Carlito made a surprising return during the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. It was his first appearance inside a WWE ring in over decade. Carlito was released by WWE back in 2010 and he was largely seen as a Superstar who could not live up to expectations.

Carlito previously revealed that he came back as Carlito didn’t like the way things ended last time. Carlito added that he wanted to bury the hatchet with WWE.

While speaking to Chris Van Vliet in a recent live crowd interview, Carlito talked about his time in WWE. Carlito revealed that when he was paired with Torrie Wilson and Trish Stratus, he felt that his career went downhill.

Yeah, I actually didn’t like any of that. That’s what, I think [when] things started going downhill. Carlito’s the guy that always talked about having all these girls but never got the girl. You know what I mean? And when he gets the girl it’s like, okay, that’s not him. You know what I mean? He’s a guy that brags about getting all these girls and these girls, you talk to them, and he does the worst things imaginable. They can’t stand him. But, I don’t know, they turned me into a ladies man for some reason.”


“No, it was just the opposite [of my character]. Carlito wasn’t a ladies man. [Torrie Wilson and Trish Stratus] are great friends and stuff, but at the same time I’m thinking that ‘This isn’t the best thing for my character’.”

While Carlito didn’t have the best of times in WWE, he is still grateful for working there. However, it is unlikely he’ll be back to the company anytime soon.
