Velveteen Dream Takes a Shot at WWE Hall of Famers

Velveteen Dream has developed a reputation for being outspoken.  Last month, Velveteen Dream turned his Tweeter account “private” after he Tweeted the following ahead of NXT TakeOver: Phoenix.

“I Know My Worth. The past year I’ve created a special atmosphere at NXTTAKEOVER. Until WE* can come 2 an agreement as 2 what MY WORTH actually is, there won’t be any appearances or performances from “The Velveteen DREAM” or my likeness.”

Velveteen Dream did not wrestle at the most recent TakeOver.  He did have a couple of segments: walking into the building and sitting in the crowd.  Earlier this month, he won the WWE Worlds Collide Tournament to earn a title opportunity of his choice.  He challenged NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano on NXT this week.

Velveteen Dream made his Twitter account public again.  Earlier today, he responded to a question from WWE’s Instagram.  The Instagram post asked fans to “Pick A WWE Hall Of Famer Who Should Return To The Ring.”  The choices included Goldberg, Razor Ramon, Mark Henry, Ric Flair, Booker T, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.

Velveteen Dream Tweeted the following:

“NO. They Had Their Time. It’s Past Their Prime. If I wanna see these guys I’ll spend $9.99 on the NETWORK. Use What U Got b/c We’re More Than A Generation of Dreamers. WE ARE The DREAM Generation. And YES I am The One 2 Talk. #MoneyWhereTheMouthIs”

Velveteen Dream certainly isn’t intentionally trying to insult the WWE Hall of Famers.  He believes it is time for young wrestlers like himself to get a shot to prove themselves.  Many of Velveteen Dream’s fans have taken to social media to get behind the Dream.

Only time will tell how long it will take for Velveteen Dream to get a push to the main roster.  He has been a hit in NXT, and many would love to see him get a shot to prove his worth in WWE.
