The man dubbed by many as the ‘Next Brock Lesnar’ Parker Boudreaux was pictured with former WWE star Eva Marie at a Royal Rumble viewing party.
Both figures have been linked with the WWE in recent weeks, with speculation on the return of ‘All Red Everything’ having run rife since October 2020.
A more recent report suggested that the former Total Divas star had indeed re-signed with the company and had been scheduled to return at Monday Night RAW’s Legends Night special, albeit this did not come to pass.
Boudreaux, who played Offensive Lineman for the UCF Knights, managed to catch the eye of one Paul Heyman earlier in the year, with ‘The Advocate’ predicting big things for the aspiring star.
His tweet is not a prediction. It’s a spoiler.

Boudreaux attended NXT tapings in January and although there has been no word on his potential signing, he clearly remains a figure of interest with WWE Producer Adam Pearce having reacted to the Rumble picture with Eva Marie.

In a recent interview with Lucha Libre Online, the 6-foot-4, 300 pounder commented on Brock Lesnar – a man to whom many comparisons have been made:
I think Brock Lesnar is a tremendous athlete and while I take it as a compliment to be told that we look alike, I hope people see my own identity and uniqueness in professional wrestling. As well as seeing me be my own person. I am unique.
Bodreaux concluded the interview by confirming his desire to join a pro wrestling company in the near future.
Whether or not that will be alongside Eva Marie remains to be seen, but the pair have certainly generated a buzz around the possibility.
