This summer’s biggest celebrity tiff will come to head at the end of this month. That’s the result of events last night when Stephen Amell, star of the CW’s Arrow, came face-to-face again with his arch-nemesis
the Dark Archer WWE wrestler Stardust on Monday Night RAW. It had been building up to this all summer, and naturally, matters were not resolved in one hour of television. Yup, in case you missed it, this is going to SummerSlam, in a fight that will have dramatic implications on both men because wrestling is totally real. But seriously folks, can Amell overcome without his trusty bow and arrow, and even trustier members of Team Arrow?
To recap, during a match between Adrian Neville and King Barrett, Stardust intervened and attacked Neville. Amell, sensing opportunity in the offense of his sense of fair play, took to the ring coming to Neville’s aid. Only security had the wherewithal to get between the actor and his wrestling nemesis. After the dust settled, both Amell and Stardust agreed to hold over their match to August 23, the date of this year’s SummerSlam.
Here’s the WWE video of how it all went down.
