Back in May, this long tale started when Amell was ringside at WWE’s Monday Night Raw at Nassau Coliseum, where Stardust hassled him before his match against fellow WWE wrestler Neville. Stardust lost, and seemed to blame Amell for it, despite his lack of doing anything. As the story progressed it seemed that Stardust was convinced that Amell was not just an actor who plays Green Arrow on TV, but actually Green Arrow himself. Stardust was convinced he was meant to be the greatest of super villains and needed an arch nemesis to make that come true. This would result in a social media war between the two that would last over two months.
Meanwhile, Stardust would continue an in-ring rivalry with the high-flyer Neville, aiming to make him the hero to Stardust’s super villain persona. Both rivalries intensified last night, when Amell was a special guest for Monday Night Raw.
Amell chose to take a ringside seat for Neville’s match against Bad News Barrett last night, and…well…take a look:
The story is a fun bit of cross-promotion between both CW’s Arrow and The WWE, but sadly in the age of social media and constant insight, a lot of people already knew about this development. Amell himself tried to mislead fans back in May after the first confrontation with Stardust, but apparently someone had let the cat out of the bag a bit early.
Lots of rumors circulating that I’m fighting @StardustWWE at Summerslam. Not true. Cody wants no piece of me.

It also must be a real dream come true for Amell, who has been a huge WWE fan since his childhood. It’s neat to see what becoming a television and comic book sensation can do for you. Here’s to hoping Amell takes the full dive and not only wrestles well, but wrestles in full Arrow garb.
