The Creed Brothers Join Diamond Mine
Roderick Strong, the leader of Diamond Mine, made a severe statement in his open challenge this week on WWE NXT. Strong wasn’t just accompanied by Malcolm Bivens and Hideki Suzuki of Diamond Mine, as the Diamond Mine recruits known as the Creed Brothers were also at ringside.
Ikeman Jiro answered the call, and Strong made him pay all match long. The former Undisputed Era star hit a nasty hip toss on Jiro against the steel steps. Strong remained dominant as Jiro’s back became the focus for “The Messiah of the Backbreaker.” Jiro soon gained a brief window of momentum against Strong, but a pop-up vertical backbreaker not once, but twice, kept Ikeman down for the 1-2-3. –
Strong then made it clear to KUSHIDA post-match that the Cruiserweight Championship is his to hold.
