• Triple H Breaks Silence On Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Velveteen Dream
After being off TV for two months, Velveteen Dream returned to NXT last Wednesday to compete in the 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.
While speaking to CBS Sports, WWE EVP and NXT Head Booker, Triple H, revealed that WWE investigated the accusations against Dream, but didn’t find him guilty.
“You know, in this day today, accusations are made and you take them all very seriously. You look into them the best you can, and you find out what is there and what isn’t. In this situation, [Clark] was also involved in a car accident. That’s what took him off TV.
In the moment, all this other stuff happens and you look into it and you find that there is a situation that people bring to everyone’s attention, you look into it and find that it is what it is and there’s nothing there.
Everything that we have done, we are comfortable with him continuing to do what he does and everything else. But he had a car accident. It stemmed down to people thought we removed him from TV for different reasons. We didn’t. He was in a car accident.
Once he was medically cleared to be able to return to the ring from his car accident, we continued forward the way we did. We looked into what was there and we didn’t find anything.”
It should be noted that one of Dream’s accuser, Josh Fuller, claimed that WWE never contacted him for investigation.
