PWinsider have reported that WWE have today released Velveteen Dream. According to multiple reports, this has happened in the last hour or so.

Dream had been signed to WWE after being eliminated from the 2015 series of Tough Enough under a developmental contract and then debuted on NXT in 2017.
Dream had some classic matches during his time with NXT, with opponents such as Aleister Black, Roderick Strong, and Adam Cole. But his biggest success was in his capture of the NXT North American Championship from Johnny Gargano.

Last year during the "Speaking Out" movement, there were allegations of assault against Dream, and although nothing was proven, at least publicly, there are those who believe that his release is in some way connected to these events
We will bring you more on this as and when it happens.
