Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are old news – the next Fight Of The Century is between ‘Arrow’ star Stephen Amell and WWE’s Stardust! Will these two finally face off at ‘Summer Slam’ or not? HollywoodLife.com has the scoop!
On the CW’s Arrow, Stephen Amell, 34, is used to facing super villains and criminals. However, his biggest rival is not from a comic book but from a wrestling ring! Stardust (aka Cody Rhodes, 29) and Stephen are on a collision course, set for SummerSlam! Will these two finally meet in the ring when the WWE rolls into the Barclays Center on Aug 23? HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE on whether or not this fight is going down!
Before we see Stephen take on Stardust at SummerSlam — on Aug 23 in Brooklyn, New York — Stephen needs to work out the fine details, as sources EXCLUSIVELY tell HollywoodLife.com that parts of “his CW contract may not allow him to do it.” Aww! No way!
“Basically he has certain clauses in his contract that [prevent] him from situations that might get him hurt,” the insider told HollywoodLife.com. “If he were to get injured, it is possible that the injury would alter the filming schedule [of Arrow] and that would be bad news for CW and their bottom line!”
Despite this concern by the CW for the star of their hit show, sources tell HollywoodLife.com that everyone is working hard to make the match happen and that it’s “still tentatively scheduled” to for SummerSlam.
If Stephen doesn’t sort out his contract in time to face Stardust at SummerSlam, will it be the end of their feud? We hope not, as it’s been entertaining! However, if the match doesn’t happen at SummerSlam, sources tell HollywoodLife.com that “they still want to do something together in the future and are trying their best to have it all work out.”
Stephen Amell Vs Stardust: A War Of Words
In the meantime, Stephen and Cody – we mean, Stardust – are keeping their feud alive by taking shots at each other over social media. On May 31, Stephen tweeted that he’s not facing Stardust because “Cody wants no piece of me.” Stardust, in response, taunted Stephen during a Jun 7 event in Pensacola, Florida, saying he knows Stephen’s biggest secret!
