— Legendary ring announcer Howard Finkel denied the assumption that he is upset with Lilian Garcia returning to WWE as SmackDown ring announcer.
“Not true; glad she’s back!” he tweeted in response to an angry message regarding his perceived attitude toward her return. “But what is true is that you need to look in the mirror to see who the real bawbag is! BLOCKED!”
The WWE Hall of Famer added in regards to possible “heat” between the two: “Heat? That’s an NBA team that plays in Miami! Happy for Lilian and her WWE return!”
The assumption is based on Finkel appearing annoyed when asked about Garcia’s return during last Monday’s WWE.com live chat. He also agreed with a fan’s remark that he should be brought back as a ring announcer.
