The eighth and final season of Arrow is going on with Crisis of Infinite Earths just around the corner but the superhero star Stephen Amell has found time to make a return to WWE by appearing on WWE Backstage.
Amell will be appearing on Promo School on Fox Sports 1 this upcoming Tuesday, possibly to promote the upcoming sixth annual Arrowverse crossover event. The WWE on FOX Twitter account posted the following:
“BREAKING: The star of @CW_Arrow, and former SummerSlam competitor, @StephenAmell will go to ‘Promo School’ on @WWE Backstage this Tuesday at 11p ET on @Fs1. #WWEStarrcade”
Stephen is an avid wrestling fan and has wrestled for WWE before. He had a match on SummerSlam 2015 where he teamed up with Neville to defeat Stardust and King Barrett in a tag team match. Amell then became friends with Cody Rhodes and he teamed up with Bullet Club for a match at Ring of Honor’s Survival of the Fittest in 2017.
Amell’s most recent wrestling appearance was when he competed at All Elite Wrestling’s All In on 6 August 2018 in his first-ever singles match, in a losing attempt against Christopher Daniels.
The Arrow star has said before that he isn’t looking to become a wrestler or get back into the ring again. “I can’t get back in the wrestling ring. I risk divorce.” He had also fractured his hip while wrestling and production of Arrow had to be delayed because of the injury.
Amell is also selling wine with AEW World Champion Chris Jericho. The news was announced on last Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite, and the wine is called “A Little Bit of the Bubbly”. You can read more about it here.
