Why is there not already a thread for this guy?

I'm actually sort of ashamed i hadn't even noticed until now.

This guy is probably the MOST charismatic in the whole of WWE.

From his Prince-style gimmick to his excellent promos and in-ring psychology, i cant honestly believe he didnt make the list of people called up just after Wrestlemania.

He's been pretty much a stand out in every match hes had and people who arent so familiar with NXT need to watch clips of his feud with Aleister Black to see exactly what im talking about.

Dream v Ricochet will be happening at TakeOver - now if that isnt a DREAM match, then i dont know what is.

By the way - the above pun was 100% intended.

I almost made a thread for him on Friday when I found out there wasn't.

To me he seems like when he turns babyface he should go a bit low-key and try being a heart-throb kind of guy patterned after Lenny Kravitz. Maybe drop the headband, grow a 5 O'clock shadow, and only turn it up to 11 when he's supposed to be fired up and cutting a promo.



From what I've read the only reason he wasn't called up is because they didn't want to deplete the roster too much and so they figured they'd turn him into a mainstay over the next year so that he'll be a top star to come over next year rather than just one of a bunch and just an up-and-comer at that.

He'll be NXT champion before he leaves NXT now, so that's all for the better.

This guy is money. He and Ricochet tore the house down at Takeover, think it’s unlikely that anything else this year will beat it to match of the year in my view.

There needs to be a re-match which Velveteen Dream has to win. Ricochet is a great talent but Dream has the biggest upside here because he has way more charisma and mic skills and a gimmick that works and is over, plus Dream is a WWE homegrown talent.

Dream should have a run with the NXT title but I think he may be fast-tracked to the main roster so there may not be time.

The thing with Dream is that hes so good, he doesnt need the title in that sense and every feud he has ends up delivering world class matches.

The bad thing is, like with most things, his popularity will decline if he does not get some big wins because people will simply not believe in him and his gimmick is all about him being better than everyone else - so he really needs to back that up soon.

His style with Ricochet worked a treat and it was obvious from day 1 it was going to be a show stealer of a match.

Dream v Gargano, Dream v Adam Cole or Dream v Pete Dunne would all be excellent feuds going forward
