Velveteen Dream shoots on "Indy Guys"

WWE NXT Superstar The Velveteen Dream took to Twitter today and called out indie wrestlers who have joined the company.

It's worth noting that Dream did work for indie promotion Maryland Championship Wrestling before appearing on WWE Tough Enough in 2015. He later made appearances for Combat Zone Wrestling, World Xtreme Wrestling and other promotions.

No word yet on if this is an angle or if Dream is really lashing out, but the tweet could open the storyline door to feuds with talents such as Roderick Strong, Oney Lorcan, Adam Cole and Dream's former partner in MCW, Lio Rush, among others.

You can read Dream's full tweet below:

I'm beyond irritated by the Indy guys coming into NXT, taking up spots, living out their dreams, pretending to be actual talent. Or as WE put it "Superstars"

I'm homegrown talent and I breed success on my own terms. Reactions Prove It. Facts are Facts

If any one under contract has issue with it "The Dream" is easy to find.

This is a very interesting take from a guy that was developed and grew in the Performance Center. Besides a few talents like Strowman and Street Profits, there's not many success stories. It's interesting to see how one of them feels about the guys that get pushed faster due to their notoriety, which can be used as a counter-argument to his.

1. Issa work.

2. He worked on the indies, with Leo Rush no less who is the epitome of independent wrestlers.
