• Secret WWE Match Rule Revealed On This Week’s RAW
On this week’s episode of RAW, Rhea Ripley & Nikki A.S.H. defeated Natalya & Tamina to win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship.
There is a secret rule in WWE Tag Team Matches that a wrestler can only break a pinfall attempt on his partner once.
WWE doesn’t tell this rule to the fans, but RAW Commentator Jimmy Smith let it out on this week’s show.
Here’s what the Wrestling Observer is reporting about it:
“You know Jimmy Smith mentioned in that Natalya match when Rhea Ripley made a save, it’s like ‘Now they’re not allowed to do anymore saves’.
Well, they told us, it’s a one-save rule. You get one save. It’s been an official rule for years, but they never said it on TV.”
