Velveteen Dream defeated Finn Balor this week on WWE NXT when a ton of fans didn’t want him back on their television to begin with. Then #FireVelveteenDream popped up and went viral on social media.

Velveteen Dream defeated Finn Balor and cemented a spot at TakeOver: XXX. Barring some kind of last-minute angle that removes him, Dream is in the match. Some fans wanted to express their displeasure about this and they found a very clever way to do so.

Dream’s Wikipedia entry was edited and for a brief time it showed that his ring name is “R Kelly Jr.” Of course, we all know what R Kelly allegedly did. Dream didn’t allegedly do all of the same things, but it was apparently close enough for whoever edited his page.

The mods at Wikipedia switched Velveteen Dream’s page back to normal. This still stands as an example of why you shouldn’t upset the Internet Wrestling Community.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
