I recently watched this past years MitB PPV again last night and after watching Epico and Primo's match with PTP again, I truly appreciate how much they are great workers and realize how underrated they are.
They are truly my favorite WWE tag team now and I hope they are allowed to work the way they did in that match more often in the future. Colons vs. Usos in a ladder match would truly steal the show and revitalize the tag team division in the same manner E&C and The Hardys did.

I think underrated is definitely the best word to describe those two. Primo more then Epico, but Epico is still pretty talented. Both are talented, it's weird. Primo and Epico were more talented then Carlito, but Carlito got the big push, though he has more charisma then the both of them. I'd like to have him come back with Primo and Epico, to add that spark of charisma, and he and his brother had incredible chemistry as a team, so they could maybe do another three man group, as that seems to be the in thing now.
It's funny because as much emphasis as WWE puts on Tag Teams, they still seem to treat ACTUAL tag teams like jobbers and put more emphasis on teams who are clearly singles wrestlers thrown together.
I thought that was their attempt to lift these actual tag team wrestlers, i.e. getting them to feud with wrestlers who are already pretty over. But that doesn't seem the case now, with the "singles wrestlers thrown together" tag teams seeming to feud among themselves only.
On the topic, I think Primo and Epico are definitely underrated. Their matches are very entertaining, at least on par with Kidd and Gabriel, but more love seems to be given to the latter two.

PrimEpico are easily my favourite tag team right now (and have been for awhile), and I definitely agree that they're underrated. They're both so talented; it's frustrating to see them being used the way they are right now.
