WWE NXT notes: Ted DiBiase appears, Diamond Mine teaser

- "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase made an appearance on tonight's NXT and interacted with Cameron Grimes.

There was a segment on tonight's show where Grimes went to a jewelry store and tried to buy the most expensive watch in the city. After Grimes purchased a watch from the store, DiBiase appeared next to Grimes and told him it's not a bad watch -- but it's not a million dollar watch. DiBiase showed Grimes his own watch and laughed in Grimes' face.

Grimes' character became extravagantly wealthy after investing in GameStop stock and purchasing Dogecoin. DiBiase had been referenced on NXT last week when Grimes said he attempted to buy an NFT of NBA player Ja Morant, but DiBiase came in and outbid him after the auction was over.

In February, Grimes tried to copy DiBiase's bit where he offers someone money to dribble a basketball and then kicks the ball away. After he failed to replicate the bit multiple times, Grimes got frustrated and said DiBiase isn't smarter than him.

DiBiase said during an appearance on Booker T's Hall of Fame podcast earlier this month that he was scheduled to go to the WWE Performance Center to do something involving Grimes: "As a matter of fact, I’m supposed to go down to the developmental center pretty soon. I think I’m gonna do something with that new guy, their new money guy, Cameron Grimes or something. I’m gonna have a little feud with him."

- A teaser for "Diamond Mine" also aired on tonight's NXT. The teaser showed footage of unidentified athletes working out at an MMA gym. "Thrive. Achieve. Succeed," "Push Beyond, "Pressure Makes Diamonds," "Pressure is Pleasure," "Train. Perform. Become," and "Fight. Win. Repeat" appeared on the screen during the teaser:

WWE had filed a trademark for "Diamond Mine" in December. This was the first teaser using the Diamond Mine name.
