Roderick Strong Sees Diamond Mine Potential In Bronson Rechsteiner

After "resigning" from NXT following Undisputed ERA splitting, Roderick Strong returned as the leader of Diamond Mine on the June 22 episode of NXT.

Diamond Mine originally consisted of Strong, Malcolm Bivens, Tyler Rust, and Hachiman, though Rust was released by WWE on August 6.

Speaking to Planeta Wrestling, Strong gave his thoughts on potential Diamond Mine members.

"The general idea with Diamond Mine is to make it a team and have as many members as possible. Starting with people with no professional wrestling experience and Independent wrestling experience but bringing their background from a martial art to add to the team influence and the way we work. There's a lot of potential. People we're looking at...there is the Creed brothers [Brutus & Julius Creed, formerly The Kasper Brothers] in developmental, they just started in the last eight months and are very talented with amateur wrestling backgrounds. Rick Steiner's son [Bronson Rechsteiner], a talent who hasn't been seen. Aside from capitalizing and winning as many championships as I possibly can, it's to educate the future talent and get guys around me that are really hungry and keep myself motivated. Guys like that weren't as high level in their sport as they were unless they were special. I feel like I'm something special and Diamond Mine is special. There are a lot of possibilities and I'd like to grab a couple of younger inexperienced guys to bring them into the pro wrestling world the right way," he said.

Strong is set to challenge Kushida for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship on Tuesday's NXT.

Fightful will have live coverage of NXT beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
