Roderick Strong has been doing the talking for Diamond Mine ever since Malcolm Bivens was released from his role last month. Strong was scheduled to wrestle a tag match alongside Damon Kemp this week on NXT 2.0 but that didn’t happen.
WWE aired a backstage segment between all but one member of the Diamond Mine tonight on NXT 2.0. Damon Kemp informed the Creed Brothers and Ivy Nile that Strong won’t be in tag team action against Pretty Deadly due to an ankle injury.
After a couple of minutes going back and forth, the Creed brothers reiterated their intent of getting the NXT Tag Team Championship from Pretty Deadly at NXT: In Your House. Kemp said that he’s just here to make a name for himself while following orders.
Strong is said to have requested his WWE release multiple times in the past several months. He’s been handling the stuff professionally so far. We’ll have to wait and see what’s next for the Diamond Mine leader.
