During last night’s episode of NXT on the USA Network, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott debuted a new heel faction towards the end of his match with bitter rival Leon Ruff.
Other than Scott, none of the members of the new group is currently established NXT wrestlers, so some fans have been asking who “Swerve” has actually aligned himself with.
Isaiah “Swerve” Scott defeated Leon Ruff with the help of AJ Francis, a former NFL player who serves as the co-host of the A&E’s WWE Most Wanted Treasures show alongside Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
WWE recently filed to trademark the “Top Dolla” moniker, which is the nickname that AJ Francis has used previously, so some have speculated this will be part of his character moving forward.
The other male member of the group is Ashante “Thee” Adonis, who has appeared on NXT a few times over the last few months after signing with the company in 2018. His last match was on the April 23 episode of 205 Live.
For those who are unsure, the female member of the group is Briana Brady, who signed with WWE in 2019 after taking part in a tryout two years prior. Her last match was back at an NXT live event in March 2020.
As of right now, the plans that WWE has for the group are unknown. However, it’s not believed that this new faction has anything to do with the Diamond Mine group that NXT started airing vignettes for last week.
