Roderick Strong was recently revealed as the leader of the new Diamond Mine faction when he returned to NXT.
It is now being reported that this is all part of a bigger plan and that Strong is set for a significant push on the black and gold brand for the second half of 2021.
According to Fightful Select, Strong signed a contract extension ahead of his return to the company, and that he is set to feature in NXT’s plans in a big way.
This could well be as part of the Cruiserweight Division, which there have been plenty of reports the company are looking to bolster and feature more heavily in the near future.
Strong made his return as Diamond Mine debuted two weeks ago, attacking Kushida in the process.
We’ll have to wait and see quite how strong Roddy’s push is.
