WWE debuted a new stable on NXT this week. Now the Diamond Mine is on the black and gold brand. The Malcolm Bivens led stable could do a lot of damage in NXT.
It was previously reported that WWE plans on putting more of a focus on the Cruiserweight Division in NXT. The Diamond Mine is a part of those plans according to Fightful Select.
This storyline has been in the works for months since Roderick Strong quit NXT in April in the storyline. Now he is back and part of this new stable. Roderick Strong, Tyler Rust, and Hideki Suzuki are the wrestlers in this new stable led by Bivens.
There were reportedly plans to debut the Diamond Mine stable previously, but they held back those plans “more than one occasion for it to take center stage on an episode of NXT.”
It was also confirmed that there were never any plans for Tessa Blanchard or Parker Boudreaux to be a part of the new stable. That was all fan speculation, but there have been other members discussed for the stable.
We’ll have to see what’s next for the Diamond Mine, but they generated a lot of interest this week.
