Carlito Unhappy With Current Push, Had Release Papers In Hand

Ryan Clark

Carlito appeared on the Between the Ropes radio show on Thursday night and he had some interesting things to say.

— On how things are going now for him in WWE, he said: “Things aren’t great. It’s a work in progress, so we’ll see how it goes. Carlito’s been sucking for a long time so hopefully 2008 will be a lot better.”

— On whether he was really close to leaving WWE back in December: “I was close. I was almost out the door. I had my release papers in my hand at one point. We talked some things over and now I think we’ve smoothed things out, so we’ll see how things go… Don’t get me wrong, WWE is a great company and Vince McMahon is a great guy.”

— On playing the babyface role: “Carlito in no way is a babyface. That’s where all the trouble started is they made Carlito a babyface, which I was totally against. The character is not a babyface… I’m back in my comfortable surroundings so hopefully it goes well.”
