Well that didn’t take long. WWE is a place where a lot of things change in a hurry and that is always going to be the case. They don’t like to wait around with some people and if their job is done or if they are not getting over, there is only so much that can be said about them. At the same time, there are people who are brought up for a short form story only and nothing else is going to happen for them. That isn’t a bad thing, but it can be a little surprising. That seems to be the case with someone who only debuted on Monday Night Raw a short time ago.
Two weeks ago, a masked luchadora named Carolina debuted on Monday Night Raw to help Sin Cara in his battles against Andrade and Zelina Vega. Carolina was brought in to cancel Vega out, as she had interfered and cost Cara his first match against Andrade, meaning Cara needed some backup for the rematch. This led to a mixed tag, where Cara and Carolina were defeated, meaning that the help had not quite worked out. It turns out that things were rather short lived.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Carolina is already done on Monday Night Raw, though she will continue to appear in NXT, where she was only signed back in September. There is no word on any heat on Carolina and it is believed that she was only ever going to be brought in for two shows. WWE has done similar things before, such as last year when Nikki Cross was used on a single episode of SmackDown before being put back in NXT full time. There is no word on any current plans to bring Carolina back to the main roster any time soon.
Blink and you’ll miss her. Check out Carolina’s appearance on Monday Night Raw:
Opinion: You could tell this wasn’t going to be a long term deal when the announcers couldn’t get her name right. Carolina is only nineteen years old and is likely going to need a lot more seasoning and experience down in NXT before she is ready for the main roster. There is nothing wrong with that as it comes with being young. Her work on Monday Night Raw was fine, though it was one match and that is hardly enough to show that you are ready for the full time deal. I’m not sure why WWE bothered with the two appearances, but it isn’t like this is some kind of a demotion.
What did you think of Carolina? How long before she is on NXT TV? Let us know in the comments below.
