During a recent edition of MLW Radio, host and former WWE writer Court Bauer, along with Lucha Underground star Konnan, said former Champion Carlito might be returning to WWE.
As noted, WWE has been looking for a top Hispanic star to replace the likes of Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio, and it’s possible Carlito could be brought back to fill that role. Additionally, there are no Hispanic talents currently training at the Performance Center.
Carlito was released from WWE back in 2010, after violating WWE’s Wellness Policy and refusing to go to rehab.
Carlito continues to work for his father Carlos Colon’s WWC promotion in Puerto Rico, and he was last seen on WWE TV in 2014 when he appeared at his father’s induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.
