Carlito Colon, 41, is backstage at the Royal Rumble PPV in Tampa and is slated to appear as a surprise in the Men's Rumble match.  It would be Carlito's first match for WWE since a Raw house show in May 2010.

The word making the rounds backstage is that Carlito will also be at tomorrow's Raw and there's talk he may be getting a tryout as a Producer for the company.

The former WWE Intercontinental Champion last appeared for WWE inducting his father, Puerto Rico wrestling legend Carlos Colon, at Wrestlemania weekend in April 2014.  WWE has since purchased the video library for the Colon family's World Wrestling Council promotion but has yet to utilize the content on the WWE Network.

Carlito had been slated to appear on the Raw Legends show a few weeks back as the word making the rounds is that he did not want to return for a short cameo.  Instead, he will make his in-ring return to the company during tonight's PPV.
