PRWrestling.com shared the news that Epico Colon won the WWC Universal Heavyweight Championship this past Saturday after defeating “The Precious One” Gilbert in singles action and afterwards, it was revealed that Epico will defend the title against his cousin Primo on September 14. The two cousins are still under contract with WWE, but have taken the time to compete under their home base WWC brand that’s currently going through a re-branding. The news bit is below:

This past Saturday, Orlando “Epico” Colon captured for the first time the WWC Universal Heavyweight title after beating “The Precious One” Gilbert in the main event of WWC’s Anniversary show in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico.

Ray Gonzalez returned after a year hiatus to be the special guest referee for the match.

After Epico’s victory, all the Colons and other wrestlers celebrated in the ring, but Gonzalez had a bombshell announcement for Epico: He will have to defend the title in September against his cousin, Primo Colon.

The match will happen at “Septiembre Negro”, September the 14th in Caguas and will mark the first time ever that the “Shinning Stars” will clash against one another.

Both Primo and Epico are still under contract to WWE but have been more present in WWC during the past months, being involved not only as talents but also helping with the rebrand of the company which now has a new logo, updated Universal belt and new lightning equipment, among other changes, reports PRWrestling.com.
