EC3 has made the astonishing claim that WWE knew about Velveteen Dream making explicit recordings of fellow Superstars without their consent.
Earlier in September, former WWE Superstar EC3 alleged that Velveteen Dream recorded fellow Superstars while they were using the bathroom. EC3 claimed that he discovered the videos during a party he was hosting at his home.
Now, during an interview with Steve Fall of NBC Sports Boston, the star has confirmed that WWE was aware of the existence of the recordings.
“I’m not one to share it and gossip. It was known. Talent was involved. It’s a wild tale and a lot of people did know.
“Even being part of it where I was kind of at the forefront of it because it was my home, taking it up the chain, being there, getting there, people sometimes don’t want the boat rocked from an office perspective.
“Sometimes, talent is doing well and drawing money, they’ll be protected. At the same time, I’m an adult male who does not need someone else to fight my battles. ‘This sucks. I don’t like it.’ Guys that were involved, ‘this happened.’
“Ridicule from peers. No lesson was learned. Why it came up here and now, somebody asked. Nobody ever asked. I was asked about him and when it rains it pours.”
EC3 also spoke on the concussion that he suffered during a match with Velveteen Dream not long after the incident.
“If I truly forgive him, would I say it on a podcast, no, but somebody asked and I’m not going to lie. This was an issue that happened.
“The butterfly effect of it, in theory, working with him later, being concussed. Was that purposeful? It kind of ruined my run and kind of ruined my life in a sense.
“It put me in a bad spot because of the issues with the concussions that stemmed from it. That’s not to put the blame on it, but that’s my story and it’s the truth.”
Velveteen Dream – real name Patrick Clark – was released by WWE in May 2021. At that time, Clark was facing accusations of serious sexual misconduct with it being alleged that he had sent explicit photos of himself to minors. Clark denied the allegations.
In recent weeks, the controversial star has been arrested on a number of occasions for a series of incidents. One of these saw him involved in a verbal and subsequently physical altercation with a gym employee in which he seemingly bit the other man.
