Cody Rhodes Talks About Stephen Amell Coming To AEW
During a recent interview on The Apter Chat, AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes was asked about the possibility of Arrow star Stephen Amell doing something with AEW.
Amell is a fan who has had some in-ring experience. His first wrestling match was actually in the WWE where he was in a tag match against Rhodes who was then wrestling as Stardust. The two have maintained a friendship since then, with Rhodes taking on a guest role in Arrow and Amell becoming friends with the other members of the Elite.
“Stephen, you know, he’s a wrestler at this point. That’s what we say,” Rhodes explained, referring to the fact that the final season of Arrow has concluded filming.”He’s had a few matches and earned the respect of a rather critical fanbase: the wrestling one.”
“I get the impression that his lovely wife is not super excited about him mixing it up in the ring again, and I’ve got to say that I fully understand that. But I think he’d always be safe in terms of doing something with his “The Elite” brethren, if that makes any sense. I think there’s definitely one more in the tank for Stephen when it comes to wrestling, and I’m not going to let him wrestle anywhere else,” he added.
