OAKLAND, Calif. – During a WWE Live Event at Oakland's Oracle Center, Primo & Epico beat Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne to capture the WWE Tag Team Championship. Kingston & Bourne held the titles since Aug. 22, 2011.
The victory for Primo & Epico comes less than a month after they attempted to dethrone "Air Boom" at WWE TLC 2011.
Primo previously won the WWE Tag Team Championship with Carlito in 2008. Then, at the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania, Primo & Carlito defeated World Tag Team Champions John Morrison & The Miz to become the Unified WWE Tag Team Champions. Together, Primo & Carlito held the titles until June 28, 2009, when they were defeated by Edge & Chris Jericho.
The victory marks the first championship in WWE for Epico since his Nov. 4, 2011 debut on SmackDown.
