After months of back and forth on social media, actor Stephen Amell and WWE Superstar Stardust finally met face to face inside the squared circle. As announced last week, the star of ‘Arrow’ appeared as the special guest star on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. As things tend to do on that show, things quickly escalated and as a result, the WWE Summerslam match that fans have been predicting for months has finally been made official.
After WWE’s resident superhero Neville defeated King Barrett in a one on one match, Stardust attacked the Man That Gravity Forgot. Following the beat down, the Prince of Dark Matter turned his attention to the Emerald Archer seated at ringside. Push came to shove in the most literal sense and Amell stormed the ring to get some revenge on the wrestler formerly known as Cody Rhodes. Check out the action unfold in the video below:
Following the altercation, Amell and Neville were confronted backstage by Triple H. Once it was established that the actor was fine, the WWE COO proceeded to chew out the guest star for the evening. But feeling unsatisfied with the upper management dealing with Stardust, Amell suggested that the Master of the Red Arrow team up with The CW’s Green Arrow for a match against the bizarre brawler and the 2015 King of the Ring at WWE Summerslam on Sunday, August 23rd. As you can see in this video, Hunter reluctantly agreed to the proposal:
WWE.com later confirmed that this match is happening in under two weeks at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, New York as part of an already stacked four-hour pay per view event. However, Amell took to his Twitter to confirm the tag team bout in his own way:

There you have it, folks. The villainous Stardust is finally taking on the vigilante of Starling City inside of a WWE ring. Although, as you could see from his agility displayed while entering the ring, Stephen Amell is not someone to take lightly. I mean, that salmon ladder is no easy, every day task for the common man. But we’ll see if the popular actor will down in the annals of WWE history as a memorable moment like “Rowdy” Roddy Piper vs. Mr. T at Wrestlemania 2 or as a flash in the pan attempt at capitalizing on a “relevant” celebrity such as Kevin Federline vs. John Cena back in 2007.
What do you think about Stephen Amell teaming up with Neville to face Stardust and King Barrett at this year’s WWE Summerslam? Will you be ordering the PPV (or better yet, subscribing to the WWE Network for only $9.99) later this month to see who comes out on top? And does anyone else think that the ‘Arrow’ star will come out in character as the Green Arrow for the match? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section.
