Velveteen Dream made his surprise return to WWE television this week after he was revealed to be the mystery participant in the final round of triple threat qualifiers. Dream couldn’t win his returning match but qualified for the second chance match against Finn Balor next week.
Dream has been missing in action from NXT for over two months, as allegations against him surfaced online.
Dream was accused of grooming minors, which became a huge talking point in the Internet Wrestling Community. Although Dream denied the accusations, WWE never put out any comment on the matter, instead decided to silently address the issue.
According to Fightful, NXT roster wasn’t informed about Dream’s return until the last moment, as he has tremendous heat backstage.
Several employees have complained about the preferential treatment handed out to the former North American Champion, and believe that any other star would’ve been fired immediately.
WWE let go of several NXT UK stars amid the #SpeakingOut movement recently but decided to keep Dream onboard.
This came as a major surprise to the fans, but WWE’s vision for Dream as the next big thing of the company could have contributed to the alleged preferential treatment.
The individual who accused Dream of wrongdoings, put out a statement this week, stating that WWE never came to him for any questions. This is highly suspicious, as WWE has not taken such things lightly in the past.
