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..

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 on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T believed that Velveteen Dream could have had a hell of a career but doubts WWE will ever hire him again.

“No. I do not. [Brad Gilmore always says] that you could put yourself where something could happen and it could be bad. Sometimes, you can never find your way back from it and I think Velveteen Dream is going to be one of those guys that would’ve had a hell of a career if…That’s the end of that story.“


Velveteen Dream also blamed the #FireVelveteenDream trend on Twitter that ultimately ruined his career in NXT. Dream is never coming back and that is unlikely to ever change.
