NXT TakeOver 31 was another fantastic show from the black and yellow brand. The incredible main event saw Finn Balor retain the NXT Championship against Kyle O' Reilly. Io Shirai successfully defended the NXT Women's Championship against Candice LeRae. Velveteen Dream was also on the card and he lost to KUSHIDA via submission. Triple H commented on Velveteen Dream during his Q & A session.
Velveteen Dream has had a controversial year so far which has included a car accident as well as accusations of Dream sending inappropriate texts to underage persons.
While speaking about Velveteen Dream, Triple H said that his "immaturity" got in the way of his professional life:
“Coming off of what was a bit of a rough year for Velveteen Dream, reorganizing himself, you know? Dream is one of those young guys that still hasn’t quite found his way yet of who he wants to be. I think sometimes that weighs on him. His immaturity in his life presents itself in his professional life and makes it difficult for him sometimes. H/T: Fightful
