Carlito's debut as a heel

I've been going back watching a lot of old episodes and I can honestly say, I really enjoyed Carlito's debut and his feud with Cena. I think he played a great heel.

Carlito was the greatest. I really hope he comes back, he was amazing and i am sure he can still go at a great level.

Re: Carlito debut as a heel.

Carlito's debut on Smackdown was greatly done. Beating John Cena AND winning the U.S title on the same night. That win truly got his gimmick over with the fans after that. It's funny too, because I didn't expect much from Carlito when they first aired vignettes leading to his debut and thought that he would end up being a Velocity regular but he definitely proved me wrong and showed a lot of potential in his debut.

He was entertaining, I'll give him that. Damn, I loved his Carlito Cabana segments.


ABrown AND ChampviaDQ made my god-tier signature. Once again, always quality work done by two of the GFX lords. Thanks again.

To clarify, my all time favorite will always be CM Punk.

Re: Carlito debut as a heel.

Carlito was so ridiculous that he was funny. I remember the angle were Jesus stabbed Cena in a night club and Cena returned a few weeks later with no scar, to be Carlito.

Re: Carlito debut as a heel.

the Jesus story line was ridiculous in the best way. I mean his music, his hair, his apple-spitting-jericho-originated gimmick all of it was great. Every component of him had something that was specific to him. The way creative worked with him reminded me more of the attitude era, where gimmicks were far more thorough. These days the gimmicks aren't gimmick sometimes, just adjectives.

Re: Carlito debut as a heel.

Carlito was great but he got so discouraged by politics that he got lazy and complacent.

People get on Kofi's case but Carlito was far worse when it came to coasting.

Thank you Edge.

Re: Carlito debut as a heel.

Carlito was my favorite debut out of any superstar.It was awesome especially when he defeated Cena for the United States Championship.

Exactly, and that was my only problem with him. Him and MVP think they deserved more but they both got lazy and didnt try anymore. Hopefully if they come back they will give it 100% and maybe get a push.
