Stephen Amell Wrestling In SummerSlam Against WWE Superstar Stardust
“Steven is looking to get in the ring for the WWE and the match looks like it will take place at SummerSlam in NYC,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Stephen, who is a huge wrestling buff, got the attention of pro-fighter Stardust, when he tweeted that he would be present at the WWE star’s big match with Neville on May 27. Stephen and Stardust got in a friendly tiff on Twitter, where the wrestler insisted that Stephen is putting up a front as “just an actor,” when he knows the 34-year-old is actually his comic book character, Arrow. So funny!

“The WWE and Stephen are deciding if he should wrestle as himself or Arrow, in the next few weeks that will be answered but what can be answered now is that he will definitely have a match against WWE Superstar Stardust,” the insider confirms. Raise your hand if you’re excited to see this battle go down!
It’s Always Been Stephen Amell’s Dream To Wrestle For The WWE
While we never condone fighting, this is a bout we can definitely stand behind! Why? Because it’s always been a goal of Stephen’s to wrestle for the WWE. Back in September 2014, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 star took to his official Facebook page to express how bad he wanted to get in on the action.
“Hey WWE: How do I host Monday Night Raw? I’ll wrestle and everything. #AmellGetsRaw,” he wrote to his 3.7 million followers. Looks like the wrestling gods have finally answered Stephen’s prayer — and ours!
