Velveteen Dream's First Post-WWE NXT Appearance Cancelled
Dream was advertised for an SWF Wrestling show on September 11
Velveteen Dream's first wrestling appearance since leaving WWE NXT has been cancelled less than two hours after it was initially announced.
Dream was released by WWE in May of this year, and had not wrestled for the promotion since facing Adam Cole in NXT in December 2020. The 25-year-old was accused by underage fans of inappropriate conduct in April 2020, which he denied, and again during the Speaking Out movement in mid-June, although he did not comment on this accusations.
SWF Wrestling announced on Wednesday evening that Velveteen Dream would be making his first appearance for a wrestling promotion since leaving WWE at their 'Home Sweet Home' event on September 11.
However, following significant backlash on social media, SWF confirmed less than two hours later that they had pulled Dream from their show.
SWF Owner Rob Fury issued a statement on social media, saying: "Tonight we announced Velveteen Dream would be appearing at our Home Sweet Home event. I believe any man can be slandered and have been through other situations in my life unrelated but untrue. After careful consideration, Dream has been removed."
Dream issued his own statement on his WWE release and allegations against him a few days after departing the promotion. You can read his response here.
