• Carlito Reacts To Missing RAW Legends Night
The first WWE RAW of 2021 was a Legends Night special, which featured appearances from a lot of legends. However, not all of the past names who were advertised for the show appeared on it.
WWE had announced that Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle, Carlito, Mick Foley and Candice Michelle would also be a part of the Legends Night, but the four of them were not there.
There were rumors before RAW went on air that Carlito and Candice Michelle wouldn’t be on the show because they were facing travel issues.
Carlito didn’t say anything about missing Legends Night, but he explained his feelings through a GIF in which Karen Filippelli of The Office was giving a shrug.

There have been multiple reports about Carlito’s absence. The report from PWInsider states that he was in the script for the show, but was pulled from it later.
A report from WrestlingInc states that someone in the WWE social media team had just jumped on to making the announcement of Carlito’s return, but it was never made official and WWE had just sent feelers out for him to appear on RAW.
The Caribbean Cool Superstar last appeared on WWE programming during his father, Carlos Colon’s Hall Of Fame induction.

• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (January 5, 1985) – WWF Georgia Championship Wrestling on TBS
On this day in 1985, the World Wrestling Federation aired another episode of their TV show ‘World Championship Wrestling’ on Ted Turner’s channel TBS.
‘World Championship Wrestling’ originally belonged to the Georgia Championship Wrestling territory, which Vince McMahon bought in July 1984 (leading to the infamous “Black Saturday”).
After the first ever WrestleMania event in 1985, McMahon sold the TV-show and the timeslot on TBS that came with it, to the Atlanta based Jim Crockett Promotions, who kept the ‘World Championship Wrestling’ name and continued the show as a weekly Saturday night Wrestling show.
Ted Turner eventually bought Jim Crockett Promotions in late 1988 and renamed it ‘World Championship Wrestling’, which ironically was also the name of its weekly A-show, until they changed the show’s name to ‘WCW Saturday Night’ in 1992.
The World Wrestling Federation product ran on this show from July 14, 1984 until March 25, 1985.
This episode featured pre-taped matches & interviews on the road to the first ever WrestleMania event.
