Kofi Kingston’s WWE Championship victory at WrestleMania 35 was a big moment for everyone at MetLife Stadium.
Obviously, it was a huge moment for Kingston and The New Day but the win also meant a lot to current and former WWE Superstars.
The celebration shown during the broadcast was real and there were others not seen on camera who were celebrating because Kingston is well-liked by everyone, including management and people in production.
Former WWE stars Shad Gaspard, JTG and MVP watched the match on television like most of us and they got emotional when the big moment happened.
“So proud and happy to share this moment with one of my brothas,” Gaspard said.
As you can see in the clip below, MVP starts tearing up immediately after Kingston was crowned champion.
