Xavier Woods Discusses Failed WWE Cartoon Pitch

Xavier Woods is always thinking long-term when it comes to his career, looking for outside ventures such as G4 and UpUpDownDown.

Even before he got to WWE, Woods was looking to do non-wrestling things in the wrestling world.

"I met this fine fellow named Jonathan Davenport years ago when I was in developmental. He's an artist, he's worked for Pixar, Marvel, he's done everything. He was doing graphic novels at the time and I was working on a cartoon. When I worked at a previous company, I wrote out full cartoons, cranking it all out, and they didn't want it. Okay, whatever," Woods said on the Ringer Wrestling Show.

In WWE, Woods was more hopeful for his idea, but it still wasn't meant to be.

"In WWE, I'm in developmental, they say we're going to have the Network and they need original content, what do you have? I re-wrote the whole show for WWE, got Jonathan to draw up characters but it looks like old school Ninja Turtles. It's like Dolph Ziggler, AJ Lee, me, Kofi, a smattering of characters. Brought it to them and they said, 'Nah, we don't want it.' One day, my wrestling cartoon will drop," he said.

Davenport continues to work with New Day as a co-creator of Our Heroes Rock alongside Big E and Andreas Hale.
