Last updated

In a turn of events that has sparked considerable interest among wrestling fans, AEW’s Parker Boudreaux, known for his impressive physique and wrestling prowess, has made a backstage appearance at AEW Dynamite after a prolonged absence of over nine months.

This unexpected development occurred during the “Homecoming” edition of “Dynamite,” hosted at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida, according to a new report from Fightful Select.

AEW News: The Journey of Parker Boudreaux

Parker Boudreaux, a former WWE star, joined AEW in August 2022, a few months after his departure from WWE.

His entry into AEW was met with enthusiasm, partly due to his striking resemblance to Brock Lesnar and his formidable background as a collegiate football player.

However, Boudreaux’s journey in AEW has been somewhat truncated due to an injury, with his last in-ring appearance dating back to March 2023 on an episode of AEW Rampage.

The Mogul Affiliates Era

During his time in AEW, Boudreaux was a part of the Mogul Affiliates faction, later renamed Mogul Embassy. This group included notable wrestlers like Swerve Strickland and Trench.

However, Trench left the promotion last year after his contract expired, and recent reports suggest that Boudreaux is no longer associated with this faction.

AEW News: The Future for Boudreaux in AEW

While Boudreaux’s backstage presence at Dynamite has certainly raised eyebrows, there are currently no updates regarding his future plans in AEW.

His appearance was reportedly for meeting friends, leaving fans speculating about his potential return to the ring. At 25 years old, Boudreaux still has a promising career ahead in professional wrestling, provided he recovers fully from his injury.
