The war between WWE wrestler Stardust (Cody Rhodes) and Arrow star Stephen Amell heated up on SyFy’s Thursday Night Smackdown last night. Stardust is currently having a string of matches with Neville, a high flying British wrestler who comes out wearing a cape, and who uses a top rope finishing move called the Red Arrow. In the video, Stardust appears on the screen to distract Neville, and sends a not-so-veiled threat to Amell’s TV superhero alter-ego.
Watch the video and check out the Twitter banter below.
Stardust rambles about heroes and says that “Even the sharpest arrows, no matter what color (at which point he produces a green party favor), come crashing down!” Stardust shared the video to his Twitter, while Amell shared it to his Facebook page, with the response, “Watch your mouth about Green Arrows.” He also gave a warning to him on Twitter, of which Startdust responded.
This all started back on the May 25th episode of WWE’s flagship show Monday Night Raw, when Amell was there as a guest with front row seats. When Stardust came out for a match, he got in Amell’s face. Since then the two have been involved in a Twitter war, and rumors are this will all culminate at WWE’s Summerslam in August, at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York.
