Olé! The Matadores, the WWE's newest tag team, looks to soon be making their way to WWE programming, but the repackaged team of Primo and Epico has not been without their detractors.
Though the details of the Matadores's gimmick have not been disclosed (neither Primo nor Epico have yet to compete in the ring under their new look), the team's flashy outfit and hot pink masks has already earned them some critics.
Other skeptics question the Matadores's success due to the nature of their stereotypical characters. The men formally known as Primo and Epico are of Puerto Rican origin, they but are set to play a pair of Spanish bullfighters using a gimmick that resembles the creative direction of the WWE in the '80s, when its characters were considered to be more "cartoon-like" and less "complex."
Regardless of these detractors, the Matadores are deserving of a chance. This is not the first time fans have cried foul in regard to a debuting character's vignettes only to later fall in love with the gimmick.
