— On how things are going now for him in WWE, he said: “Things aren’t great. It’s a work in progress, so we’ll see how it goes. Carlito’s been sucking for a long time so hopefully 2008 will be a lot better.”
— On whether he was really close to leaving WWE back in December: “I was close. I was almost out the door. I had my release papers in my hand at one point. We talked some things over and now I think we’ve smoothed things out, so we’ll see how things go… Don’t get me wrong, WWE is a great company and Vince McMahon is a great guy.”
— On playing the babyface role: “Carlito in no way is a babyface. That’s where all the trouble started is they made Carlito a babyface, which I was totally against. The character is not a babyface… I’m back in my comfortable surroundings so hopefully it goes well.”
