Former NXT Star Parker Boudreaux Makes Shock MLW Debut

Former NXT Star Parker Boudreaux Makes Shock MLW Debut WWE

It wasn’t that long ago that now former NXT star Parker Boudreaux, or as he was called in NXT, Harland, was being called the “next big thing” by Paul Heyman, and not just because he looks like Brock Lesnar’s son.

Unfortunately for Boudreaux, things didn’t quite work out in NXT, and he was released on April 29 earlier this year.

While we don’t know the exact events that led to his release, Dave Meltzer reported some felt Boudreaux wasn’t making the improvements they were hoping for, and that he was getting a reputation for being injured a lot.

Thankfully, this release has not spelled the end of his wrestling career, as he made his shock MLW debut at last night’s MLW Battle Riot IV show.

Boudreaux was the 40th entrant in the 40-person Battle Riot IV, and according to reports, he was met with “fake Brock Lesnar” chants from the fans.

Several former WWE stars were part of the Battle Riot match, including Karrion Kross (Killer Kross), Taya Valkyrie, Enzo Amore (NZO), Gangrel and Lince Dorado.

Parker Boudreaux is able to wrestle for any companies that want to book him, after his 30-day non-compete clause expired at the end of May 2022.
