Stephen Amell Summerslam

Will Stephen Amell Enter the WWE SummerSlam Ring as Arrow?

It’s looking more and more to be a super showdown when Stephen Amell and WWE wrestler Neville take on the Arrow star’s social media nemesis, Stardust, and King Barrett in Sunday’s SummerSlam event.

In a final Facebook video posting before embarking on his cross-country flight to Brooklyn, where the annual WWE event will be held, Amell reveals some of the gear he is bringing along — including a familiar pair of boots and his shiny new Arrow Season 4 costume.

“You didn’t think I was coming without it, did you?” he smiles.

As Amell previously shared, T-shirts, hoodies and whatnot commemorating his SummerSlam clash with Stardust are available, to benefit the children’s hospice Emily’s House.

    I love how excited he is for this. Like a little kid. It’s infectious.

  2. Mr. Tran K says:

    Why would Stephen Amell wear a Toronto Blue Jays shirt as a wrestling attire? Can’t wait to see him teamed with Neville at WWE SummerSlam this Sunday. Hope he won’t pull a David Arquette.

    I won’t buy SummerSlam, but look forward to highlights from the match.

  4. Josh Emerson says:

    I’ll be watching! Getting SummerSlam and NXT Takeover the night before for $9.99 total is great.

    It looks like Amell will be the best celeb WWE has had in a while. I’m glad to see someone that’s actually excited to be there. It’ll be fun.

    It may be the lighting in his trailer, but I thought it looked more like his LoA El Sahim (sp?) costume than the new Arrow gear.

      I researched best I could and decided it’s the BACK of the new Arrow get-up, based on the metal studding and blend of leather and stretchy fabric. It’s certainly not an old Arrow suit.

      • Anon says:

        Whatever it is it’s a great cross promotion opportunity

        • Evan says:

          Sadly Anon, if there was going to be some real great cross over promotion ability, DC Comics would be screaming about this match to the high heavens everywhere. Most comic book fans are also very much into pro wrestling. They could use this to get a lot of wrestling fans who aren’t into comics to check them out.

          It’s an extremely missed opportunity.

          • DarkDefender says:

            Pretty sure if DC didn’t sanction Amell wearing the Green Arrow suit.. He would not be wearing the suit. They control the character not him. I am not a wrestling fan, but will probably watch the highlights and read about it on-line. But I’ll venture to say, if he is wearing the GA suit, he and Neville will win. Can’t imagine DC would allow him to agree to losing the match while wearing it.

          • Just a thought…
            If the new Spider man wasn’t a 14-year-old, how soon would Marvel put him in the WWE ring, specially since in most of the versions of Spider-Man he starts on a kind of WWE Ring?

  6. Noooo! I was hoping he’d be shirtless and sweaty!
