Patrick Clark, the former ‘Velveteen Dream’ in WWE, has responded to an allegation levied by EC3 (Michael Hutter) regarding an incident that Hutter alleged happened several years ago.
Hutter appeared on The Wrestling Outlaws on Sportskeeda over the past month and outlined an alleged incident where he claimed that Clark attempted to film people in the bathroom without their consent at a party at Hutter’s house that was attended by others on the roster when they were in NXT.
Clark has now responded to the allegation in an Instagram video and denies that he recorded anyone and gave additional details about what allegedly happened at this party: (Transcribed by Jeremy Lambert at Fightful.com):
EC3 has gone to the dirtsheets saying he had a party at his house one night, and if I’m correct, this is 2017, 2018. I’m not going to tell people who was at this party out of respect for our mutual friends, but one of our mutual friends is a former NXT talent that no longer works for WWE and the other person is a current Monday Night Raw talent who used to wrestle talent for NXT. EC3, you go out here, after I give you the best match you’ve ever had in your entire career. You got out here and, I’m tired of people throwing dirt on my name, you throw dirt on my name by saying I tried to record you in your bathroom. Let’s be honest. You’re leaving out a lot of details. What were we doing that night? What type of powder was on the table? Let’s be real. Let’s not leave out all the details. We were all drunk, you were pissy drunk because you were in your place. You were damn near passed out in the corner. You and your homegirl, whichever chick you were screwing at the time. The other two people, the mutual friends were there. I left my phone on the bathroom counter and because you were not sure of my sexuality at the time because of the character I played on TV and because we’re not friends in real life, at all. You try to accuse me of recording you in your own home. I went to our mutual friend who no longer works for the WWE, a former NXT talent, and I showed him my phone and had him go through my photos and videos, and my recently deleted, just to prove to you and the other person that was there, who I respect him and he has a job, I’m not going to put him out there. I had him prove to you that I was not recording you. Cocaine is a hell of a drug, EC3. Get your shit together. If anyone would like to go to my friends list and check out who follows me, EC3 is a follower of mine. If you thought that much of me that you couldn’t trust me, you definitely wouldn’t be following me on social media all these years later. You’re pathetic. Control that narrative, asshole
Clark was released by WWE in 2021.
