'Arrow' Star Stephen Amell Emerges Victorious At WWE SummerSlam
'Arrow' Star Stephen Amell Emerges Victorious At WWE SummerSlam
For the past few weeks, the most interesting story going into WWE's SummerSlam event was definitely the tag team match that saw Arrow star Stephen Amell becoming the latest celebrity to step into the wrestling ring. Partnering up with the high-flying Neville, Amell was pit against Stardust, who has been laboring under the impression that Amell was, in fact, the real Green Arrow, Oliver Queen, with this whole "Stephen Amell" thing being a secret identity that fooled all of his viewers, and that his defeat of a superhero would allow him to take his place as pro wrestling's greatest supervillain. If that sounds a little complicated, it is, but it was also pretty great. Last night, the match finally happened, and as you might expect if you're even slightly familiar with how celebrity appearances work in WWE, Amell and Neville got the win in a match that saw Amell diving from the top rope to the outside on both of his opponents to set up the victory.

Well I certainly had that one wrong. Yesterday, when WWE teased a "face-to-face confrontation" between Arrow star Stephen Amell and Stardust, the former Tag Team Champion who has been recently styling himself as a cosmic supervillain, I assumed that we'd get a minor physical altercation that would set up a match between Stardust and another pro wrestler. That is, after all, the way celebrity appearances usually go. What we got was something way, way better.
