Carlito Reportedly In Orlando For WWE

Following his surprise return at WWE Backlash, many wrestling fans were optimistic that former Carlito Caribbean Cool might be within reach for future appearances. As of now, Carlito has yet to make a follow-up appearance, but a new report indicates that his communication with WWE has continued.

According to Pro Wrestling Insider Elite, Carlito was spotted in Orlando, Florida on Thursday. PWI Elite were told that Carlito was in town for WWE, but they were unable to confirm the exact nature of his visit. While it remains unknown what specifically Carlito was doing in Florida, it's worth noting that Orlando is the current home for the WWE Performance Center, which typically hosts weekly "WWE NXT" programming and is used to train the majority of WWE's developmental superstars.

Speculation for Carlito's potential WWE comeback deepened when Metro UK posted an interview with the former Intercontinental Champion last month, in which he stated that he was open to returning to the company, or any company, if a good offer presented itself.

"I'm open to whatever, any good offer from anywhere, it doesn't matter," Carlito said. "Thing is, nobody calls me, so I don't sit by the phone, either. If something comes up, great. If not, I keep doing what I'm doing."

Since making his run-in at Backlash, the 44-year-old has wrestled two matches for All-Star Wrestling in British Columbia, Canada. His last in-ring appearance for WWE took place in February 2021, as he and Jeff Hardy defeated Elias on Jaxson Ryker on "WWE Raw." Two days earlier, Carlito was a surprise entrant in the 2021 Men's Royal Rumble match.
