Stephen Amell is to swap the bow and arrows for a pair of wrestling boots.
On August 23, the Arrow star will step into a WWE ring for a match on the company’s second-biggest show of the year, SummerSlam.
Following lots of speculation, Amell confirmed his participation in the event during this past Monday’s episode of Raw when he jumped into the ring and battled with Stardust. Later in the show, during a backstage segment with WWE COO Triple H, Amell demanded a match with the wrestler, which was granted. Amell will team with Neville to take on Stardust and King Barrett.
The move should garner WWE with a ton of publicity, especially with Amell being pretty hot-property right now; season 4 of Arrow is due to start in September, he is expected to pop up in the second series of The Flash and spinoff show Legends of Tomorrow, and he is also currently working on TMNT2.
