According to comedian Dan Soder, Peacock has bought a cartoon series for WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin. The animation was written by Soder, as well as Dan Saint Germain.
Created during the COVID-19 pandemic, Soder alleges that both WWE and Peacock are stalling the series.
Stone Cold Steve Austin Cartoon Currently In Limbo
Making an appearance on “Barstool Radio” for an interview, Dan Soder put a spotlight on what’s been going on and made the claim that he’s been questioning each WWE and Peacock about the animated series for the past 17 months, trying to get a clue on when it could be dropped.
“Some bullsh*t right now and me saying publicly will kind of push it thorough, or I’ll just completely fuck the deal. But at this point, I don’t give a f**k. During the pandemic, Dan Saint Germain and I wrote a show with Stone Cold Steve Austin that was a cartoon, and we sold it to Peacock.
But now WWE and Peacock are bullshittin. It’s been 17 months on the sidelines, and I keep calling these motherf**kers, being like, ‘This is gonna be f**king funny,’ and Stone Cold is like way on board. We’ve developed the show with him, not with the WWE.
I used to get Stone Cold calling me. Dude, Stone Cold is in my phone, and he would call me….It’s dark and weird [the project]. That’s why Stone Cold liked it. He was like, ‘Y’all are funny as hell, man.’ He’s the f**king man. He would just be calling. ‘I was shooting sniper rifles, so what’s going on?’”
Here’s the story: @DanSoder teamed up with @steveaustinBSR to create a cartoon on @peacock. But bullshit with them & @WWE is holding it up Don’t know who/what is the reason it’s not happening but nobody is doing anything about it, bc there’s no pressure. So everyone tweet at them pic.twitter.com/8yaPLTmR3E

If the project ends up being released, it won’t be Stone Cold Steve Austin‘s first time in a cartoon, as he was previously featured in the Camp WWE program on the company’s WWE Network.
