For weeks now, WWE superstar Cody Rhodes, better known as Stardust, has been taunting Arrow star Stephen Amell. The two had engaged in a Twitter war for a while, with Stardust calling for Amell and fellow WWE superstar Neville to “be his hero.”
After all of the back and forth on social media and weeks of Stardust dropping Arrow references on TV, Amell showed up to Monday Night Raw last night as a “guest”, taking a seat at ringside. During Neville’s match with King Barrett, Stardust decided to pay the Emerald Archer a visit, delivering a cheap shot before sliding into the ring to attack Neville. Amell wouldn’t take that lying down as he jumped the barricade and leapt into the ring to pounce on Stardust.
WWE security broke up the action quickly and Amell was brought backstage. There, he met with WWE COO Triple H and demanded he make a match for him at the WWE’s upcoming Pay Per View: SummerSlam.
After some debate, Triple H reluctantly agreed to make the match. That means on Sunday, Aug. 23rd, WWE SummerSlam will feature Barrett and Stardust in a tag team match against Neville and The Green Arrow himself. We will See Oliver Queen step into the ring and put all of his training to work against the WWE’s own super villain, and to be completely honest...I’m excited about it!
