It is reported that Canyon Ceman emailed everyone in WWE at around 4:45 PM to deliver the news that Velveteen Dream was released. He is currently on a 30 day non-compete clause like everyone else who was released this week from NXT.


We will have to see if Velveteen Dream ends up in another pro wrestling company. There is a lot of baggage associated with his name. We invite you to click here for a full timeline of the allegations against him.

Keep checking back with Ringside News just in case there are any more releases today. We hope that this was the last of them, because the company’s excuse of “budget cuts” isn’t really holding much water with record profits rolling in.
