Mark Henry On Velveteen Dream: I Think It’s Time For His Second Chance

Mark Henry believes that it’s time for Velveteen Dream to be given a second chance in the world of professional wrestling.

All Elite Wrestling‘s Mark Henry recently took part in a virtual signing for K & S WrestleFest. When asked to put together a modern-day Nation of Domination, Henry picked Powerhouse Hobbs, Omos, Carmelo Hayes, Bobby Lashley, and the wildcard pick of Velveteen Dream. Henry would go on to talk about how he believes Patrick Clark deserves a second chance in the industry.

“My wildcard would probably be Velveteen Dream, would be Patrick (Clark),” Mark Henry said. “I think it’s time for his second chance. A lot of people in the world of wrestling love the talent. We’re in a cancel culture that is justified as so. We need a cancel culture. But, at some point, you gotta have grace and forgiveness, and you gotta see if that person is gonna bury themselves again because habitual line steppers, that’s exactly who they are.

“Once they get that second chance and they’re out, I ain’t cosigning for you no more. But, everybody needs their second chance. I think that would be my new Nation. Looked great too (at the convention I was at). I saw him. A lot of people didn’t want to touch that, and you know, I don’t get into the guilt or innocence.

“Even though, from what I’m understanding, there was a lot of confusion and judgment about male sexuality, which I’m not a politician, and I’m not gonna cast judgment one way or the other, but I do realize I’ve been lied on before, so I know what it feels like to not be able to defend yourself in the court of public opinion.

“And at some point, you gotta say, you know what? Whatever happened, happened. But I need to make a living, and I need another chance, and I’m begging the fans for a chance. That’s what I would do. I would throw myself on the mercy of the fans, and say give me another shot.” [H/T: POST Wrestling]

Earlier this year, Patrick Clark posted a public apology to WWE and Triple H. A month later, Clark appeared unadvertised and competed at an independent wrestling show in Albany, New York. His appearance wasn’t well received by many fans online.
