WWE Hall Of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin is regarded as one of the best pro wrestlers to have ever competed inside the squared circle. Austin unexpectedly made a comeback to the ring at WrestleMania 38 in April, competing in the Night 1 No Holds Barred Match against Kevin Owens. Streaming service Peacock bought a Stone Cold Steve Austin cartoon last year. The streaming service is however delaying the release.

On Barstool’s KFC Radio this week, comedian Dan Soder detailed how he had pitched Peacock a “Stone Cold” Steve Austin cartoon, only to have the streaming service supposedly hold it for more than a year. Soder noted that the fact that Austin and he were both represented by the same agency led to their original pairing.

We’re going through some bullsh*t and right now, and hopefully me saying it publically will kind of push it through. Or it will just completely f*ck the deal, but at this point I don’t give a f*ck. During the pandemic, Dan St. Germain (a fellow comedian) and I wrote a show with ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin that was a cartoon, and we sold it to Peacock. But now the WWE and Peacock are bullsh*tting, it’s been 17 months on the sidelines. And I keep calling these motherf*ckhers being like, ‘this is going to be f*cking funny.’ And Stone Cold is completely on board, we developed the show with him, not the WWE.

Soder also teased if the show is about Austin. “I don’t want to give away too much, because that’s what we’re dealing with WWE right now. We’re kind of like, ‘don’t take our f*cking show and do it yourself because you’re going to make it f*cking corny.’ It’s dark and weird, that’s why Stone Cold liked it. He loves it, and the WWE was like, ‘well, we want to be creatively involved,’ and we’re like, ‘no, we want to write the show.’ And Peacock bought it because they liked the show. And it’s just been in gridlock.” 

The “Texas Rattlesnake” appreciated the concept when it was presented to Austin, he said, but when WWE got involved, things became more challenging. WWE and Peacock didn’t respond to Soder’s remarks, but keep checking back for additional information when it becomes available.
