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.
Patrick Clark 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.
As previously reported, Dream allegedly tried filming people in the bathroom during a party. While speaking to Steve Fall of NBC Sports Boston, EC3 claimed that WWE knew what Dream was doing.
I’m not one to share it and gossip. It was known. Talent was involved. It’s a wild tale and a lot of people did know. Even being part of it where I was kind of at the forefront of it because it was my home, taking it up the chain, being there, getting there, people sometimes don’t want the boat rocked from an office perspective. Sometimes, talent is doing well and drawing money, they’ll be protected. At the same time, I’m an adult male who does not need someone else to fight my battles. ‘This sucks. I don’t like it.’ Guys that were involved, ‘this happened.’ Ridicule from peers. No lesson was learned. Why it came up here and now, somebody asked. Nobody ever asked. I was asked about him and when it rains it pours.
If I truly forgive him, would I say it on a podcast, no, but somebody asked and I’m not going to lie. This was an issue that happened. The butterfly effect of it, in theory, working with him later, being concussed. Was that purposeful? It kind of ruined my run and kind of ruined my life in a sense. It put me in a bad spot because of the issues with the concussions that stemmed from it. That’s not to put the blame on it, but that’s my story and it’s the truth.”
Velveteen Dream’s arraignment was also set recently. WWE will also never hire Velveteen Dream again and this is something fans are glad about.
