Savio Vega and Carlito make surprise appearances at Backlash in Puerto Rico

As if you thought the Puerto Rico crowd couldn’t get any louder, Bad Bunny and the LWO had two aces up their sleeves: Puerto Rico’s own Savio Vega and Carlito.

Vega and Carlito might not have been the biggest WWE Superstars ever, but the duo have legendary status in Puerto Rico and you can imagine how crazy the crowd went when they each appeared during the street fight between Bad Bunny and Damian Priest.

Vega had appeared earlier in the show in a backstage segment where he gave Bunny a kendo stick with a Puerto Rican flag on it. But Carlito – and his apple – were kept as a surprise and the crowd went absolutely bananas when he appeared.

Both Vega and Carlito got in on the action as Judgment Day and the LWO brawled all over the place. Carlito even got to spit the apple in Dom’s face much to the enjoyment of the crowd.

Carlito enjoyed a seven-year career in WWE from 2003 to 2010 and then made sporadic appearances throughout the years. His last match in WWE was in February 2021 when he teamed up with Jeff Hardy against Elias and Jaxson Ryker. He is a former WWE United States, Intercontinental, Tag Team, and World Tag Team champion.

Vega worked for WWE between 1993 and 1999 and while he started as Kwang, things got better for him when he dumped the gimmick. He is mostly remembered for being part of the Nation of Domination and the leader of Los Boricuas. His last appearance before yesterday was in November 2020 when he showed up at the Survivor Series for The Undertaker’s retirement ceremony.
