What "Superhero" match will WWE have at SummerSlam?

Published Add your comment

Stephen Amell facing Stardust at this year's SummerSlam has to be one of the most talked about matches in recent memory. 

Not only is this another celebrity ready to step inside the squared circle, but Stephen Amell is the Green Arrow, he is a superhero and he can fight! That being said, it is unlikely that WWE will allow him to step in the ring, at one of the biggest events of the year without rigorous training.  

So far, there have been no updates on Amell and what form of training WWE have given him and with just over two weeks left until SummerSlam, it is highly unlikely this match will be one-on-one.

Yes, Amell can fight, and he is in great shape after starring as The Green Arrow in Sky1's Arrow for the last three years, but can he pull of choreographed wrestling moves?

Can he sell moves from his opponent and put over the other person whilst also making sure his opponent is safe in the ring at all times? That is the kind of thing that can not be taught in two weeks.

The hope is that WWE have been training him and keeping it under wraps, but even if they have, could he pull off a one-on-one match at the Biggest Party of the Summer?


Instead of the advertised one-on-one match that many of the WWE Universe are looking forward to, it seems likely that it could infact be a tag team match.

There are not many celebrities that have walked into WWE and managed to take on a fully trained superstar one-on-one. Kevin Federline vs John Cena is one that springs to mind, but that was on an episode of Raw, not the second biggest pay-per-view of the year!

If it was to be a tag match, we could see Stardust's real life brother Goldust team with him to take on Neville and Green Arrow. With Goldust currently out injured, it is unknown what his current medical state is and if he will be available in a few weeks time. 

As well as this, WWE could also have Stardust vs Neville with Amell as the special guest referee or Amell in Neville's corner. 

There are many scenarios WWE could come up with so that Amell doesn't have to control an entire match on his debut. They could also allow him to, it depends on how well he has taken to wrestling and if he and Stardust can story-tell together. 


It seems all will become apparent this Monday night on the penultimate episode of Raw before SummerSlam after Stephen Amell tweeted to say that he will be in attendance. Could we finally see a showdown between the two "superheroes" next week on Raw?

Could we see another huge match announced? What kind of match will it be? Do you think Stephen Amell could hold his own in a match against Stardust? Use the comments section below to share your thoughts.
