It was the moment that WWE Raw fans were waiting for — Primo and Epico’s return but repackaged as The Shining Stars. It was amazing to watch them fight Scott Jackson and Brian Kennnedy in the ring and we have the video so you can relive their epic showdown.
How can you not love this?! Primo and Epico made their debut during the WWE Raw episode from the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, NC., on May 16 and it was everything. The wrestlers came out wearing what looked to be speedos while standing proudly before the Puerto Rican flag. They walked toward the ring holding pink flowers seemingly taunting their opponents and it was so funny!
As they walked out the announcers said that they had a combined weight of 240 lbs and you could hear one of them say, “We are finally here!” “Look Epico, there it is,” Primo said. Epico responds, “Primo, esa, el la nuestra isla bonita. You see this ring? This ring is our island and every time we step between those ropes that ring transforms into our beloved Puerto Rico and we welcome people from all across the world.” Epico chimes in, “Even tourists, like the two of you [pointing to Scott Jackson and Brian Kennedy].” Epico continues, “So tonight, we would like to reward you and everybody else in this arena by sharing a little piece of our Puerto Rican paradise.”
The next thing we witnessed were The Shining Stars absolutely pummeling Scott and Brian. At one point Epico closelines Scott and it’s scary! They went on to win the match and the crowd went absolutely wild. Clearly it was smart for the WWE to repackage Primo and Epico as this tag team and we can’t wait to see more of them!
