They crossed paths in January 2008 at the Royal Rumble as Buffer announced the rules of the Royal Rumble Match whereas Garcia handled ring announcements for the undercard.
Truly honored to be at the top of this list! I valued my time @WWE more than you know!! To me missing from this list is @howardfinkel & @TonyChimelWWE who were amazing announcers & truly helped me along the way! They gave me incredible guidance! #Grateful https://t.co/JZNvYj3B4D— Lilian Garcia (@LilianGarcia) July 17, 2018
