In August 2013, WWE hyped the debut of Los Matadores, and on the September 30 Raw, Primo and Epico debuted new characters, as Diego and Fernando of Los Matadores, a face team of two masked Spanish bullfighters with El Torito as mascot as they defeated 3MB. It was the start of a winning streak that featured nine wins over 3MB (with El Torito wrestling in some matches), and also over The Real Americans (Antonio Cesaro and Jack Swagger) at Hell in a Cell. Also, El Torito was able to interfere in matches without incurring a disqualification for Los Matadores. Los Matadores' winning streak was finally snapped on the January 24 SmackDown in 2014, courtesy of Curtis Axel and Ryback. On the March 5 edition of WWE Main Event, Los Matadores received a tag team championship match against The Usos in which they were defeated. They also made an appearance as Primo and Epico alongside Carlito to induct Carlos Colon into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2014. On the WrestleMania XXX pre-show, they received a WWE Tag Team Championship shot against The Usos, RybAxel, and The Real Americans, in a Fatal Four-Way Elimination Tag Team match, but lost after being the first team eliminated when Fernando submitted to Jack Swagger's Patriot Lock. On June 23 WWE.com reported that Fernando was injured at a live event that past weekend. The team would return on August 19 on an edition of Main Event in a losing effort against Titus O'Neil and Heath Slater. On October 7, Los Matadores competed on the 15th Anniversary of Smackdown, alongside their mascot El Torito, The Usos, Jack Swagger, Mark Henry, and Sheamus in a winning effort against Goldust, Stardust, Heath Slater, Titus O'Neil, Bo Dallas, The Miz, and Hornswoggle. They later competed at Survivor Series in a fatal four-way tag team match for the WWE Tag Team Championship. Los Matadores were unsuccessful as The Miz and Damien Mizdow were victorious and became the new WWE Tag Team Champions. On March 5, 2015, Los Matadores challenged Cesaro and Tyson Kidd for the WWE Tag Team Championship on an edition of Smackdown in a losing effort. A few weeks later, Los Matadores competed on the pre-show of Wrestlemania XXXI in the fatal four-way tag team match for the WWE Tag Team Championship. Once again, Cesaro and Tyson Kidd were victorious. Los Matadores then competed in the Andre the Battle Royal later on in the pre-show. Diego and Fernando were both eliminated by Kane. On May 31, Los Matadores competed in the first-ever tag team Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Tag Team Championship. Los Matadores were the first team eliminated, being eliminated by The Ascension.
