Most recently, a very exciting crossover has happened, which is leading into WWE's second biggest event of the year, SummerSlam. That crossover is Arrow and upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star, Stephen Amell, who made his way into the ring. And in a more exciting fashion than a lot of experienced wrestlers do.
What started as a very organic deal, has naturally expanded into an actual match.
WWE for a short amount of time, was bringing in guest celebrities to host their weekly live event, Monday Night Raw. With entertainers ranging from singer Rob Zombie, game show host Bob Barker, NBA team owner Mark Cuban and others, coming in every week to help promote their product and get involved in the show.
A little late to the game, Stephen Amell started growing in popularity with his hit TV show Arrow and wanted to get himself in the mix of hosting Raw. He started working his own campaign on Twitter and Facebook, with only hopes to host... And if that meant wrestling, he was game for that, too.
When it seemed like the WWE wasn't noticing, we see Amell in attendance just as a fan. They acknowledged him but that was about it. Until WWE character Stardust (a delusional Cody Rhodes) got in his face. What seemed like a little bit of fan service and the end of a 'program', turned into a fun Twitter feud between the two.
On the 8/10 edition of Raw, Stephen Amell was in attendance again, this time he was provoked enough to actually get in the ring and he looked impressive. This lead to a backstage segment with HHH, that ended with an official match announcement with Amell teaming with hero type character Neville vs. King Barrett and Stardust.
