• NXT Locker Room Furious At Velveteen Dream’s Return
After being off TV for two months, Velveteen Dream returned to NXT this past Wednesday to compete in the Triple-Threat match for an opportunity in the North American Championship Ladder match at NXT TakeOver XXX.
Dream lost the match and turned heel in the process.
Fightful Select is reporting that NXT wrestlers aren’t happy about Dream’s return, as he was accused of sexually harassing and grooming minors online.
He already had heat with many wrestlers due to his behaviour backstage. Many other wrestlers see this as favouritism by WWE officials, as they think that any other person in Dream’s place would’ve been fired for such accusations.
WWE still hasn’t made a statement about the accusations against Dream.
