Michael Cole Furthers Backstage Inside Joke on Smackdown?

Lilian GarciaAbout a year and a half ago, WrestleZone posted an exclusive report revealing that Vince McMahon and Triple H had a backstage "inside joke" between the two of them, in which they would refer to ring announcer Lilian Garcia as "horse face."

During the 4/19/10 episode of Monday Night Raw, Triple H reportedly aired the backstage joke when he said the following to Lilian Garcia during a segment with CM Punk: "Even Lilian Garcia. If Lilian wants to come back here for one night to the WWE just to horse around, she can do it."

In what might have been either a coincidence or a furthering of that inside joke, (which a year and a half ago we were told Lilian was unaware of) Michael Cole made reference to Garcia and Hornswoggle horsing around in the ring. For those who missed it, during the Hornswoggle segment on Smackdown last night, Cole said "I wish these two would stop horsing around."
