5 WWE Superstars who were inspired by famous musicians
4: Velveteen Dream - Prince
One of the most popular stars in NXT today, the Dream has come a long way over the past few years.
First seen on the 2015 edition of Tough Enough, Patrick Clark impressed those in the company as well as fans with his genuine love for wrestling.
Despite coming up short, Clark would receive a WWE contract, and after an early trial period, now competes as the Velveteen Dream.
Embracing Prince's mannerisms and speech patterns, Dream is clearly a rip on the legendary star, who sadly passed away on April 21, 2016.
Now as NXT North American Champion, Dream is seen as one of the brand's most successful stars, with his bizarre mannerisms and unique offence (including his Purple Rainmaker finisher), rightly gaining the Superstar a legion of highly loyal fans.
