WWE reportedly released NXT wrestler Velveteen Dream

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

WWE has released Patrick “Velveteen Dream” Clark from his contract, according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com. WWE has not officially announced the move as of this update.

Powell’s POV: Clark has not wrestled a match since the December 23, 2020 edition of NXT television. He was accused of inappropriate online behavior that included grooming an underage fan, though no legal charges were filed against him. I asked Paul Levesque for updates regarding Clark’s status during a pair of NXT media calls and was essentially told that he was still under contract. Obviously, it appears as though that is no longer the case. NXT released two referees and several wrestlers on Thursday without officially announcing those moves.

  1. Congratulations. The wrestling media got velveteen dream fired from his job. HHH probably realized that he could no longer use patrick clark on his show without the wrestling
    media/mob bringing up the allegations against Clark and why wwe is featuring an alleged real life “bad guy” on its fictional tv shows.

    • Yup, I’ll be wearing my Velveteen shirt with pride this weekend! #DreamOver

    • Am I supposed to feel guilty for asking for a comment regarding a wrestler who was accused of inappropriate online behavior by multiple parties? Hell, I was hoping that the company had conducted an investigation and could somehow prove that the allegations were untrue. Instead, we were basically given no comment style answers (if memory serves).

      • It is not a matter of feeling guilty. The bottom line is that HHH realized that he was going to have to address the allegations against Clark in future media sessions if he were to use Clark on the show. Social media such as twitter featured has tags such as “fire velveteen dream” each time HHH featured Clark on the NXT show.

        Clark’s alleged benefit to being on nxt’s roster was overridden by the cloud of real life controversy over his head.

    • Patrick Clark got himself fired.
