This week on NXT, Velveteen Dream made his surprise return after weeks of absence. The former North American Champion was one of the many wrestlers accused of sexual harassment during the Speaking Out Movement in June.
Reports circulating online suggested that Dream’s WWE release was coming soon. However, Dream ended up resurfacing in the company this week at NXT.
Josh Fuller was one of the people who had accused Dream of grooming and predatory behavior. Fuller took to his Twitter to react to Dream’s return and voiced out his frustrations in a series of tweets.
It’s a really sh*tty feeling that I feel like I can’t say the things I want to about everything because of fear over my wrestling career. That shouldn’t be okay.
In retrospect I’m glad I didn’t share things anonymously because it wouldn’t have had the same impact but the paranoia that comes with everything really f*ckin sucks
I’m doing okay though, I’m just really really mad that this sh*t’s just being tolerated and trying to be swept under the rug like it never happened.
The only things really pissing me off from social media are the people claiming that it was clearly investigated when there’s no proof or statement that ever was the case. Myself or anyone else involved weren’t contacted by anybody to my knowledge.
And also the people trying to make this like an AEW vs NXT thing look real dumb lmao miss me with that sh*t. Bad stuff is still bad, stop comparing situations to each other.
Fuller went on to respond to people who believe that he is doing these things for “clout”. He said that he’s not gaining anything from doing this rather, he has a lot to lose in this case.
ALSO anyone claiming I’m coming forward about things for clout, I don’t understand the logic behind that whatsoever. I have literally no personal gain and everything to lose by speaking up about things.
My morals come before wrestling and they always will. This is way bigger than me.
Fuller ended his rant by saying that he didn’t choose to speak out on this matter for himself but for the other kids that Dream has allegedly harassed. He said that people should feel sorry for the other victims and not him.
I’m not sure if I’ll keep rambling about it but I just want to say above anything, I never chose to speak out because of myself. It was completely over the kids he sexually harassed and the fact that the internet tried to turn them into the bad people. Be sorry for them, not me.
Velveteen Dream is set to face Finn Balor next week on NXT in a last chance match. The winner will get in the ladder match at NXT TakeOver: XXX for the vacant NXT North American Title.
