It's different it's something I want to see before judging it. Tito Santana was a fine worker and I didn't care if he was a "matador" or a "butcher" as long as he kept delivering and being a big name for the Latino community. Primo and Epico are both two great workers, they are fun and athletic. They also come from a big wrestling family in Puerto Rico so that's just one proof that they have what it takes to make it work.

Be open about it instead of crapping on it just because it's a different gimmick. I'm sure they are not gonna be pushed to be on my TV for more than 15 minutes on a Monday Night Raw. They could a babyface duo or an heel cocky duo that are there to make fun of their opponents and stuff. I'm interested to see what they are going to do, if I like it, well great! If I don't like it, then I'll come here and complain.

I'm not sure what to make of it yet, I think the vignette came off really cheesy but once they get out there it might be much better. I like teams that have an identity like teams in the 80's had so they have that as a plus point for me.

First off Primo and Epico I believe are Puerto Rican not Mexican. Sorry, just a pet peeve of mine. But most importantly, am I excited about this gimmick? Not really. But dont count anything out. If I asked everyone in January if they thought a ballroom dancing gimmick would work everyone would laugh me out of the boards. And now look at Fandango. Although he has lost some momentum he is still popular and his song was #1 on some charts. Dont count them out it may just be the next big thing in the tag team division.

If you market the guy right, a masked wrestler can be a good option on the card. Provided he has some grasp of the english language, can talk his fair share and provide his quota of exciting spots and matches.


I haven't seen their promo, and I'm not that hopeful. What would be neat if we did have a good masked wrestler though.


How old is Liger? Can we replicate his kinky mask as replicas?

Mantaur needs to make a comeback.


I don't think they will be jobbers. Well not just yet. A few Oles later maybe. I dunno this seems like a "Fad Gimmick". As in people might latch onto the Oles and just run with it making this group a fun live experience.

I just read a story updating the situation and is looks as though Los Matadores will have a mascot.

Earlier this year, WWE signed Mascarita Dorada to a developmental deal and he's going to be accompanying Los Matadores. Dorada is a mini, better known to us as a "midget wrestler". He's 31 years of age, 4'5" in height and 110 pounds. WWE has also trademarked the names "Torlito" and "Torito", so I'm guessing those will be the new monikers for Epico & Primo.

I can't say I'm excited at all about this. The inclusion of a mini sidekick, mascot or whatever could indicate that this is going to be sort of a goofy, comedy team. The first vignette we saw of them last night already makes it kind of difficult, based on first impressions, to take the team seriously; so this only makes it harder. Two guys running around dressed as matadors wearing masks with a midget sidekick: this sounds like it has Vince McMahon's fingerprints all over it.

That was the whole point of signing Sin Cara. He was a a HUGE draw in Mexico as Mistico. He was supposed to be the next latin hero.

The problem lied in that Sin Cara didn't go to FCW to figure out how to work a match in the WWE. Couple that with the fact that he botched his matches, can't cut promos in english, injuries, and a terrible theme song, it all fell apart.

Epico and Primo are skilled in the ring, they just lack charisma. Maybe this will make them popular. Masks are good merchandise to move, but throughout the history of wrestling in the United States only Rey was able to a huge merch machine.

That's why my hope is in Samuray del Sol. Unlike Mistico, he's actually worked in the States and probably has a better understanding of how things work in the USA.

I am mothafuckin PUMPED for this. If the WWE needs anything, its more gimmicks, more creativity, and more solidified tag teams. It will get them ten times further than wht they were doing before, which was nothing, with no gimmick at all.

Do they remind anyone else of Los Guerrero's? I hope this tag team gets booked properly, I think they could get over very well.
Imagine when Los Matadores break up. Sin Cara & Epico(Rey & Eddie?)
I don't know. That's what this reminds me of.
