WWE Hall of Famer thinks it is time for Velveteen Dream to get a second chance in wrestling

As previously noted, former WWE star Velveteen Dream (Patrick Clark) issued a public apology to Triple H and wrestling fans for his behavior in recent years. Dream also responded to accusations of being a “pedophile” and “groomer.”

During a virtual signing for K & S WrestleFest, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry was asked to put together a modern-day Nation of Domination faction. Henry brought up Dream…

“My wildcard would probably be Velveteen Dream, would be Patrick (Clark). I think it’s time for his second chance. A lot of people in the world of wrestling love the talent. We’re in a cancel culture that is justified as so. We need a cancel culture. But, at some point, you gotta have grace and forgiveness and you gotta see if that person is gonna bury themselves again because habitual line steppers, that’s exactly who they are. Once they get that second chance and they’re out, I ain’t cosigning for you no more. But, everybody needs their second chance. I think that would be my new Nation.”

“Looked great too (at the convention I was at). I saw him. A lot of people didn’t want to touch that and you know, I don’t get into the guilt or innocence. Even though, from what I’m understanding, there was a lot of confusion and judgment about male sexuality, which I’m not a politician and I’m not gonna cast judgment one way or the other but I do realize I’ve been lied on before, so I know what it feels like to not be able to defend yourself in the court of public opinion, and at some point, you gotta say, you know what? Whatever happened, happened. But I need to make a living and I need another chance and I’m begging the fans for a chance. That’s what I would do. I would throw myself on the mercy of the fans, and say give me another shot.” (quotes courtesy of PostWrestling.com)
