WWE has seen a lot of roster turnover recently, but some stars have agreed to new deals with the company. One of which we've heard of is Roderick Strong, one of the members of the new Diamond Mine faction, agreeing to terms on a contract extension ahead of the group debuting, as well as ahead of his wife Marina Shafir being released by the company, some point earlier this year. There have been numerous NXT talent who have been taken off television and later reappeared that agreed to new deals in the mean time. We've been told Roderick Strong figures big into NXT's 2021 plans, especially their efforts to add marquee value to the Cruiserweight Title.

We're told Kushida vs. Roderick Strong is expected to get significant air time throughout the summer on NXT.
