Carlito made his surprise return during the Men’s Royal Rumble match, which was his first in-ring appearance in WWE since 2010. Carlito also competed on the next night’s episode of Monday Night RAW.
What many people including the WWE commentary team remarked on was Carlito’s physique, stating that he was in the best shape of his entire life.
While speaking on the latest episode of WWE’s The Bump, Carlito talked about his return to the company. Panellist Evan T. Mack also praised Carlito for his ripped physique, asking him how he managed to get into such great shape.
Carlito revealed that his secret was just maintaining a proper diet comprising of chicken breasts, spinach and apples.
“It’s funny to me the way people reacted to how I look. I don’t know if it’s a compliment or if I didn’t look good before. I’m still trying to figure that out. When you get to my age, you have to learn about dieting and the importance of it. You get away with it when you’re younger, but now you have to learn how to eat spinach, that’s one thing; spinach, chicken breasts and apples, too.”
Carlito has yet to sign a contract with WWE, but that might be changing eventually.
