Carlito: Not Cool

Carlito said no when WWE ordered him to go to rehab.

Afterwards, WWE ordered him to join the “Future Endeavors Club”.

It appears that Carlito, a former Intercontinental, United States, and Tag Team Champion, is high on something. Certainly it’s not praises as his contract was terminated after saying “no” to attend a rehab facility. While yeah, the son of a legendary Caribbean wrestler violated the Wellness Program for the first time, but it’s not like we didn’t see this coming.

One major compliant on Carlito was his inability to get motivated on a consistent basis. Vince McMahon had often de-pushed him for being so lackluster. In the May 24 episode of Raw, the Colons (Carlito and Primo) should be the guys to lay waste on The Hart Dynasty. Instead, they were replaced by the twin spawns of Rikishi, who were managed by the daughter of Superfly Jimmy Snuka. When Carlito started in the WWE ring amidst the promos, the breezy music, a built-in attitude and a moveset that made him stand out, people noticed his star quality. “That’s not cool” is something associated very well to his persona. The backstabber is a great finisher while the apple spit is one of the most unnerving taunts in the company’s history. Let us remember that he started out getting the wins over John Cena. While this was the rapping Cena version, this was also the Cena version that was being launched to greatness. Perhaps this is the reason why Carlito feels he is left out – because it seems like people are passing him up as a washed-up patsy… which is shaping up to be his shtick.

WWE didn’t do anything wrong here. The company has been ravaged following the deaths of Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, and their other former employees that should have known better but didn’t. Scott Hall, known to many as Razor Ramon, just recently was charged with DUI. Jeff Hardy is awaiting trial for his drug possession case while X-Pac is poised to go to some place uncool because of his actions.

Will he return to the WWE? This could probably happen. The only thing he needs to not do is join TNA and hurl insults at WWE. Eventually he’ll learn to appreciate his standing. He is an above-average talker with good offense when motivated. With Rey Mysterio opting to retire soon, the Latino representation of the “E” would depend on these young stars.

You spit in the face of people who don’t know how to be cool?

Try lying down, chewing an apple, and spitting it in the air.

This is the proper way to spit on your self.

Game over.
