WWE are currently enjoying quite the nostalgia kick, with Sting, Chris Jericho, and the Dudley Boyz all competing at the recent Night of Champions PPV. Several ex-superstars have also been linked with a comeback in recent weeks – none more so than Carlito, who reportedly turned down a deal a few days ago, due to the money being offered.
The former Us Champion spent seven years with the company – including a short stint in the developmental system – and left a mark thanks to his naturally heelish persona and nimble in-ring style. His WWE career was criminally cut short when he was released in 2010 for a violation of the Wellness Program, and returned to World Wrestling Council, his father’s Puerto Rico promotion.
Now that a connection between Carlito and the WWE have at least been reestablished, fans could well see the Bad Apple saunter onto Raw or Smackdown in the near future.
