Just in case you haven’t been keeping up with the build-up to this slightly odd cross-promotional event, here’s some background: Arrow star Stephen Amell is a massive WWE fan, and recently they’ve allowed him some TV time to engage in a feud Stardust – the supervillian-like alter ego of Cody Rhodes.
The two have been getting in each other’s faces for a few weeks, and this Sunday at Summerslam they’ll finally go at it in the ring with a couple of tag team partners to ensure Amell doesn’t have the responsibly of carrying a full match.
Amell is expected to debut a new GREEN Arrow costume on the upcoming fourth season of the CW show, and in the video below he confirms that he’s at least bringing it to Summerslam, but the question is, will he actually wear it in the ring? All WWE Superstars have ring gear, and that outfit actually wouldn’t be any more OTT than most; but the idea of an actor dressing as his superhero character to wrestle a match is slightly hokey – even by WWE standards.
Anyways, you’ll have to tune in to Summerslam this Sunday to see if he dons the costume. As for Arrow season four, it will premiere on Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8 pm EST on The CW.
