2017 WWE Superstar Shake-Up Ranked - From Worst To Best

19. The Shining Stars

Shining Stars Colons

If this were a Sporcle quiz naming the performers who moved brand back in April, the chances are that Primo and Epico Colón would be the last two named. Going one further, most fans probably couldn’t guess which brand they were on in the first place. The Shining Stars are at the very bottom of the WWE tag team totem pole these days.

The Colóns’ life on the blue brand got off to a decent start, when they picked up a win over former SmackDown Tag Team Champions American Alpha. This was followed by a whole lot of nothing, before Primo picked up a serious knee injury in June. The former matadors haven’t been seen since.

Despite being two undeniably talented professional wrestlers, it is hard to imagine a world in which Primo and Epico Colón are important cogs in the WWE machine. Whether The Colóns return to SmackDown Live is somewhat irrelevant at this point.


Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved. Now living in Prague, John spends most of his time trying to work out how Tomohiro Ishii still stands upright. His favourite wrestler of all time is Dean Malenko, but really it is Repo Man. He is the author of 'An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery', the best book about the Slavic people that you haven't yet read.
