“Children Of America,

I’m sorry. My heart breaks as news of ANOTHER shooting takes my timeline hostage. The Government, the Education system, and Law Enforcement continue 2 fail U. As I sit thinking of the entertainers like myself, who collect paychecks stained by the tears of so many discouraged Americans, I SAY SORRY.

We the Pop Cultural leaders of the current generation R failing U. We have a responsibility 2 speak and act in a manner that promotes POSITIVITY & HOPE.

Yet we play blind as if we can’t see anything past the bright lights we perform under.

We play deaf as if we can’t hear anything over the sounds of adulation and grandeur.

I Hear The Screams Of Tormented Souls and The Parade of Bullets flying through the air. I smell the fear of the children and It makes me weak.

Children R The Future and a lack of Future makes our nation weak.

I’M SO SORRY That We’ve Failed U.”


On a lighter note the Velveteen Dream teamed up with Ricochet on the latest episode of NXT TV to take on “The Leviathan” Lars Sullivan in a 'Handicap' match. Fightful did have coverage of that specific episode of NXT and to catch up on what transpired during the show, click here.
