Velveteen Dream made a name for himself in NXT, where he became one of their top stars thanks to his impressive character work and in-ring skills. However, he was also a subject of controversy thanks to all the allegations made against him. It seems he made an interesting claim recently as well.

He had a lot of stories about his name, and that caused #FireVelveteenDream to trend whenever he was on television. Due to this, he was released by the company last year as well, much to the rejoice of fans.

While speaking with Dishing Drama with Dana Wilkey, Velveteen Dream talked about his time in WWE and also about his accusations. Dream claimed that WWE didn’t want him to defend himself from the accusations.

“I wanted to address it. WWE didn’t even want to touch it. But I felt like if you’re going to be on TV, in this day and age, you have to at least shed some type of light on it. You don’t have to go into detail, but you should definitely address it. Because you do have that audience that is going to always want an answer.”


Velveteen Dream also blamed the #FireVelveteenDream trend on Twitter that ultimately ruined his career in NXT. We will have to wait and see if Dream will step back inside the squared circle or not.
