Report: Parker Boudreaux, Bayley Were Backstage At WWE NXT

Is WWE trying to sign the self-proclaimed Next Big Thing?

A couple of interesting names were backstage at last night's episode of NXT.

SmackDown Superstar Bayley tweeted an image of herself inside the Capitol Wrestling Center next to the Dusty Cup before NXT went on the air. She had previously asked to be added to the Women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, but she was not announced as one of the participants in the tournament. 

UCF offensive lineman Parker Boudreaux was also backstage at the Capitol Wrestling Center, according to Fightful Select. Boudreaux has a close resemblance to Brock Lesnar and he refers to himself as "The Next Big Thing," which is, of course, what Paul Heyman dubbed The Beast Incarnate in 2002. 

The exact reason Boudreaux was backstage at NXT is currently unknown, but he previously told Lucha Libre Online that he "will be joining a professional wrestling company."

WWE has reportedly had their eye on the college American football player and he was praised by Paul Heyman a couple of weeks ago on social media.
