EC3 spoke on the record regarding allegations against Patrick Clark a.k.a. Velveteen Dream regarding filming other performers without their consent.

EC3 (Michael Hutter) was interviewed by The Wrestling Outlaws on Sportskeeda and addressed an alleged incident that occurred at Hutter’s home during a party with other members of the roster when Hutter was still in NXT.

Hutter stated he discovered Clark’s phone positioned in the bathroom and was recording video when people were using the toilet.

He got arrested again. When’s he gonna get rehired? Probably not if that’s on his record, plus he has a lot of demons in the closet. Oh, what do you mean? I’m glad you asked, why not? Because in NXT there was always some speculation about him being a little off, but you welcome that. You can be friends. We had a party and it was at my place, and he came over because I’m being friendly and I’m top guy and I tried to welcome everybody into the thing. He left his phone in my bathroom with the camera on trying to capture people taking pisses, so there. How did I know? Because it’s my bathroom. When I walk in there and I see a phone selfie-style, propped up, on, filming, where if somebody is going to take a pee, they would have their phallus out urinating into the water. I’m not gonna lie to you, too, this was a late evening of partying, so maybe there were a few cocktails shared, who knows what everyone else was on. As we know, if he’ll do it in front of a cop, lord only knows what he’ll do behind a cop’s back.

I’m like, ‘What is going on? Am I tripping?’ I shouldn’t be because I don’t do drugs that would trip me out, so I’m like, ‘This is actually happening.’, “What I did was I took the phone, I stopped the recording, I made sure the pee pee video of my wee wee was deleted because that was happening in my home, by the way. So delete, put it back, turn it back on so it looked like it was still happening… ha ha, the big elaborate ruse… I walk out of my own bathroom because this is where I live, I sit on the couch, I go and I wait, and he goes right back in the bathroom. I go back in right after that… phone’s gone. I’m like, ‘I can’t believe this.’ Here’s the problem. Unnamed talents, that I will not name, in this moment in time were probably doing other things in that bathroom, so instead of a blatant confrontation, I just said, ‘Everybody get out, I’m going to bed, go, get out.’ Select people that were there, I informed of what happened. As I was informing them, that was where I would therefore be confronting on my next step, because I wanted them to know first before. What do you do with something like this? I’m an adult male who’s been violated in his own home, in a sense, and who knows what else is going on.

Clark was in the news recently after it was reported that the former NXT performer was arrested twice in August and booked on misdemeanor charges of battery and trespassing onto property following a warning.

There were several allegations against Clark during the Speaking Out movement in 2020 but he was not let go during that time by WWE. Clark later addressed the allegations as “baseless and untrue”.

Clark was released by WWE in May 2021.
