During last week’s season finale of ‘Arrow’, Oliver Queen finally came face to face with Prometheus in one final showdown that is sure to have some major implications for Season Six. But offscreen, the actor behind The CW’s Emerald Archer recently revealed that he has been craving a different kind fight.
Back in 2015, Stephen Amell went from the DC Universe to the WWE Universe when he teamed with Neville to take on Stardust and King Barrett at WWE Summerslam. He dazzled fans and wrestlers alike with his high-flying offense and superhero-esque athleticism. And now he’s talking about doing it again.
While appearing at the Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in London, Amell shared that his desire to step into the squared circle once again has not subsided since Summerslam. And if it means that he would get to work with Cody Rhodes again, his next wrestling experience doesn’t even need to be with World Wrestling Entertainment:
“I would love to do something with wrestling again. I don’t know what that’s going to be. I think being with WWE would be really cool. I think that Cody who I worked with is doing such great stuff with Ring of Honor and New Japan. That would be cool. Um, but I need to get back to the ring one more time. Because the first time I was so… The second I stepped outside of the curtain, all of the moisture was zapped from my entire mouth. I was so nervous. So nervous that I literally forgot to get in the ring.”
The Green Arrow’s future in professional wrestling may not be set in stone just yet, but he’s certainly staying active. As viewers of NBC’s Red Nose Day saw, the actor raised some serious cash by running through the American Ninja Warrior course. Though it’s probably not the typical way to stay in ring shape, it certainly doesn’t hurt. You can see him showing off his impressive skills in the video below:
Do you think that we’ll to see Stephen Amell wrestle again anytime soon? And who do you think he should face if he were to have another match? Share your thoughts and theories in the comments.
