The Colóns used to be the Shining Stars who used to be Los Matadores who used to be just Primo & Epico.
Now, according to a rumor floating around, they used to be employed by WWE. Allegedly.
In a report on SuperLuchas.com, which was Tweeted out by the official account for Puerto Rican wrestling promotion WWC, which is owned by Carlos Colón (father to Primo and uncle to Epico), it's possible that the cousins may have asked for their release or perhaps they may be about to--the website is written entirely in Spanish and Google Translate is not exactly one hundred percent reliable.
At any rate, it all comes back to this Tweet:

Orlando Colón is Epico's real name, and the shirts showed up on ProWrestlingTees yesterday
For those not in the know, WWE performers aren't allowed to sell their own T-Shirts, so the SuperLuchas drew the only logical conclusion: Epico must not be long for the WWE. And Primo must be leaving with him.
We'll let you know if anything is either confirmed or denied.
