Triple H and NXT talent honor Dusty at start of NXT tapings

Last night at the start of the NXT tapings, Triple H along with everyone at NXT came out on stage to honor Dusty Rhodes who passed away at age 69 last week.

A very emotional Triple H spoke about how they lost a family member and how Dusty called everyone on stage his NXT kids. He said these were his family, his lifeblood, and gave everything he had for them.

Addressing the crowd, Triple H said, “If he called these guys and girls his NXT kids, then all of you would have been his NXT family.” He then told everyone at Full Sail University to stand up and honor Dusty Rhodes with a 10 bell salute.

Most on stage were crying as Triple H spoke and even he had trouble keeping it together at the beginning. You can see the video below.
