The bad news continues. The SpeakOut movement has seen all kinds of wrestlers come under fire for various allegations of sexual misconduct. This has been the biggest story in wrestling for over a week now and it isn’t clear how much fallout there is going to be in the future. Some names have come up more than others, but now one of them has even more issues on his hands.
One of the names who faced allegations was the Velveteen Dream, who has been accused of sending inappropriate messages to minors, among other issues. This is not the first time in recent months that Dream has faced such accusations and there is a strong chance that his WWE career is in jeopardy. Now though, things are getting even worse for him, though not in the wrestling world.
According to Sean Ross Sapp, WWE has confirmed that Dream was involved in a car accident on Friday. There are no details about what happened, though Dream has been treated and released from the hospital. Dream last wrestled at Takeover: In Your House in a loss against Adam Cole. He appeared in a segment involving Dexter Lumis on the following NXT but has not been mentioned since.
WWE has confirmed to me that Velveteen Dream was in a car accident today, and has been released from the hospital.

It wouldn’t be the first crash in WWE history. Check out some of the company’s history with vehicles:
Opinion: I’m not sure where these charges are going to lead for Dream but they definitely do not sound good. WWE has already released three wrestlers over the entire SpeakOut situation, though none of them have been on Dream’s level. If that is what happens, Dream only has himself to blame and while it would be a major loss to WWE, it is better to get rid of him, as that kind of thing has no place anywhere.
