A war has been waging online for some time now between “Arrow” star Stephen Amell and wrestler Stardust. What began as a playful back and forth on Twitter actually came to blows on WWE’s Monday Night Raw last week.
It’s been confirmed that Amell will in fact go toe-to-toe with Stardust and King Barrett (who coincidentally shares his name with a DC Comics villain) and featuring Adrian Neville as his ring partner on this Sunday’s WWE SummerSlam.
Amell took to Facebook last night to offer a tease for his appearance on SummerSlam, and revealed that he will in fact be bringing along his “Arrow” costume into the ring.
“Arrow” also stars Katie Cassidy as Dinah “Laurel” Lance, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, John Barrowman as Malcom Merlyn, with Paul Blackthorne as Detective Lance. The series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter.
After defeating his most formidable foe to date and riding off into the sunset with longtime flame Felicity Smoak, Oliver Queen (a.k.a. The Arrow) left Starling City with the hopes of beginning a new life. But will Oliver ever truly be able to leave behind his past as the Arrow, and, if so, what becomes of the team he has worked so hard to assemble? Will Diggle, Thea, and Laurel be left to continue Oliver’s crusade without him? And with Malcolm Merlyn having ascended to the top of the League of Assassins as the new Ra’s al Ghul, is anyone really safe? “Arrow” will premiere its fourth season on Wednesday, October 7 at 8:00pm ET/PT.
