Parker Boudreaux on comparisons to Brock Lesnar
Parker Boudreaux is well aware of his striking resemblance to Brock Lesnar, who is one of the biggest stars in WWE history. While speaking to Lucha Libre Online, Parker Boudreaux had talked about how he feels about these comparisons.
"I think Brock Lesnar is a tremendous athlete, and while I do take it as a compliment to be told we look alike, I look forward to people getting to see my own unique identity and character in professional wrestling, as well as watch me be my own person. I’m one of a kind. The Next Big Thing," said Parker Boudreaux.
With Brock Lesnar being a part-time wrestler in WWE, it would be wise for the company to groom Parker into becoming the next dominant Superstar.
