Backstage Report – WWE Institutes Stricter Rules for their Tag Team Matches

According to reports, WWE begun tightening down the rules on interference in tag-team matches during Monday night’s WWE Raw broadcast. During the broadcast, WWE announcer Corey Graves mentioned on commentary that tag team matches would no longer allow partners to run in and make saves on a regular basis. The partners would only be allowed one such “save” before the team gets disqualified. This was the reason that Braun Strowman’s attack on Baron Corbin caused Braun Strowman and Kurt Angle to get disqualified during the main event of the show.

Of course, all of this will be moot in certain circumstances as is WWE’s way. Match storylines will likely be scripted in such a way to allow the heels to do it behind the referee’s back, or during ref bumps and the like. The changes appear as if they may be part of WWE’s promise to The Revival that they would revamp the tag-team division and give it more focus going forward. This was reportedly done to keep them from leaving WWE, as they both recently asked for their WWE releases.
