Carlito Speaks Out: WWE Release, Unhappiness, Flair, More

Nick Paglino

In his first interview since his release from the WWE on May 21, Carlito joined Arda Ocal and Jimmy Korderas on Right After Wrestling and talked candidly about a variety of topics, including:

– Speaking about his WWE release, how the WWE wanted him to go to rehab and he was resistant

– For the last 3 years of his tenure, wanting to find ways to get released, also being a delicate time where he would lash out at people for no reason

– Many of his issues with losing his passion and unhappiness stemming from working face (feeling he’s a much better heel) and backstage politics, spoken about in detail

– What advice his father, famous pro wrestler Carlos Colon Sr. gave him through this time

– Whose idea it was to have his hair long and to spit the apple in people’s faces

– Does he have passion for pro wrestling again?

– Talking about the infamous Ric Flair promo on RAW, did he feel it was a rib on him?
