Despite having impressed Triple H and others within WWE’s upper echelons, the Velveteen Dream has still not been called up to the main roster. At one point, Dream brazenly wore tights decorated with “Call Me Up Vince” in an effort to stand out and get his point across.
Main roster ambitions aside, at this point in time there’s no word on when we can even expect the Dream back on NXT TV.
It’s been reported that he did not work the recent TV tapings from NXT’s home in Full Sail University. He did, however, return to in-ring competition for the black and yellow brand over the weekend for NXT’s live events in Florida. Dream picked up victories over Kona Reeves and Luke Menzies.
Having finessed and improved during his time in NXT, the Velveteen Dream has been unsuccessful in his recent efforts for NXT gold. It’s a testament to the Dream’s charisma and character that these losses haven’t impeded his popularity or continued success.
His last televised matchup took place at TakeOver: War Games II over Survivor Series weekend in a loss to current NXT champion, Tomasso Ciampa.
Could this imply bigger plans for the Velveteen Dream in the future? With the Royal Rumble around the corner, could we be on the cusp of a main roster debut?
