Patrick Clark Jr, formerly known to NXT audiences and the WWE universe as the Velveteen Dream has effective imminently, release from his contract. This news has been confirmed from multiple sources including PWInsider and Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp. This major free agent recently got a top WWE NXT offer
The now ex-dream was a former NXT standout where he won the WWE NXT North American Championship and was a constant contender for the WWE NXT Championship. However, Dream’s run would be cut short due to allegations of sending perverse images to underage victims on social media platforms such as Instagram, after a user over on Reddit posted screenshots on what was apparently a naked Clark over on the professional wrestling subreddit r/SquaredCircle. It should be noted that Clark has since denied these allegations.
In Summer of last year, the now-released WWE star made more infamous headlines after it was revealed that new allegations came out that Clark sent an sexually-charged photo, as having indecent conversation with minors. These allegations took place during the ‘Speaking Out’ movement – which, similar to the #MeToo movement is an ongoing social movement that is against harassment and abuse in the world of professional wrestling and to empower people to tell their stories. WWE originally noted that after an investigation to these allegations, they ‘didn’t find anything’. As of this writing, Clark has not been charged with any actual crime.
Velveteen Dream has been released by WWE, I'm told
