Former amateur champion, UFC champion, and WWE champion, Brock Lesnar, is a once-in-a-lifetime talent. He earned his nickname of the “next big thing” for excelling at just about every sport he’s ever suited up to play.
Standing at 6’4″ and tipping scales at 301-pound, offensive guard Parker Boudreaux of the University of Central Florida has been compared to Lesnar on numerous occasions.
Boudreaux is now apparently following in Lesnar’s footsteps, at least his professional wrestling footsteps, and signed a developmental deal with the WWE.
According to Dave Meltzer at the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Boudreaux notified the University of Central Florida of his intent to quit playing football to focus on his wrestling career.
Dubbing himself “the Next Big Thing,” Boudreaux suffered a concussion last year and missed most of last season, and was spotted with Eva Marie at a Royal Rumble viewing party.
Even Brock Lesnar’s personal advisor, Paul Heyman, has endorsed Boudreaux as being the real deal.
His tweet is not a prediction. It’s a spoiler.

The WWE is yet to confirm Boudreaux’s developmental deal.
