Parker Boudreaux Unveils New Ring Name In WWE

Parker Boudreaux aka Harland

Top NXT prospect Parker Boudreaux has revealed the ring name he will be using in WWE going forward.

The man who has been called the ‘Next Brock Lesnar’ signed with WWE amongst much fanfare back in February as part of the largest Performance Center class ever. Following his arrival, Roman Reigns’ Special Counsel Paul Heyman heaped praise on Boudreaux, saying that he believes he can navigate any roadblocks that stand between him and reaching the top of WWE.

Now, the former offensive lineman for the UCF Knights has taken to Twitter to unveil the ring name he will be going by in pursuit of that goal, ‘Gunnar Harland’.

“New name… Gunnar Harland”

Soon after revealing the new moniker, Boudreaux hinted that he might have his own version of Lesnar’s ‘Suplex City’ when he tweeted, “Welcome to GUNNERLAND.”

Since his signing, Parker Boudreaux has received support from several WWE Superstars. Once news of him joining WWE broke, the ‘Red Queen’ Eva Marie tweeted “It’s go time baby!!! Super pumped for you. LFG.”

Riddle has also been outspoken in his praise for the up and coming WWE Superstar, saying that he believed he was “the next big thing”, likely playing on the nickname Paul Heyman bestowed on Brock Lesnar when he debuted in WWE back in 2002.
