Finn Balor is scheduled to wrestle The Velveteen Dream tonight on WWE NXT but there is a cloud hanging over Dream’s involvement on the show.
As noted earlier, there is a lot of unhappiness among fans and many wrestlers over what some perceive as preferential treatment towards Dream (Patrick Clark).
During the NXT TakeOver: XXX conference call, Triple H said that WWE has “moved on” and they didn’t find anything during their investigation into allegations about him. This was said even though one of Dream’s accusers, Josh Fuller, said that WWE never reached out to him during their investigation.
Finn Balor posted the modified image below of himself next to a trash bag with the implication being that Dream (Patrick Clark) is trash. The match was actually taped last week.
The winner of this match will go on to the Five-Way Ladder Match at TakeOver: XXX that will crown a new North American Champion.
