WWE legend Carlito was a recent guest on the Wrestling Inc. Daily to provide an update on his career with the company, and what he thought about teaming with Jeff Hardy on the Raw after the Royal Rumble. Highlights from the interview can be found below.
His thoughts on teaming with Jeff Hardy on Monday Night Raw:
“I found out the night before, right before I got on the airplane. They told me, ‘We’re gonna need you on RAW.’ So it’s like, ‘Alright, we’ll see what happens.’ Luckily, they gave me enough time before I left to make arrangements. Tagging with Jeff was like old times. It felt like the same again. I’m used to tagging Jeff. The new thing was working with the new guys, Elias and Ryker, [who] seem like good talented boys. It was good to get in there with the new guys and at the same time have one of my longtime buddies. Jeff and I, we go way back. To have him by my side was just another great experience to add to the Rumble.”
On his possible future with WWE:
“Right now, I don’t know where I sit. There was never a trial or something to be a producer backstage or something. None of that was ever mentioned to me. All we talked about was the Rumble and RAW, and then after that, who knows? But as of now, I’d love to come back. It’s all in the air right now. I have no idea what’s next for me. I’m open to whatever ideas are out there. As long as it’s a good idea, I don’t mind. I know I’m a little long in the tooth now. What’s the saying? I got more years behind me than ahead of me. I like helping out the new talent and stuff. If somebody’s got a good idea, then I’m happy to hear it.”
Wants to be helpful to latino wrestlers:
“Probably just help out the Latino wrestlers and just give them more exposure and just show our culture a little more because there’s huge Latino fan base. I don’t know why promotions haven’t brought me in years ago to be their voice because a lot of these guys probably don’t speak the language. It’s hard to communicate [and] to get yourself over when you can’t speak the language. So I don’t know why anybody hasn’t ever thought of me to be their voice. It’s out there. Those are my ideas mainly to do that at least.”
