Lio Rush became the NXT Cruiserweight Champion last night and it was a great way to kick off NXT’s two hour broadcast on the USA Network.
After Rush got backstage, he proudly held his title with one arm while he phoned home with the other. The Man Of The House called his son Dakari who was elated to see his father with the gold.
The new NXT Cruiserweight Champion tweeted out a video of this FaceTiming session with the following caption:
Lio Rush went through a lot when he was pulled from the WWE main roster, but now he’s back in NXT and has reached an important point in his redemption story. He’s taking on this new challenge head-on, but he couldn’t do it without his family at home.
