Steveson Signs with WWE

On the December 24th 2021 episode of 205 Live, Bobby Steveson made his debut under the ring name, Damon Kemp. At his debut, he lost to Andre Chase. But Kemp continued competing on NXT and 205 Live and picked up his first win over James Drake on 205 Live’s replacement show, NXT Level Up.

Damon Kemp also began making appearances on NXT UK, with victories over Danny Jones and a successful tag team match alongside Wolfgang. On the May 10, 2022 episode of NXT, Roderick Strong, leader of Diamond Mine, introduced Kemp to The Creed Brothers (Brutus & Julius Creed) as the newest member of the stable.

At a NXT Live Show on June 24th, Kemp and Roderick Strong (Diamond Mine) had their first tag team title match against champions, The Creed Brothers. The Diamond Mine were unsuccessful. A week later at NXT’s Great American Bash, Damon Kemp and Roderick Strong challenged for the NXT Tag Team titles again but were not victorious.

Diamond Mine’s Implosion

At Worlds Collide pay-per-view, Damon Kemp betrayed Diamond Mine. Kemp cost The Creed Brothers the NXT Tag Team Championship to Pretty Deadly in a fatal-four way elimination tag team title unification match after hitting Julius Creed with a steel chair. After avoiding The Creed’s wrath, Kemp once again cost the brothers the NXT Tag Titles two weeks later after he handcuffed Julius Creed to the steel cage. A furious Brutus vowed to beat Damon Kemp to a pulp so he agreed to give Brutus another opportunity, but with the stipulation Julius can beat him at the upcoming Halloween Havoc. If unsuccessful at beating Kempt, he must leave NXT.
