WWE Superstar Carlito (Carlos Colon) has been released from his World Wrestling Entertainment contract as of today May 21, 2010. Carlito’s termination was due to his first violation of the WWE Wellness Program and his subsequent refusal to attend a rehabilitation facility.

First strike and he's out. Isn't refusal to attend rehab what got Umaga fired?

They did not wish him well on his future endeavors. That's not cool.

Well, the way I remember it, he never was that big on actually BEING a wrestler, so I can see where he'd maybe get tired of it and not want to attend rehab as an excuse to be able to quit.

I was wondering if a Pro would be released during the NXT season. Turns out, yes!

That's kind of what I thought too, when it came to this. Carlito saw his chance at an out, and took it.

Sucks for Primo, though.

And there's really nothing left for Primo to do at this point, so I give it about two weeks before he's future endeavored.

You know, I remember at Unforgiven '06 when they booked Carlito and Orton in one of the upper midcard matches. Carlito was in the middle of his angle with Trish and Orton was starting to get a major heel push after his post-Evolution failed face turn. I remember saying at the time that the E had booked themselves in a corner and that the winner would eventually hit the main event while the loser would go straight to Jobberville. There was really no other way to go. Orton won clean and...well, the rest was history.

Carlito had a lot of potential, but it just never clicked, which is just a shame.

Irrc he had been trying to get released for a while and was very unhappy. Hopefully he gets the help he needs along the way. Amazing how far he fell. He went from beating Cena for The US Title and Shelton Benjamin for the I.C Title less than a year into his run. The last few years nothing for the most part and wrestling on Superstars the past year or so.

Cousin Orlando is in developmental, so he could be called up to take Carlito's place.

I've always liked Carlito, but he never seemed like he cared or put a lot of effort into things, he was just there. I'm guessing that's why he's always had an on and off again push. Maybe this will light a fire under his ass?

eh, no loss ... besides, he's probably made some cash & banged a couple divas along the way ... hard to feel bad for him.

Does "rehabilitation facility" tip off that it was for recreational drug use? I'm not sure there's much to do with PED's except tell someone to stop using.. maybe an educational program.

I was a fan, but if he doesn't care enough to follow through after one strike, I guess that says Carlito has better things to do with his life.

It's certainly why Kurt Angle is in TNA right now (and depending on who you ask, Jeff Hardy).

If he refused to go to rehab it's potentially serious. Hopefully he smartens up a bit.

Steroids can be addicting too. Usually it's because some can mask chronic pain, but also you can become addicted to 'looking good' and think you need the roids to maintain that look.

Either way, my gut says he smoked weed a few times waiting to get caught so he could get out of his contract. If he's not happy as a wrestler, then hopefully he's saved enough money to get started in something that he wants to do.

Meltzer said without saying that Carlito showed up to Toronto In No Condition To Compete with large amounts of painkillers without a prescription, which is why he had to go to rehab even without a failed test or any strikes.

Relax fellas, I'm sure he will be going to NWATNA rehab with all the other wrestlers that have failed drug tests.

NWA/TNA? So you are either very hardcore old school, or don't follow the current product? Or both. It's funny either way. Still call it the WWF? I ask because I usually do.

It's both you are correct! Old school rules, I miss those days!

Well, i knew this was going to happen eventually, but I'd be lying if I say I'm not a little surprised. He seemed like he was in line for a push on Raw, too bad we won't get to see what the plans were.

He took that money DiBiase gave him and bought drugs.
