Possible storyline direction for the unified WWE tag team titles heading into Elimination Chamber

As seen during the February 3rd 2023 edition of WWE Smackdown, Braun Strowman and Ricochet won a tournament to become #1 contenders for the tag tram titles. Strowman and Ricochet are scheduled to challenge The Usos on next week’s Smackdown but Jey has disappeared in the current Bloodline storyline.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com discussed a possible scenario where the “Freebird rule” could be implemented with Solo Sikoa filling in for Jey…

“Braun Strowman and Ricochet have to wrestle The Usos next week. So, that’s a weird one, so maybe they can’t keep Jey out. Maybe Solo, can they do that? I guess they sort of established that on RAW, the Adam Pearce thing. I know Jimmy and Solo did a dark match against Gallows and Anderson last night [Friday], so they are giving them experience as a team, or at least one match as a team, perhaps that is where they will go.” (quote courtesy of RingsideNews.com)
