WWE: Stephen Amell scheduled to face Stardust at SummerSlam

Stephen Amell is perhaps best known for playing Oliver Queen, aka The Arrow on Sky1's show of the same name, but the self confessed WWE fan has been tweeting about the company for months.

The seeds were planted when Amell tweeted about WWE calling Sting a Vigilante, something that his character Mr Queen was referred to as throughout the first two seasons of the hit show. 

He tweeted: "So @WWE is calling Sting the vigilante? Umm guys? I've got your vigilante right here."

No Host

Rumours then circulated that the hooded hero could be the next star to guest host Raw, but this never came into fruition, but Amell did appear on Raw this Monday. 

He and Stardust had a brief back and forth on Twitter before his appearance where Stardust got in his face as he sat at ringside. It was obvious that this is what WWE were building towards because Amell left the ringside area after the match was over. 

Following Monday Night Raw, Stardust called out the star on the fallout show and Amell himself tweeted: "You tread carefully @StardustWWE -- Or I'll be back."

Amell then released details that he was prepared to work will WWE and even step in the ring, and finally today it is reported that Stardust and Stephen Amell will go one-on-one at Summerslam in August. 

It was reported by The Wrestling Observer and it is now said that WWE and Stephen Amell are discussing whether or not the star should wrestle as himself or as his alter ego. 

Amell or Arrow?

Given that Stardust himself is a strange character, it would make sense that Amell stepped in the ring with him in his Arrow attire and it would also make the star more recognisable to younger audiences. 

The show comes to the WWE Universe live on August 23rd from the Barclay's Centre in New York City and even though it is barely even June yet, this is a sign that WWE are planning big things for their biggest party of the Summer. 

They will also have to put Amell through rigorous training in a wrestling ring, because even though the star has learned how to stage fight on the set of Arrow, he doesn't actually know how to wrestle. It will be interesting to see how well WWE can train him in less than three months, and if this is just a one-off match or an on-going feud for the superstar formerly known as Cody Rhodes.
