Carlito Bio

Carlito is a Puerto Rican native who started wrestling for the World Wrestling Council (WWC) under the name Carly in 1999. Carlito is the son of former WWF wrestler Carlos Colon, Sr. and the oldest of four siblings, including Eddie Colon and Stacy Colón, both of whom have performed with Colón in the World Wrestling Council. His mother, Nancy, is Canadian. A second sister, Melissa didn't enter the wrestling business. Other members of Colón's family have also been involved in the World Wrestling Council; his uncle José Colón and cousin Orlando Colón have been involved in several angles within the company.

After great success in the WWC Carlito signed a developmental contract with the WWE in 2003. This move by Carlito caused much controversy in Puerto Rico as many fans seen Carlito as a sell out to Americas flashy company. Carlito's reply to his critics was "I did not care about what they thought. I've always dreamed of working for the WWE when I was young, and I took that chance when it came." Carlito occasionally still performs for the WWC where he is a multiple time Universal Heavyweight Champion.

He wrestled for WWE's farm territory then started doing dark matches for Raw beginning in December of 2003. On October 7, 2004 Carlito made his WWE debut on the Smackdown brand. He defeated John Cena for the United States Championship. No mistake here, in his debut! Carlito held the title for forty two days before John Cena took the title back. Carlito would then get his own segment called Carlito's Cabana.

In 2005 Carlito was drafted to WWE's Raw brand and in his Raw debut he beat Shelton Benjamin to become the new Intercontinental Champion. Carlito sure has ways with debut's! Carlito then had an on screen relationship with WWE diva Trish Stratus until Trish's wrestling career came to retirement. Carlito has been quite a ladies man as he would later also get involved in an on screen relationship with Torrie Wilson.

During his career Carlito has feuded with WWE's biggest superstars and was drafted back to Smackdown in the 2008 WWE draft. After the draft Carlito was given some time off because he wanted to attend his father's official retirement ceremonies at Aniversario 2008, where he also wrestled against Ray Gonzalez.

On September 12, 2008 Carlito re-debuted with his brother Primo Colon on Smackdown. They appeared as the Colons and beat the tag team champions Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder in a non title match.

On September 26, 2008 Carlito and Primo would once again face Ryder and Hawkins on Smackdown. This time though the WWE tag team belts were at steak. Carlito and Primo didn't disappoint as they became the new WWE tag team champions.

The Colins then became good friends with the Bella twins and started feuding a lot with Brian Kendrick and Ezekiel. After that feud ended a new feud began with the World tag team champions, the Miz and John Morrison. The feud even eventually led one of the Bella twins, Nickie Bella to stray away and side with the Miz and Morrison. This rivalry would eventually lead to a match at Wrestlemania 15 on April 5, 2009 in a Lumberjack Match as these teams both both up their tag team titles on the line. The Colons won the match at Wrestlemania 25 to hold the WWE Tag Team Titles and the World Tag Team Titles.

During the 2009 Supplemental Draft the Colon brothers were both drafted to RAW.

At The Bash, the duo dropped the Unified Tag Team Titles to Edge and Chris Jericho in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match also involving Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes. Carlito and Primo invoked their rematch clause the next night on Raw, but were unsuccessful. On the July 6 episode of Raw, they lost to Edge and Jericho, and afterwards Carlito attacked Primo thus ending the Colons' partnership and turning Carlito into a heel in the process.
