Serpentico vs. Parker Boudreaux

Serpentico looks to try to rebuild momentum on Dark, which the last time he was on, he picked up a win over Vary Morales. Unfortunately, he seems to have drawn the short stick as he faces debuting powerhouse Parker Boudreaux on AEW Dark. Better known as Harland to wrestling fans from his run in NXT 2.0, Boudreaux did not live up to the high expectations those in the WWE office had for him.

Boudreaux was recruited mainly due to his insane athleticism and imposing look, and many pegged him as a potential monster on the levels of Brock Lesnar. It would be hard for anyone to live up to that, but the former UCF standout still has tremendous potential, given his clear athletic ability. At twenty-four years old, he has plenty of time to learn too.

Now, getting down to the in-ring aspect, Serpentico being the veteran he is, might pull it off. I do not see that happening, as Boudreaux’s power-based offense has repeatedly proven to be one Serpentico struggles with. Regardless of the outcome, expect to see more of Boudreaux, and be sure to tune in to see all the phenomenal action!
