Velveteen Dream returned to NXT this past Wednesday and many fans were upset given recent events.
Dream was accused by underage fans of sexual misconduct in April, which he denied, and again during the Speaking Out movement in mid-June, which he did not comment on, and was involved in a car accident in late June as well.
Dream had been off television since NXT TakeOver: In Your House on June 7.
"You know, in this day today, accusations are made and you take them all very seriously," Triple said. "You look into them the best you can, and you find out what is there and what isn't. In this situation, [Clark] was also involved in a car accident. That's what took him off TV. In the moment, all this other stuff happens and you look into it and you find that there is a situation that people bring to everyone's attention, you look into it and find that it is what it is and there's nothing there. Everything that we have done, we are comfortable with him continuing to do what he does and everything else. But he had a car accident. It stemmed down to people thought we removed him from TV for different reasons. We didn't. He was in a car accident. Once he was medically cleared to be able to return to the ring from his car accident, we continued forward the way we did. We looked into what was there and we didn't find anything."
Fightful Select reported on August 14 that there was heat on Dream's return saying, "there has long been significant heat on Velveteen Dream for behavioral issues and what is perceived as preferential treatment in multiple situations that would have had most anyone else fired."
Dream is scheduled to face Finn Balor on Wednesday with the winner moving on to NXT TakeOver XXX to compete in the ladder match for the vacant NXT North American Championship.
