— At a Raw brand houseshow in Louisville on March 1, Carlito came out to do an interview wearing a CM Punk shirt with his face cut out of the shirt. Carlito basically said that he cut the face out because he was out of toilet paper. It was done in Louisville because Punk is either based there or was based there. Also, Punk never came out to confront him as they’re on different touring brands, so they’re not building any angle. It’s said to be a receipt over some bad blood the two have regarding something to with WWE Diva Maria Kanellis. Punk at one time dated Maria and Carlito supposedly hit on her. Carlito was able to get away with the house show incident because he is currently in good standing with officials after he agreed to not leave the company back in December. Carlito was promised that he’d be used better if he decided against leaving. His standing also explains Carlito landing a spot in the Money in the Bank match. Punk has some detractors backstage, so Carlito was able to get away with doing this even though it was quite unprofessional of him to air out some dirty laundry when they’re not building an angle off of it.
— Regarding Silas Young’s release from WWE last Monday, he apparently quit. It might have something to do with moving from Louisville to Florida and he didn’t want to.
— As noted last week, German Figueroa a.k.a. former TNA wrestler Apolo, was released as well. He was facing a number of legal issues in Puerto Rico as he missed a court date appearance and then sentenced to jail for 30 days. However, he didn’t turn himself into jail was considered to be a fugitive in the country. It’s also now coming out that Figueroa had apparently failed a drug test in Puerto Rico, although WWE chose not to release his name. WWE’s updated drug policy calls for all new signees to pass a drug test before joining the company.
