From NXT:

The Diamond Mine is ramping up business, and Roderick Strong extended an open challenge for any competitor ready to challenge their rise.

Over the weekend, Ikemen Jiro answered the call and let Strong know he’d see him in the ring Tuesday night.

After Kushida was deemed unable to compete for their NXT Cruiserweight Title Match, Strong has kept his eyes on the title. Malcolm Bivens has declared Strong the uncrowned NXT Cruiserweight Champion, as he awaits his showdown with The Time Splitter.

Will Jiro make Strong regret his open challenge?
