The wrestling world is abuzz with electrifying news following the thunderous reception received by former WWE Intercontinental Champion Carlito at WWE Backlash held in Puerto Rico. Reputable industry sources have purportedly verified that the second-generation superstar has inked a new contract with WWE, staging a dramatic comeback.
According to exclusive insights by PWInsider Elite, Carlito's return is slated for Friday, July 7. This indicates that his comeback is a matter of weeks away and will occur during "WWE SmackDown." The choice of the platform seems appropriate, considering that his allies in the Latino World Order - Santos Escobar, Cruz Del Toro, Zelina Vega, Joaquin Wilde, and Rey Mysterio - have been drafted to the blue brand as part of the impactful 2023 WWE Draft.
Carlito's Surprising WWE Backlash Return
In May, Carlito made an unexpected yet sensational appearance at WWE Backlash. He assisted Grammy-winning artist Bad Bunny in vanquishing Damian Priest at Judgment Day in a thrilling San Juan Street Fight.
The assistance was rendered alongside another WWE legend, Savio Vega. After the action-packed match, Carlito and Vega openly declared allegiance to the Latino World Order. Post his surprise appearance, Carlito maintained an open stance about his future, stating he was "open to whatever" comes next.
Speculation was further fuelled when he was ostensibly spotted in Orlando, Florida, to engage in discussions with WWE. The star played coy at a recent House of Glory event, cheekily teasing, "The rumors are true," but later clarified that he was referring to his match with El Hijo Del Vikingo.
Carlito, the accomplished son of WWE Hall of Famer Carlos Colon Sr., initially lent his talents to WWE from 2003-2010. His illustrious wrestling journey saw him clinch the WWE United States and Intercontinental titles. Moreover, he secured the WWE and World Tag Team Championships during his stint.
In conclusion, wrestling fans can look forward to an exciting period ahead with the return of the charismatic Carlito to the WWE universe. His presence will surely add an extra layer of excitement to the exciting world of professional wrestling.
