Epico Colon undergoes shoulder surgery


Epico Colon is facing some time out of action after undergoing shoulder surgery this week.

He wrote on Twitter following the procedure: "Surgery done!!!! Thank you to my lovely wife, mom and son for being there for me!!! And Dr Dugas for an awesome job!! Now time to rehab and get better!"

PWInsider reported that Epico underwent the surgery in Birmingham, Alabama yesterday. Further details on the injury and the timetable for his return have yet to be made clear.

Though they haven't been regularly featured on television in several months, The Colons have been active on the SmackDown house shows. They were wrestling as of less than two weeks ago, facing The Bludgeon Brothers and The Ascension in triple threat tag matches.

The Colons joined the SmackDown tag team division in last April's roster shakeup and were repackaged as they dropped their "Shining Stars" gimmick. Primo suffered a knee injury last summer and was forced to miss three months before returning in September.
