EC3 vs. Velveteen Dream
What You Need To Know: NXT has its own mini-division of arrogant young men who are also extremely fit, possibly pansexual, and bordering somewhere between pro wrestling absurdity and straight-up avant garde weirdness. The top two faces in that division are EC3, the “top one percent” who is also hush hush the kayfabe nephew of the lady who used to run the competition, and Velveteen Dream, a former Tough Enough contestant who turned into a violent version of Prince and whispers shit directly into the camera. They are bizarre wrestling wizards who are mad at each other because they’re a lot alike, and because one threw the other into a pool one time.
