Patrick Clark, who wrestles as Velveteen Dream, issued a statement on his Twitter page that made his status with WWE seem to be in question. “I Know My Worth,” Clark wrote. “The past year I’ve created a special atmosphere at NXTTAKEOVER. Until WE* can come 2 an agreement as 2 what MY WORTH actually is, there won’t be any appearances or performances from ‘The Velveteen DREAM’ or my likeness.”
Powell’s POV: I guess we can thank All Elite Wrestling for making this an interesting tweet. Had it not been for AEW, I would have simply assumed that Clark’s tweet was storyline fodder or Clark having some online fun. And perhaps that’s what it is, but the arrival of AEW has provided many pro wrestlers with leverage they never had before now. So whether this is work or shoot by Clark, it’s a lot more interesting than it would have been last year at this time. For what it’s worth, Dream is not advertised for NXT Takeover: Phoenix.
