NXT standout Velveteen Dream took to Twitter following the announcement on Raw of several call-ups to the main roster and spoke out about his name not being amongst the six confirmed.
“It’s Not His (Vince’s) Call 2 Make. It’s URs. So let ur voice B heard . . . #CallDREAMUo@WWE Universe”
He then advised fans to “spam” WWE and NXT twitter accounts to see if the promotion really was listening to its audience as the McMahon Regime had promised on Raw.
He later added:
“RAW, SmackDown, NXT, NXTUK, Sesame Street. Doesn’t matter. If UR entertaining ur entertaining. I don’t need writers and I don’t need a lot of time. A superstar should bleed through ur TV. And not when someone’s producing it. Give Me The Red Light And It’s #DREAMOn Any Night”
When the tweets were later deleted it seemed likely they had been removed under the instructions of WWE management. In this week’s edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer confirmed that Dream “got in some hot water” for the tweets.
Whether this will have an impact on Dream’s main roster chances remains to be seen.
