Paul Heyman sees big potential in one of WWE's latest recruits.
Speaking with Esquire Middle East, Heyman was asked about big-money matches for Roman Reigns and up-and-comers who could eventually challenge for that top spot. Heyman named Rick Steiner's son, Bronson, as someone with the ability to become a huge star for the next quarter-century. Here's what he said:
"Rick Steiner's son is in the current PC class. There's someone else that could truly become a huge star for the next 20 to 25 years. So there's a crop out there of hot talent that's ready to become the next generation of WrestleMania main events."
On February 24, Rechsteiner was confirmed as part of WWE's newest Performance Center class. Joining him are former IMPACT Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie, Shaun Ricker (formerly Eli Drake, currently LA Knight on NXT), offensive lineman Parker Boudreaux, EVOLVE standout Anthony Henry and many more.
Parker Boudreaux is someone who has gained some attention for his resemblance to Heyman's longtime client, Brock Lesnar. While he has some stiff competition to deal with, The Advocate believes that he has what it takes to navigate these waters. Here's what he said:
"Parker Boudreaux is a very interesting human being that took his education very seriously. He's not just a meathead. He's a six-foot-three, six-foot-four 300 pound athlete who has one hell of the head on his shoulders. So Parker Boudreaux is doing what everyone else does. He's starting from the bottom. He has reported to the WWE Performance Center. And he's got to work his way up to the top. There's a lot of roadblocks on the way. Do I think he can navigate them? Absolutely."
Paul Heyman can be seen every Friday night on SmackDown, serving as Special Council to The Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns. The Universal Champion will be in action at WWE Fastlane where he'll be defending his title versus Daniel Bryan.
Fightful will have live coverage of the event beginning at 3 PM PST on Sunday, March 21, 2021.
