— This week’s SmackDown marks the first time Lilian Garcia has traveled back to her hometown of Columbia, South Carolina since her return to the ring late last year.
“I was really excited when I found out we were coming here,” Garcia remarked to WWE.com. “We have come closer a few times, but to finally get to do this show here feels really good.”
“My parents are in attendance, as well as friends,” she added. “I’m even going to get to sing the National Anthem right before we go on the air, which is really special for me. It truly is a great honor.”
