The WWF/WWE has had some type of developmental system for years now. Whether it was the USWA, Ohio Valley, Power Pro, Heartland, Deep South, Florida Championship Wrestling or NXT…many of the company’s top superstars got their start in at least one of them. While some developmental names like John Cena, Kurt Angle, Randy Orton, The Miz, Brock Lesnar and Charlotte Flair all made big stars of themselves by first training in developmental, others never got to see the light of day. This series will focus on those wrestlers…the ones that at some point were a lock to get called up to the main roster and never quite made it. What once was hot, suddenly became a “not” as a WWE superstar.

Cable Jones

Donald Moore was trained to become a pro wrestler by former ECW great Mikey Whipwreck. Moore stood 6 ft 5 inches tall and weighed a solid 300 pounds. He made his professional debut in 2000. He wrestled under the name of Lamar Braxton Porter and his finisher was called ‘The Porterhouse’ which was a swinging sideslam. Lamar Braxton Porter wrestled for various independent groups including Jersey All Pro Wrestling.

In March of 2010, Donald Moore was signed to a WWE developmental deal and assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) based in Tampa, Florida. His name was altered to ‘Cable Jones’ and he wrestled the likes of Titus O’Neil, Big E Langston and Damien Sandow. In November of 2010…just eight months into his contract…Moore was released by WWE.

Since his release, Donald Moore pursued his other occupation….chiropractic medicine. Dr. Donald Moore opened up his own practice called Synergy Pro Wellness. He currently resides in the New York area with his wife.

One thought on “Downed On The Farm: Top WWE Developmental Prospects That Never Made It…Part 32

  1. I recall that before he was released, he actually used his interest as a chiropractor for a short-lived gimmick as Dr. Cable Jones, a wrestling chiropractor. I think there’s a video of that online somewhere.
