NXT’s Diamond Mine: A Review

Roderick Strong is back, he's bad, and he's almost bald

NXT’s newest stable made their official debut last night- after weeks of teasing with vignettes, we have an answer to who is behind the Diamond Mine faction. It’s Malcolm Bivens, managing known Bivens Enterprises client Tyler Rust, NXT newcomer Hideki Suzuki, and lead by a returning Roderick Strong. This marked Strong’s first time back on TV after threatening to quit several months ago, and the first appearance of Suzuki on NXT. The group attacked Kushida Wednesday following his match with Kyle O’Reilly, using the chaos of Adam Cole going after O’Reilly to beat down the champ. This ended with Bivens presenting the Cruiserweight Title to Strong, before gently laying it atop a crushed Kushida.
