well the promos lead me to believe they would be authentic and classy Mexican wrestlers. At first they looked authentic and paying tribute to their heritage, but then they stopped and out came a little guy in a bull costume. Unless that's what goes on down in Mexico (I don't know), that doesn't seem very heritage-[i]ful[i] or authentic.
I think that's why people seem pissed or confused. It went from an authentic, paying respect to Mexican/Luchadore wrestlers to instead being somewhat of a comedy gimmick. That's why I'm upset with their debut. Del Rio is the bad guy, a Mexican wrestler; so an authentic and serious Mexican face would have been "Best for Business". At least I think right now. We already have enough comedy gimmicks in WWE.
Lol it was obvious from the start that they was gonna be a comedy team. I mean just look at the cheesy promo's with the fake crowd and two guys in pink masks pretending to be bull fighters. From the narrator to the outfits to the cheesy effects you could tell they wasn't a serious team.
The name, that doesn't mean much. I understand it's a Spanish name, but the promos talked about history and legend. Then outcomes a little guy who outshines the main wrestlers. Asenath said he was an actual wrestler, that's great. But I don't want the comedy part of their gimmick to outshine the wrestling.
I don't want to lock in my opinion yet though; their initial debut. Their finisher was awesome so I look forward to seeing them again
I don't typically like WWE's brand of humor but I actually laughed out loud a couple times during Los Matadores' debut. They have the sort of gimmick that people could actually enjoy without taking them too seriously so what's the harm in letting them go for a while? Primo and Epico are both good workers that have exciting movesets and then when you add in the bull it's pretty great. I'd much rather see them be silly with this than legitimately trying to put them over as bullfighters.
Its obvious as hell they was only made to get the Ole! chant away from Sami Zayne when he debuts. They're pushing the Ole chant so hard so people will relate the chant with them and not Sami.
Am glad I wasn't the only guy thinking that. However, the WWE crowd is hardly aware of Sami's chant anyways. Even if a few people in the crowd had started it on his debut or whatever - the casuals probably would not have bought in and it might have died over time.
Literally fell asleep during the match. Last I remember was some child in a bull costume hopping up and down the ropes and last thing I was thinking was I hope they didn't do all that build for this bullshit and that the little bull guy is going to get over more than the wresters. The costumes are a sore to look at as well.
