Velveteen Dream warned Roderick Strong
NXT North American Champion Velveteen Dream was hanging on a couch that is pushed out to the stage. Dream showed off some of his merchandise and list off their prices. Then he said retaining his title at TakeOver by pinning Pete Dunne is priceless. He said it could be one man, two men, or the entire locker room; it doesn’t matter. Dream said he’ll always be on top and called out Roderick Strong. The Champion asked Strong if he wants a match, he better show Dream an experience he’s never seen before. Otherwise, it will be “dream over” for Strong.
