According to my understanding of the storyline in Diablo 2 his soulstone was not destroyed in Diablo 2. It was smashed against the head of your character at the end of Diablo 1. So from what we know Diablos soulstone was destroyed and so was Mephistos on the Hellforge. Baal had only half and thus needed to be imprisoned by Tal Rasha. That piece i believe is being held by Marius in the cutscenes. even with all of this it doesnt matter much because without the Worldstone they can come from Hell as they please
