WWE has released a number of Superstars over the last few years and in 2021 the company cut ties with former NXT North American Champion Velveteen Dream.

Recently Velveteen Dream, real name Patrick Clark, has been making headlines due to his legal troubles as he was arrested twice in the month of August. Clark has also seemingly been pushing for a WWE return as he started using the #BringBackVelveteenDream hashtag on social media.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that if there was ever a chance of Clark returning to the company it’s greatly decreased. It’s also being reported that people in WWE have said outright that Patrick Clark will never be brought back, but his name did surface this past week among people in the company.

Patrick Clark first started working with WWE when he joined the Tough Enough cast in 2015 and he went on to make his NXT debut in 2017. He was officially released from his contract in May of 2021.
