Stephen Amell is no stranger to fighting supervillains. For three seasons on The CW hit show Arrow, Amell has dealt with nefarious foes like Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), and Ra’s Al Ghul (Matt Nable). But he ain’t never met anyone like WWE superstar Stardust, aka Cody Rhodes. After months of warring on Twitter, Amell showed up as a guest star on Monday Night Raw in Seattle, Washington, to confront the painted face wrestler. By 10:30pm, Amell was in the ring having security pull him off Stardust, and soon the match was made for WWE’s mid-year blockbuster event, Summerslam; this year emanating from Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center.
Watch the confrontation video (around minute 1), and Amell get his match in the videos below.
Life is good for geeks! If you’re a joint comic book/pro wrestling geek like me, life is VERY good. News broke this week that Adam “Edge” Copeland will be joining the cast of The CW’s hit show The Flash for season 2 as Atom Smasher. This Atom Smasher will be a villain – different from his DC Comics counterpart. The character has super strength, and the ability to grow to enormous sizes. He will certainly be a match for Barry Allen (Grant Gustin).
Check out some of the tweets about this and the WWE below.
Things have gone pretty well for Stephen Amell lately. His hit CW show Arrow just finished a successful third season, and he was cast as Casey Jones in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel. But a new role has presented itself… professional wrestler! On the May 25th episode of WWE’s Monday Night Raw, wrestler Stardust, a heel (bad guy) was getting into the faces of several ringside fans. One was Amell, and a twitter war has since broken out between the two.
On Halloween night, pop culture icons The Muppets entered the ring of World Wrestling Entertainment for some action, entertainment, and a few laughs, but things might not have gone just how our friends suspected.
In this clip here below, which I find hilarious, Bunsen and Beaker are developing a special energy drink. But when Beaker is on his way to deliver the drink to comedy-oriented wrestler Santino Marella, the villainous Christian shows up and pours out the potion they were concocting and assaults the fuzzy lab assistant.
