Former NXT North American Champion Velveteen Dream’s WWE career went downhill after he was accused of $exual harassment by an underage boy.

He was released from WWE in 2021. In 2022, Velveteen noted that he was never guilty and wants to return to WWE. However, things got worse for him in August of that year.

Velveteen (real name: Patrick Clark) was arrested on August 20th 2022 in Orlando, Florida on battery (bit and punched a gym employee) and trespassing charges. He pleaded not guilty to these charges. He was released after he posted $1,200 in bail. Then on August 26th, he was arrested again, this time for an out-of-state warrant on drug possession.

According to insider source BWE, WWE was very close to bringing Velveteen back before this drug incident happened.

Earlier this year, Velveteen issued an apology, where he specifically apologized to Triple H and Shawn Michaels. Here’s what he said:

“As you’ve probably seen or heard over the course of the last few years. I want to apologize for my behavior, both professionally and personally. I always preach to those closest to me about the power of accountability and responsibility, and I take full accountability for my behavior over the last 3 years of my life.

When narratives were written about me, it doesn’t matter. It didn’t matter what was written about me. It didn’t matter what was said about me; it doesn’t matter what’s on the internet about me. I was wrong, okay? And because of that, I need to apologize to a few people.

First, I want to apologize to the WWE organization. I want to apologize to the WWE organization for any unwanted attention and negative press that I brought to your brand and your product. I want to apologize to the WWE fans and the Velveteen Dream fans because when you hear the name Velveteen Dream, it should have only been spoken about in a productive and positive light.

Not the name Patrick Clark as another statistic of what happens when talent and opportunity meet immaturity. Okay, that’s not what you spend your hard-earned money on. It’s not what you invest your time and your money in. When you look on the TV, and you come to the shows, you should escape reality, not have to deal with mine. I want to apologize to the WWE and the fans.

I want to apologize to Paul Levesque. Paul, you are such an understanding and patient man and leader and getting the opportunity to work with you and to learn from you, I get the sense of what makes you who you are and how you’ve been able to handle the responsibility of being in the public light for such a long time. I want to apologize to you, Paul. I’m sorry.

Also, I want to say I’m sorry to Shawn Michaels. Shawn, it’s still beyond me that I’ve been having the opportunity in this lifetime to learn from you and to have your mentorship and guidance. And I apologize if you feel like you’ve wasted your time and your energy investing into me. You have not. I’m still a work in progress. I’m still learning. And I remember all the lessons that you’ve taught me. Shawn, I’m sorry.

I want to apologize to my family: my mom, my dad, my brother, my sister, my nieces, and my nephews. Because you may read things, you may hear about things, you may be confronted by people who you don’t know. And you might feel the need to explain yourselves on my behalf. I just want you to know that you do not have to do that ever.

No one should have to explain anything for Patrick Clark. No one should have to trend because of Patrick Clark; no one should have to ask, you know, to answer the questions. ‘Where is Patrick now? What did Patrick do? What happened with Patrick?’ That’s not your responsibility. And I don’t want you to feel burdened with that responsibility. That’s my responsibility, okay? And I apologize to you all for any energy — negative energy that has had to come your way because of me. Okay.

Again, I want to apologize to the fans and those in my professional and personal life that I’ve affected by my behavior. I’m sorry. I recognize that I was losing myself, and I apologize to anyone that I lost along the way. Anyone that I’ve upset or offended because of my behavior.

Man, I’m sorry, and I hope you all forgive me. Thank you.”
