As noted a few days ago, there was a rumor going around about Carlito possibly returning to WWE. Well, there was smoke to that fire. WWE's money offer to Carlito was low so he declined. That doesn't mean that a deal can't be worked out if a better money offer is made.
WWE wanted to bring him back as part of whatever they are doing with Los Matadores. They have been working on repackaging them and whatever the plans are for them have not been finalized. They had been doing stuff to lead people to think that they would be splitting with El Torito. Earlier this year they started an angle that was supposed to lead to Los Matadores and Hornswoggle facing The Lucha Dragons and El Torito but that was dropped.
I hope that the plans for Carlito didn't involve putting him under a mask as the third Los Matadores member.
