WWE legend Triple H has revealed that Velveteen Dream's two-month absence from NXT had nothing to do with his sexual misconduct probe.
The 24-year-old, real name Patrick Clark, was accused of illegal social media behaviour involving underage fans back in April.
He denied the first allegations but is yet to comment on the second set that surfaced during the Speaking Out movement in June.
Dream was also involved in a serious car accident later that month and rushed to hospital but the severity of his injuries weren't disclosed.
The former Tough Enough star then made a surprise return to WWE television last Wednesday on NXT.
And WWE executive vice president Paul "Triple H" Levesque claimed Dream's two-month absence was due to the car accident.
He told CBS Sports: "You know, in this day today, accusations are made and you take them all very seriously.
"You look into them the best you can, and you find out what is there and what isn't. In this situation, [Clark] was also involved in a car accident.
It stemmed down to people thought we removed him from TV for different reasons. We didn't. He was in a car accident. We looked into what was there and we didn't find anything
"That's what took him off TV. In the moment, all this other stuff happens and you look into it and you find that there is a situation that people bring to everyone's attention, you look into it and find that it is what it is and there's nothing there.
"Everything that we have done, we are comfortable with him continuing to do what he does and everything else. But he had a car accident.
"It stemmed down to people thought we removed him from TV for different reasons. We didn't. He was in a car accident.
"Once he was medically cleared to be able to return to the ring from his car accident, we continued forward the way we did.
"We looked into what was there and we didn't find anything."
Dream had last appeared on WWE TV back at NXT TakeOver: In Your House on June 7 before featuring in the main event last week.
On Wednesday, the American will take on Finn Balor with the winner competing in NXT: TakeOver XXX the day before SummerSlam.
One of the two Superstars will be competing in the ladder match for the vacant NXT North American Championship.
