World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has released another NXT Superstar: Velveteen Dream (real name Patrick Clark) today. Yesterday, the company announced a number of releases from the NXT brand including Alexander Wolfe, Jessamyn Duke and Vanessa Borne.
Velveteen Dream was discovered by WWE when he was just 19 years old when he was part of the company’s “Touch Enough” reality TV show. Clark was not the show’s winner, but he was still signed to a developmental contract after the show’s tapings ended. While with NXT, Velveteen Dream won the NXT North American Championship in 2019 and held the title a record of 231 days before he lost it to Roderick Strong.
