Velveteen Dream had a solid run 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 because of 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.
Velveteen Dream has also gotten into trouble with the law recently. Dream was also arrested after getting into a physical altercation at the gym while he was on probation.
According to Fightful’s paywall, WWE has no interest in bringing Dream back to the promotion, with one source even telling Fightful that a return would be a “public relations nightmare.
Even before his two arrests in August, WWE sources indicated to Fightful they had no desire to bring Velveteen Dream back. One source even said it would be a “public relations nightmare” that the new regime wasn’t interested in.
By the time Velveteen Dream stopped appearing on NXT TV, he had significant heat within the NXT locker room, we’re told. Completely separate of that, he’d become what one NXT coach had said was a “headache,” and was talked to several times about unusual behavior in general at the Performance Center.
Velveteen Dream was also quietly suspended by WWE for cocaine consumption. We’ll have to see what’s next for Velveteen Dream, but he’s not welcome back in WWE ever again.
