Paul Heyman has heaped praise on “very interesting” Parker Boudreaux, three months after tweet about the Brock Lesnar lookalike whipped the internet into a frenzy.

While speaking with William Mullally of Esquire Middle East, Heyman would discuss the “very interesting human being” that is WWE’s new signing Parker Boudreaux, saying he’s more than a meathead.

“Parker Boudreaux is a very interesting human being that took his education very seriously. He’s not just a meathead. He’s a six foot three, six foot four, 300 pound athlete who has one hell of the head on his shoulders. So Parker Boudreaux is doing what everyone else does. He’s starting from the bottom. He has reported to the WWE Performance Center. And he’s got to work his way up to the top. There’s a lot of roadblocks on the way. Do I think he can navigate them? Absolutely.”

Meanwhile, Heyman also had praise for Bobby Steveson, and Bronson Rechsteiner – saying Boudreaux has some “stiff competition” to deal with.

“Bobby Steveson is in his class. Bobby Stevenson is from the University of Minnesota, Brock’s alumni. It’s a Bobby Steveson’s brother Gable Steveson has publicly declared his intention to either go to the Olympics UFC or WWE. And he’s the number one college wrestler on the face of the planet today.

“Rick Steiner’s son is in is in the current PC class. There’s someone else that could truly become a huge star for the next 20 to 25 years. So there’s a crop out there of hot talent that’s ready to become the next generation of WrestleMania main events. Parker Bordreaux has some very stiff competition to deal with.”

At the turn of the year, Paul Heyman, the Special Counsel of WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, has issued a “spoiler” that Parker Boudreaux would be in for a huge year in 2021, saying, “His tweet is not a prediction. It’s a spoiler.” Instructing readers to save the tweet for future reference.

“His tweet is not a prediction. It’s a spoiler. Save this #HustleTweet for future historical reference.

Former offensive lineman for the UCF Knights Parker Boudreaux would follow in the footsteps of Brock Lesnar by swapping the gridiron for the squared circle, signing with WWE and reporting to the Performance Center as part of the company’s largest single influx of talent to date.
