Anyone who's seen him in the ring knows that you do not want Stone Cold Steve Austin - the formidable Texas Rattlesnake - as your enemy, no matter how good you are with a bow. Because, regardless of the magic you can produce with your fingers, Austin's digits tend to produce an unanswerable response.

Unfortunately, Arrow and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 star Stephen Amell has found himself in Stone Cold's bad books after wrestling at SummerSlam. Watch Oliver Queen in action below and see if you take offense:

Can you tell what the Rattlesnake is so riled up about?

Stone Cold's concerns, voiced during his podcast, center on the potential danger of celebrities delegitimizing the sports entertainment show:

"I just don't like the celebrities coming in there, the squared circle, and being able to compete at any level with the guys in the business. You've got to protect some integrity of the business. I don't care what day and age, what year it is. It was what it was, but I just got a hard time seeing that kid come off with that crossbody on the top rope on two WWE guys down there."

He even went as far as to call the situation "embarrassing" for the professional wrestlers involved:

"So was it embarrassing? You're damn right it was, but for the wrong reasons and the reasons [were] bad booking. It was for a shoot embarrassing to those guys to have to go out there and do that with the actor guy involved, but that's on a shoot level, so it was an embarrassment to the booking and I felt bad for those guys because they were in that role."

And that's the bottom line, 'cause Stone Cold said so.

What do you think of Austin's complaints - is he right to be mad?
