Velveteen Dream’s back injury is said to be “pretty serious,” per Dave Meltzer. Unfortunately there’s no update on when he will return after being out of action since October.
Obviously there’s speculation on a surprise Royal Rumble appearance, but that would all depend on clearance from WWE’s doctors. The former NXT North American Champion has also been absent from Twitter in his time off.
The last update we had previously on his return was in November when it was reported that Dream had a setback. At the time, he was scheduled for re-evaluation on January 6th.
