The war between WWE wrestler Stardust (Cody Rhodes) and Arrow star Stephen Amell heated up on SyFyâ€™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 Amellâ€™s TV superhero alter-ego.
Watch the video and check out the Twitter banter below.
Stardust rambles about heroes and says that â€œEven the sharpest arrows, no matter what color (at which point he produces a green party favor), come crashing down!â€ Stardust shared the video to his Twitter, while Amell shared it to his Facebook page, with the response, â€œWatch your mouth about Green Arrows.â€ He also gave a warning to him on Twitter, of which Startdust responded.
This all started back on the May 25th episode of WWEâ€™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 Amellâ€™s face. Since then the two have been involved in a Twitter war, and rumors are this will all culminate at WWEâ€™s Summerslam in August, at the Barclayâ€™s Center in Brooklyn, New York.
