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:

Last night’s win was for the #NXTUniverse and most importantly, my family. Had to FaceTime my son Dakari, I brought home the gold son. #ThankYou to those who have and continue to support me. #MOTH

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.
