During the last episode of NXT aired tonight, WWE wanted to stage the famous Diamond Mine of the pre-recorded segments, with the brand that initially it was not clear who it could be attributed to and above all it did not yet have a location well defined in the rings of the Stamford-based company.
Apparently, after weeks of rumors, false leads, false breaking news and much more, it would have emerged in the last hours that the Diamond Mine is a real stable and also has its components already established in the rings of the WWE yellow show, too.
if the mystery remains about one of the members, who at the moment still remains without a name.
