Carlito Defends The Rock & Talks CM Punk, John Cena

Justin LaBar

Former WWE Superstar Carlito defended The Rock against backstage heat. The former Intercontinental Champion said WWE talents should be happy that The Rock is making WrestleMania 28 a success.

Carlito questioned if any other WWE stars could sell out WrestleMania besides The Rock. Carlito later added the following, throwing in a joke about CM Punk:

"Oh, and I meant wrestlers on today's roster. Of course stone cold with the right angle could sell mania out."

"Punk sell out mania? He cant even get backstage at madison square garden! Oh snap!….that was just a joke b%*es!"

"The problem with john cena is that he has carried the company on his back for years and now people are sick of him."

A fan tweeted to Carlito that he could sell out WrestleMania. Carlito said he could, only if it was held in a bingo hall.
