Football player Parker Boudreaux, known for his uncanny physical resemblance to Brock Lesnar, has reportedly signed a WWE developmental deal.
PARKER BOUDREAUX HAS QUIT HIS UNIVERSITY FOOTBALL TEAM TO PURSUE A CAREER IN PRO WRESTLING
Boudreaux has previously said that he will, at one point, sign with a pro wrestling promotion, to try create a career in the industry. According to Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE has managed to acquire the promising talent by signing him to a developmental team.
The report says that the football player has quit the University Of Central Florida football team and will make his way to WWE in order to train for his new career path.
“Parker Boudreaux, the University of Central Florida football player we’ve written about a few times after Paul Heyman endorsed him, has quit the team and is going to pursue pro wrestling. He signed a developmental deal,” the report stated.
According to other reports, he was recently seen talking to WWE officials at the WWE Performance Center. He was also present during the January 20, 2021 episode of WWE NXT.
The pro wrestling community is high on the rookie and perhaps due to his resemblance to “The Beast Incarnate,” are already calling him the next big thing of pro wrestling. Incidentally, Brock Lesnar used the same moniker during his rookie years in WWE.
PAUL HEYMAN HAS HIGH HOPES FOR HIM
However, the fans are not the only one to hope on the rookie’s success. Paul Heyman, longtime manager of Brock Lesnar and a veteran of the industry, hopes highly on him. To a picture of the football player, Heyman reacted by calling him a special one, and maintaining that it is not just a prediction but a spoiler.
The rookie has reportedly been training with former WWE diva Eva Marie, who has been long suspected to getting ready for another return to the ring by training at the WWE Performance Center.
Brock Lesnar himself has been reportedly getting ready for another return to WWE at Wrestlemania. His opponent at the event, if he appears, is subject to guesses.
