It's a bit confusing at times.

You can sometimes choose another partner such as Chris Jericho when Edge got injured when he chose The Big Show as his partner or in examples from TNA when Matt Morgan held the tag titles and looked for different partners or the titles are vacated like when Awesome Kong was released from TNA when she was partnered up with Hamada they vacated the titles, instead of letting her choose another partner.

So what is the more general or correct way to handle the championships when a partner is injured or released from a promotion? I tried to look it up online but not much info came up and it left me even more confused than before.

I hope someone can finally clear this up for me, thank you in advance and I wish you all a good day.

they get replaced or are defended by the sole survivor in a two on one match although they should be vacated then have a tourney

Nowadays the general rule when you lose a tag team partner while being champions is that one of you turns heel while the other gets future endeavored.

All right thx everyone for your input on the matter.

I needed this info for a future BTB project where I plan to break up a tag team during their title reign due to an injury and wanted to be sure I was as realistic as I could be in that situation. The guy who stays will either stay champion with a new partner or lose the titles those are my 2 best options.

Thx again everyone you've been very helpful.

You can really do anything you want.

Plenty of guys have replaced an injured teammate. Jericho replaced Edge with Big Show, Sam Anoia replaced Sika in the Wild Samoans, etc. etc.

Other teams have been stripped of the title when one can't compete.

Others have been stripped when the other guy already is (Bob Backlund) or becomes (Diesel) world champion. Other times, the world champ has been allowed to have two titles (John Cena).
