WWE has announced that The Wyatt Family will evoke and defend the SmackDown Tag Team titles under the rarely used Freebird Rule.
Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton captured the titles at WWE TLC on Sunday but SmackDown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon and General Manager Daniel Bryan have sanctioned Luke Harper as champion as well, meaning he can also defend the titles.
What is the Freebird Rule?
The rule stipulates that a faction that holds a championship can assign any of its members to defend the title at any given time. The New Day have used this rule in recent years.
