Parker Boudreaux addresses Brock Lesnar comparisons

Often called Brock Lesnar’s lookalike or doppelganger, Parker Boudreaux might find it tough to break out by himself. Being compared to one of the greatest superstars of all-time puts a ton of pressure on his young shoulders. He could negate this by focusing on being his own self rather than the next ‘Beast Incarnate’.

The heavyweight took to Twitter to address the comparisons to the Beast Incarnate. He simply said, “I’m not the next Lesnar. I’m the first Parker Boudreaux.” 

This is probably a huge claim by the future WWE superstar, especially considering the surrounding buzz. Being compared to Lesnar has kept Boudreaux in the spotlight for a long time. The likes of Blake Christian, Christian Casanova, and even Bronson Rechsteiner, all signed WWE contracts, but aren’t receiving the attention Boudreaux is.

Fans were quick to acknowledge Boudreaux’s confidence. Putting an end to the ‘Brock Lesnar doppelganger’ fad is only beneficial to the youngster. Fans can only hope that better things come his way, and soon enough too.

WWE superstars are noticing the new signee

Several WWE superstars have noticed the spike in interest towards Parker Boudreaux. News of his signing was quite a celebratory moment, mostly because WWE found their next Brock Lesnar.

Matt Riddle has been wanting a match with Brock Lesnar for a really long time. The common UFC background added a layer of intrigue to that bout, and if Riddle vs Lesnar takes place, it is bound to be a gruesome match to watch. With Parker Boudreaux in, and the Beast out, Riddle has found a new partner to play with.

Former Universal Champion, Braun Strowman, took a shot at the former football player. A Strowman vs Boudreaux dream match would be off the charts, but ‘The Monster Among Men’ wanted to ensure that the youngster could lace up his boots first.
