Carlito made an appearance on MLW’s Konnan Show and spoke for the first time about a fight that took place after hours with John Cena during his WWE run.
“I actually had a fight with Cena,” he said. “I forget where it was, but we got into a fight. A drunken fist fight. He told me I wasn’t applying myself. He said I should be at a higher level. I didn’t punch him because I’m not going to punch the face of the company. It was more like a drunken fight. I don’t think we were out to hurt each other. I was just defending myself, but Cena, he’s strong as hell.”
He added, “[Cena] jumped at me first. They ended up separating us about three times. I felt like he and I had always been close. I think he just wanted to see me do better. Cena is one of those guys that’s a top guy, but he wants to see other guys. He doesn’t try to hold guys down, he wants to see them come up.”
Carlito also talks about being told that he needed to “be more like Eddie Guerrero” after Eddie’s death, CM Punk being disliked backstage and more.
