The Freebird rule allows a member of any faction to be champions even when his other teammates win the belt and the current WWE Champion Kofi Kingston is no stranger to this rule.
Kingston has been a part of the New Day since 2014 and the group has applied this rule throughout their five tag title reigns since the group’s inception.
However, during a recent interview with The Daily Star Kingston talked about the members of the New Day possibly challenging him for the WWE title and claimed that they obey the Freebird rule with the WWE title too.
Continuing on the topic, Kofi said that he would have supported Big E or Xavier Woods the same way they are supporting him now if they became the WWE Champion and when one of them achieves success, they all achieve it:
“If Big E or Woods were WWE Champion right now I would support them as much as they have supported me. And they feel the same way. We all work together and when one of us achieves the ultimate level of success, we all achieve it.”
Kofi’s claims make the situation pretty interesting and the Freebird rule being applied to the WWE title is something fans would love to see. Though so far, WWE has not confirmed this and they have only acknowledged Kofi Kingston alone as the WWE Champion.
