A 22-year old football player with an uncanny resemblance to Brock Lesnar has reportedly signed a contract with WWE.
According to the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Parker Boudreaux has signed a developmental deal with WWE.
Boudreaux reportedly quit the University of Central Football team to pursue a career as a professional wrestler. Boudreaux has been turning heads in the professional wrestling community for his impressive physique and his interest in the business.
At 6’4 and 301 pounds, Boudreaux has been compared to a young Brock Lesnar and has been calling himself “The Next Big Thing” and a “Paul Heyman Guy” on social media and interviews.
Boudreaux has been name-checked by legendary talent spotters Jim Ross and Gerald Brisco as being a potential wrestling star. He has also been endorsed by Heyman in a Tweet last month.
Two weeks ago, Fightful Select reported that Boudreaux was backstage during that week’s WWE NXT show and hinted that he had signed. He also appeared with former WWE superstar Eva Marie in what looks like a WWE Royal Rumble Viewing Party in Marie’s home.
Boudreaux was an offensive lineman at UCF but was sidelined last year due to a concussion. UCF has released the 2021 roster of their football team and Bourdreux is not on it.
