Another NXT prospect has made their WWE debut.

Parker Boudreaux debuted on tonight's episode of NXT, appearing in the crowd after Joe Gacy defeated Ikemen Jiro. Though Boudreaux wasn't identified by name, he's using the name "Harland" in WWE.

Boudreaux, who previously resembled Brock Lesnar, had his head shaved on NXT tonight. He was standing in the crowd as Gacy headed to the back after facing Jiro. Boudreaux ominously stared down Gacy.

Gacy is playing a woke heel character in NXT. He smiled at Boudreaux as Boudreaux stared at him.

Boudreaux is a former college football player who played offensive line for the University of Central Florida. Boudreaux was originally recruited to Notre Dame before transferring to UCF. Boudreaux left UCF to sign with WWE.

WWE.com wrote about Boudreaux when he reported to the Performance Center this February: "Parker Boudreaux of Winter Garden, Fla., stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 300 pounds. The big man was an offensive lineman for the University of Central Florida and has caught the eye of Paul Heyman on social media."
