As seen at last Saturday’s ALL IN event, Stephen Amell wrestled his first-ever singles match against Christopher Daniels in a losing effort. The Green Arrow star took to Facebook to reflect on his experience and hinted that it could very well be the last time he ever wrestles again.
“I really wanted to pass along some gratitude for what was a once in a lifetime, possibly a last of a lifetime experience for me, being at All In. Being part of the largest independent wrestling show ever, was seriously, seriously, seriously incredible.”
“I want to thank Christopher Daniels for being just a wonderful opponent. I don’t want to break kayfabe, but when it came time to selecting who we wanted me to work with here for All In, Cody was very insistent that I be with a guy that has the know-how and the wherewithal that Christopher Daniel’s has. He was nothing short of a life saver in the ring. Because about three minutes in, I did what I anticipated would happen, and what everyone told me would happen, and what I knew would happen. I blew up! Couldn’t catch my breath. I had no idea where I was and being with a guy like CD [Christopher Daniels]… I couldn’t have done it without him.”
“Most of all I would like to thank Cody, Brandi and the entire Rhodes family. I’ve known Cody for the better half of three years and to watch him come out for his match later on in the night and the emotion on his face, and to see him realize a show like All In was really quite amazing. I’m so very proud of him.”
