The WWE has started bringing back former superstars to help with the recent brand extension. According to the latest WWE rumors, Carlito and John Morrison could be the next superstars to make a return to the company.
In a recent article on WWE.com, the WWE looked at the top ten free agents available on the market. The Undertaker, The Rock and Nikki Bella are all expected to be part of it but there were also some surprise names including Carlito.
“Last seen as an active competitor in WWE in 2010, the former Intercontinental, United States and Tag Team Champion was best known for his impressive in-ring acumen and notorious hot temper. Would the Cool Caribbean Superstar join his brother Primo and cousin Epico on Team Red, or would he return to the brand he debuted on in 2003, SmackDown Live? Either way, it would be cool,” the article stated.
The former Intercontinental and United States champion was rumored to be returning to the WWE last year but the two sides were not on the same page regarding money. However, the brand extension has the WWE looking for former talents and they need to bring out all the cash to do it.
The WWE teased a reunion with The Shining Stars and it could certainly give Primo and Epico a big boost. Carlito has great charisma and WWE fans are clamoring for his return. He last appeared on WWE TV in 2014 when he inducted his father, Carlos Colon Sr. into the Hall of Fame.
On the other hand, Sportskeeda reported that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon wants to bring back John Morrison. The former Intercontinental and Tag Team champion is currently signed with Lucha Underground but they could always make a deal similar to what they did with Alberto Del Rio last year.
Other former superstars on the list include Brian Kendrick, Tajiri, The Great Khali, Cryme Tyme and Mickie James. Kurt Angle, MVP, Stevie Richards, Melina and Victoria were not included but they were also linked to a return in the past couple of months.
