Velveteen Dream is one of the most charismatic Superstars, not only in NXT but in WWE as a whole.

#5 Velveteen Dream return update
Former NXT North American Champion Velveteen Dream has been out of action for a long time owing to a serious back injury. While initial rumors suggested that Dream might be able to make a comeback in early 2020, in time before the next NXT Takeover, new reports have suggested that there is no word on his return date.
There’s still no word on when Velveteen Dream will return and his back injury is “pretty serious.”
One of the most popular NXT Superstars, Dream has been out of action since October and even had to miss Survivor Series. He had reportedly been working injured for a long time before it became too much for him and he had to take time off.
This could be one of the reasons that his condition reportedly worsened over time leading to him being out of action for an indefinite period.
The 24-year-old is not just vibrant in his character but is also known to stir up trouble for himself at times. One such incident was when he came out dressed in trunks that stated: 'call me up Vince', hinting at wanting a move to the main roster.
