Emotional Booker T spotted crying on WWE NXT live show
NXT Deadline has been an emotional rollercoaster for Booker T.
The two-time WWE Hall of Famer, 57, broke down in tears after Roxanne Perez defeated Zoey Stark, Cora Jade, Kiana James and Indi Hartwell in the first Iron Survivor Challenge match.
Following Perez’s victory, SportsKeeda announced that she would likely fight Mandy Rose for a shot at the NXT Women’s Championship.
It seems all of that was too much for Booker T, who had trained Perez.
Laughing uncontrollably at first with a big, beaming smile, Booker T turned away as he appeared to shed a tear or two of joy.
And fans loved seeing those raw emotions from the former WCW Champion, with one comment, “Ol’ King @BookerT5x is just beyond happy for @roxanne_wwe! Gotta love him! #NXTDeadline”
Another commented: “Damn this is so beautiful”
As one said, ‘Guy must feel like a proud dad’
After Perez’s victory, Booker T tweeted: “Big up to @roxanne_wwe! #NXTDeadline”
And after retweeting that, she took aim at her potential future opponent, Rose.
It came after Rose tweeted: “Congratulation [baby bottle emoji] @roxanne_wwe too bad it takes A LOT more to take that baby girl title away from me [baby emoji] #IronSurvivor”
Perez quickly replied with: “Your deadline is coming soon grandma”
