Former UCF Knights O-Lineman Parker Boudreaux has officially signed with the wrestling company AEW.

After the conclusion of the August 12 episode of AEW Rampage, where Boudreaux made his AEW TV debut by defeating Sonny Kiss, Tony Khan announced that he was “All Elite”, which means Boudreaux has signed with the company.

Boudreaux signed a developmental contract with WWE in February 2021 after Black and Gold Banneret first reported back on February 1st, 2021 that Boudreaux left the UCF Football team following the 2020 season.

He was renamed Harland, and made his debut on NXT in October.

He became the enforcer of wrestler Joe Gacy and he first wrestled on the December 14 episode of WWE NXT 2.0, but a few months later, the company released him in a wave of budget cuts.

Boudreaux would compete in the independent wrestling scene, appearing at MLW Battle Riot IV on June 23 before arriving at the AEW Dark tapings on July 16th.

Since then, he has been featured as a member of The TrustBusters alongside Ari Daivari and Slim J.

Boudreaux played right guard mainly at UCF from 2018-2020 and has always drawn comparisons to WWE superstar Brock Lesnar, with one of the people making that comparison coming from legendary wrestling broadcaster Jim Ross, who is currently a broadcaster for AEW.
