Triple H Says WWE Investigated Accusations Against Velveteen Dream and Found Nothing


-- Triple H spoke with CBS Sports about the accusations that were levied against NXT star Velveteen Dream (real name Patrick Clark) and noted that the company investigated the sexual assault claims but found nothing. He also indicated that Dream's absence from TV was not related in any way to the investigation or the allegations but rather because the wrestler was involved in a car accident.

"You know, in this day today, accusations are made and you take them all very seriously. 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."
