The Raw Legends Night show on Monday night was a success for WWE and it’s more proof that stars from the past can still draw solid numbers but many fans were not happy about Carlito not being on the show, despite being advertised to be there. He wasn’t the only person who was advertised and not on the show.
Candice Michelle told Wrestling Inc. that she was falsely promoted and was never asked to be on the show but in Carlito’s case, they did try to get him on the show but he declined.
PWInsider’s Mike Johnson said on his audio show that Carlito was told what he was going to do on the show and he was not interested after he was told what they had in mind for him.
Johnson said, “I was told Carlito found out he was just getting a cameo, and said ‘Hey, but thanks, when you want me to come wrestle or do something, I’m happy to do it. I don’t want to travel across the country, just to do a 2-minute cameo'”
After Raw ended, Carlito indicated on Twitter that he wasn’t bothered by not being part of the Legends Night show.
