In a recent interview with WWE After The Bell, the former WWE United States Champion explained the ramifications of his return to WWE, and whether he was there to stay.

“I didn’t like the way things ended. I didn’t expect it would be ten years to get back, but I wanted to at least, even if I came back one time, leave a better taste in my mouth and feel like the hatchet was buried and everything was on the up and up,” said Carlito.

“I’m happy to be back and back around. If that was my last time, it was nice to finally come back and end things on better terms.”

According to the trajectory Carlito took next, it looks like he will spend the rest of his time helping young starts get into their boots. There were talks of him getting a tryout for WWE’s production team. 

“I’ve always liked helping the younger guys. I want the business to do better as a whole. Any part that I can do, I will help out where I can,” said Carlito.

“We’ll see what the future holds. If the conditions are right, I’d love to be back. That was my whole goal. Go away, take a breather, and come back,” concluded the Superstar.

We may not get the apple-spitting character that we all loved, but we definitely will be seeing a lot more of Carlito one way or another. If he doesn’t return full-time to the ring, he surely will fit in NXT, helping the recruits in the ways of the business. 

As of now, there is no official confirmation concerning his status as a full-time or part-time wrestler in WWE.
