Former football star Parker Boudreaux became a viral sensation earlier this year after several fans compared to to Brock Lesnar, touting him as the ‘Next Big Thing.’ Even Paul Heyman heaped praise onto the 22-year-old star.
It all led to Boudreaux eventually signing a developmental deal with WWE a couple of weeks ago. Many fans are excited to see what Boudreaux would do in WWE and it seems a WWE Superstar thinks he has a bright future.
While being interviewed by Vincente Beltran of ViBe & Wrestling, Matt Riddle talked about possibly working with Boudreaux. He said that a match with Boudreaux is more realistic and that Riddle already had a conversation with him, stating that it went far better than it ever did with Brock Lesnar.
“It seems more realistic to get a match with Parker. I’ve seen Parker, talked to Parker, and the conversation – it went a lot better than it did with Brock. Parker is like a young kid, he is hungry, he wants to sink his teeth into this and he is making the right moves in the sense that he is presenting himself to the world properly and he seems hungry. He seems that he is trying to learn as fast as he can so he can be a part of the show as soon as he can. If you are hungry and you can bring something different to the table, you are going to be somebody in this sport and I think he brings all that.”
Boudreaux will be given extensive training on his way to becoming a WWE Superstar. We will have to see when he will be making his in-ring debut and how Boudreaux will fare in the company.
