The star of The CW’s superhero television series Arrow, Stephen Amell, is a a great guy who is constantly doing lovely things for his fan. Even when he spent several months feuding with – and eventually wrestling with – WWE superstar Stardust did he manage to do something to make him a real life hero. He used the attention of his feud with Stardust and their match at SummerSlam to generate a whole lot of money for charity. (more…)
The Dark Archer. Deathstroke. Ra’s al Ghul. No, the real test for the man who plays TV’s Green Arrow will be when he steps into the wrestling ring this Sunday in his much ballyhoo’d showdown on WWE SummerSlam. Arrow star Stephen Amell will be face-off against Twitter war rival Stardust this weekend, in a match that will see Amell team with Adrian Neville against Stardust and King Barrett. But ever the social media guru, Amell shared his prep work with Facebook fans , including the famous green outfit that he’ll be wrestling in… (more…)
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? (more…)
Much of professional sports is built on the inherent drama of the long-running rivalry: the Yankees and the Red Sox, the Maple Leafs and the Canadiens, and dueling quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. Let’s add to that Arrow and Stardust, or rather make that Arrow star Stephen Amell and the WWE wrestler Cody Rhodes, AKA: Stardust. The simple Twitter-fight has persisted despite many fans wondering just what the point of it was, and while everyone thought that this was all leading up to face-to-face at SummerSlam, we’re actually going to get the Amell/Stardust showdown much sooner. This coming Monday to be precise. (more…)
The equivalent of the celebrity stunt casting in professional wrestling is the celebrity beef, when a wrestler calls out a celebrity over some imagined slight and the two end up facing off in the ring together. One recent participant was Jon Stewart, whose “feud” with Seth Collins caused a ratings bump when the Daily Show host turned up on Monday Night RAW. Fortunately for the short and untoned Stewart, wrestling is fake and he was able to come out of the encounter unscathed, but what if a wrestler were to face someone who could legitimately be a threat. Someone whose day job (and now summer job) is playing a superhero/vigilante? Stephen Amell: Llllllllllllet’s get ready to rumble!!!!! (Maybe. If the rumor’s true.) (more…)
Hollywood legend Peter O’Toole (1932-2013) passed away yesterday in a London hospital after an extended illness at the age of 81. While cinephiles knew him best for David Lean‘s masterpiece Lawrence of Arabia, nerddom remembers him for his performance in 1984’s cheesy, yet beloved Supergirl as Zaltar–the drunken artist who nearly single-handedly destroys Supergirl’s floating domed city.
