Parker Boudreaux was amongst the security team assembled for last night's Kyle O'Reilly/Adam Cole face to face on WWE NXT.

The highly-touted prospect appeared in the background as O'Reilly and Cole met in the ring, with General Manager William Regal moderating. Boudreaux and the rest of the team even saw action towards the end, as Cole and O'Reilly leapt into a pull-apart brawl after making their TakeOver 36 match official, though nobody was put down.

Boudreaux's fellow Performance Center recruits Sean Tan, Feicheng Wang, Bronson Rechsteiner (Rick Steiner's son), Matrick Belton, Cal Bloom, Brutus Creed, and Julius Creed were also in the security lineup.


Boudreaux, 23, was signed by WWE in February. The former college football player gained significant traction for his resemblance to Brock Lesnar prior to this, even calling himself 'The Next Big Thing.' There's currently no word on when, exactly, he'll make his official debut as a named TV character.

Paul Heyman put Boudreaux over huge in January:-


Parker wasn't used in last week's Samoa Joe/Karrion Kross in-ring confrontation, which also featured a sizeable security team. A number of the other names listed above were, however.
