WWE News: Former WWE Tag Team Champions making RAW re-debut under new gimmick

Former WWE Tag team Champions Primo and Epico, with Rosa Mendes

The team of Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods, known as The New Day has been the WWE Tag team Champions for more than 260 days and will defend against The Vaudevillains at Extreme Rules pay-per-view. The Vaudevillains and the team of Enzo and Cass made their main roster debut in the post Wrestlemania 32 weekend. After tonight’s RAW, it has been confirmed that another team will be making their main roster debut soon.

Under the gimmick of Shining Stars of Puerto Rico, Primo and Epico will be making their re-debut on RAW next week, from Greensboro, NC. Vignettes for the debut of Primo and Epico started airing from the RAW after WrestleMania 32. The real life cousins, Primo and Epico are former WWE Tag team Champions and held the gold for 106 days in early 2012. As the team failed to connect with the audience, they were soon repackaged as Los Matadores.

Primo and Epico were given the names Diego and Fernando respectively. The gimmick was of two masked Spanish bullfighters with El Torito as mascot. This gimmick lasted from 2013 to 2015 and again failed to attract the fans. Hence the gimmick was dropped and the Creatives decided to repackage the Colon cousins. Only time will tell if the two will be able to gain audience support with this new gimmick or not.
