• RAW Wrestler Makes The Call To ‘Save The Children’ After Allegations Against Velveteen Dream
After being off TV for two months, Velveteen Dream returned to NXT last Wednesday to compete in a Triple Threat match for an opportunity in the North American Championship Ladder match at NXT TakeOver XXX.
Many people have been questioning Dream’s return and want WWE to issue a statement on it. WWE EVP and NXT Head Booker, Triple H, revealed on Monday that Dream is innocent and the only reason he was off TV was because of the car accident he suffered back in June (tap here to read Triple H’s full statement).
As we noted earlier, many NXT wrestlers aren’t happy with Dream’s return despite the strong allegations against him.
RAW wrestler Nia Jax also doesn’t seem like a fan of Dream, as she dropped cryptic messages for him on Instagram after he was labelled innocent by Triple H.
Soon after the news broke, she uploaded a story on Instagram, which said:
“ZERO F*CKS GIVEN
She also commented with a number of clown emojis on a post, which read that Dream wasn’t found guilty of anything.
