Triple H On #FireVelveteenDream Trending

Speaking of Takeover XXX, The Velveteen Dream was trending for all the wrong reasons. #FireVelveteenDream was ranked high on Twitter for hours because of claims made against Dream.

People have come forward and said Dream contacted young boys and girls. He allegedly was grooming them and there was also mention of sending nude pictures.

WWE said they conducted an investigation and found nothing to support the accusations. Triple H already commented on the matter, but he was asked again during the post-show Q&A.

“I mean we’ve talked about this,” said Triple H. “We said our peace on it.”

”I understand people’s positions and their feelings of something that they’re really just seeing accusations online. Nothing that needs to be said more on it again.”

Here are just a few of the tweets regarding Dream working last night’s show.
