Calling Parker Boudreaux the next Beast Incarnate is a mighty big claim. However, one look at the hulking youngster and you might mistake him for Lesnar himself.

At six foot five and 265 pounds, Parker is taller and lighter than Lesnar. Boudreaux played football for the University of Central Florida but is more inclined to wrestling.

The youngster has caught the attention of Matt Riddle. Riddle even took a shot at the actual Brock Lesnar.

“He looks just like Brock Lesnar but younger and doesn’t hate me enough to refuse a match with me yet,” said Riddle.

The former UFC fighter’s tweet has already grabbed the attention of Parker, who might seem keen on facing him.

If Riddle and Boudreaux face off down the line, it will surely be a must-see match. Parker should suplex Riddle just for the fun of it and should even pull out an F5 to pay tribute to the man he is potentially replacing.

As for Brock Lesnar, he is most welcome to return to WWE to put over his doppelganger, providing WWE fans with a memorable moment.
