It appears that the new NXT Tag Team Champions SAnity will be using The Freebird Rule in their tag team championship title defenses. Eric Young and Alexander Wolfe are currently listed as champions on WWE’s website, but at recent NXT Live Events Wolfe has defended the titles with Killian Dain. Young and Wolfe defeated The Authors of Pain at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III to win the championship.
The Freebird Rule refers to a stipulation that allows a group with more than two members to choose any two members to defend their tag team titles. The Freebird Rule was first established by the team of The Fabulous Freebirds. The New Day has most notably used it during their title defenses.
