Velveteen Dream is reportedly not cleared to compete after losing the North American Championship to Roderick Strong during NXT’s first live episode on USA Network.

WWE shared a video on Thursday of new digital host Matt Camp giving the NXT injury report following the brand’s big two-hour show. 

According to the video, Dream was seen “gingerly” walking around Full Sail last night after losing and apparently has lumbar pain in his back after the match. Camp claims Velveteen Dream will not be cleared until further evaluation.

Two additional Superstars were also listed as “not cleared” in the injury report video:

  • Kona Reeves, due to suffering a strike to the cheek that required five stitches in a dark match
  • Arturo Ruas, who is awaiting x-ray results on his fingers following his match against Pete Dunne
