Another Backstage Update On WWE’s Plans For Carlito Going Forward, Latest On Rhea Ripley

— With her Royal Rumble appearance signaling a permanent promotion to the main roster, Rhea Ripley did not appear on Raw this week and apparently is also not scheduled for Smackdown either on Friday. This would seem to suggest that perhaps a decision on which brand she will ultimately end up on hasn’t yet been determined.

— As noted before, WWE is expected to sign Carlito to a contract that will see him a regular part of the roster moving forward. He reportedly impressed WWE officials with not only his work at the Rumble, but also by showing up in great shape. While the expectation is that he will end up signing a deal, reports that WWE officials currently have him on a three week trial run to see if he is a good fit for the promotion. This report further added that it was MVP who pushed for WWE to bring back Carlito and that ultimately, it was Triple H who gave his approval for it to happen.
