After months of feuding on social media with WWE Superstar Stardust aka Cody Rhodes, ARROW star Stephen Amell made his WWE debut last night at SummerSlam, joining up with Neville to take on his newest foe and his partner, King Barrett.
Although Amell took a beating for most of the match, he demonstrated some impressive moves, and he and Neville were able to pick up the win against Stardust and Barrett. While Amell celebrated with his partner backstage, several of his fellow CW stars tweeted up a congratulatory storm, starting with co-star John Barrowman.
John Barrowman: “.@amellywood that was Fucking Brilliant. Well done!! WINNER!!! Ice that shoulder:! JB.”
Brandon Routh: “He was great. I’m exhausted just watching @amellywood take a beating, then dish it out! Well fought!”
Robbie Amell: “Woooooo!!!! Yeah buddy! @amellywood.”
Even Colin Donnell, who departed the cast after the first season, was in attendance at the Barclays Center to cheer his pal on, saying: “. @amellywood f’ing killed it at #SummerSlam!!! #Arrow #WWE.”
Amell himself took to Twitter posting this photo of his bruised back with the caption “Worth it.” Although the focus was on his match, Stephen shared some details backstage on the upcoming season of Arrow before the bout, adding that the world will be “bigger”, in part by “getting into mystical things”, as well as visiting stories “that fans of [the DC Comics series] Green Arrow: Year One are really going to appreciate.”
The new season of ARROW premieres Oct. 7 at 8PM on The CW.
