The Creed Brothers are even more desperate to win the NXT Tag Team Titles after a huge stipulation was added to their NXT: In Your House match!
The Diamond Mine has been on the verge of fracture ever since Roderick Strong invited the Viking Raiders to NXT 2.0 as a test for the Creed Brothers. While the Creeds were able to defeat the Viking Raiders in their first bout together, they weren’t satisfied with the victory as Strong interfered in the match and they wanted to prove they could win on their own.
The brothers demanded a rematch, and this time found themselves falling to the former Raw Tag Team Champions when Roderick Strong and new member Damon Kemp interfered.
Last week, Roderick Strong was said to have an ankle injury that kept him out of his advertised match, and the Creeds weren’t happy with that explanation as they want Diamond Mine members to fight through injury. However, Strong and Kemp were in action against NXT Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly on the most recent episode of NXT. They were unsuccessful in their quest for victory, however, as they were distracted by interference from the Creeds.
Incensed, Roderick Strong delivered an ultimatum to the brothers backstage, declaring that if they lose their NXT Tag Team Title match against Pretty Deadly at NXT: In Your House, they’ll be thrown out of Diamond Mine.
Later in the show, fellow Diamond Mine member Ivy Nile was approached by Kiana James backstage, and James asked if she would still be talking to the Creeds after they’re defeated at In Your House. Ivy insisted that her teammates would win, and she later defeated Kiana in singles action on the same show. After Ivy’s victory, Pretty Deadly came out to talk trash to the Creeds, but the Creeds ran them off.
NXT: In Your House is set to take place on June 4th, 2022.
