This result lead to several changes in Cotto's career, who moved to the Villa Fontana Gym in Carolina, Puerto Rico where he trained under Gerardo Sánchez, Jr., dropping 35 pounds and working on his technique. His next fight was against Suárez, who was returning from a suspension issues due to his actions in the previous fight, but managed to surprise him and score a first-round technical knockout. Cotto was frustrated by the result, arguing that he was hit with several rabbit punches and that referee Ramón Peña failed to notice them, immediately beginning the negotiations for a third fight between them. Colón, Sr., who accompanied him to the ring along Juan and Dennis Rivera, argued that the sudden weight loss had in fact affected his performance, but the finish was described as "controversial" in the media. On April 4, 2015, Cotto defeated Suárez by split decision. This was the same night that he won the WWC Universal Heavyweight Championship, arriving to the wrestling card via helicopter.

He passed the first round for the first time in his third fight, defeating Víctor Pizarro by technical knockout in the second. Cotto's next outing concluded in dramatic fashion, after his opponent remained in the canvas for minutes after being knocked out. On August 31, 2013, he won a disqualification after his opponent, Jimmy Suárez, ignored multiple warning following a series of rabbit punches, prompting referee Luis Pabón to stop the contest. Cotto then made his first fight outside Puerto Rico, defeating Sandy Antonio Soto by unanimous decision in four rounds. His next fight was transitional and featured Los Boricuas as his entrance act, with him scoring a technical knockout over a win-less Óscar Adorno. Cotto repeated the same feat accomplished before, traveling from Caguas to Bayamón in order to compete in a WWC card later in the night. In his second fight at the Dominican Republic, he tied with Carlos Peña via majority draw.
In April 2012, Cotto was involved in an angle in a small independent promotion, the Champion Wrestling Association, in which the CWA Tag Team Champions, a group known as "La Nueva Era", interrupted an homage being held to recognize his career, resulting in a faceoff in which he was joined by Carlos Cupeles. At the CWA's fourth anniversary event, he and Cupeles unsuccessfully challenged for the tag team titles. On May 26, 2012, Pérez made a face turn when Rondón insulted his father, which resulted in the entirety of Zona 101, led by Cotto, joining him and becoming part of Team IWA.
During his youth, Cotto trained to become a boxer along Orlando Piñero and family members Evangelista and Miguel Cotto. But he abandoned boxing in order to pursue a career as a wrestler, keeping this undisclosed to the general public. However, while taking his daughter Doris to a boxing gym he began training himself and soon became interested in resuming his involvement in the sport. On August 24, 2012, Cotto announced that he was officially preparing to begin a parallel career as a boxer. He joined the municipal gymnasium of Aguas Buenas, where he began training along Efraín Román, Armando Alamo, Jonuel Tapia and one of his cousins, Abner Cotto.

After defending the title at Tierra de Nadie 2012, Pérez once again reclaimed his contract. This was followed by confrontations in IWA's Histeria Boricua and Kaos & Odissey, which expanded to include EWO's CEO, Richard Rondón, as well. On February 25, 2012, following more intervention from the IWA, Cotto issued a challenge to end the conflict, an unification match for the EWO World Heavyweight Championship and IWA Undisputed World Heavyweight Championship. On March 1, 2012, the challenge was accepted by Pérez and Rondón in a backstage segment. At Clash of the Titans, Cotto lost the EWO World Championship, losing to a masked wrestler only known as "Bonecrusher", whom he had defeated to win this belt and had since gained the IWA Undisputed Heavyweight Champion. In this match, a new angle was launched that involved him being involved in "friendly" confrontations with the other members of his stable, which was continued in the next event, Payback.
