Stephen Amell made a name for himself by portraying the role of the Green Arrow in CW’s hit show Arrow. He is also huge fan of professional wrestling and has even competed in pro wrestling matches in WWE and also at All In few years ago. In fact, it appears he believes he is one good match away from getting inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame.
Prior to All In, Stephen Amell worked SummerSlam 2015, where he notably faced off against Cody Rhodes when he was known as Stardust. Stephen Amell and Cody Rhodes share a solid friendship as well.
He even competed in a match at Ring Of Honor a few years ago. While speaking with Bleacher Report Featured Columnist Graham “GSM” Matthews for WrestleRant before the SAG strike, Stephen Amell was asked if he wants to wrestle again. Amell made it clear he wants to wrestle and that he believes he is one good match away from getting inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame.
“Yeah, you know. No because when I did it previously, so three matches. So there’s one in 2015 at SummerSlam, there’s a Ring of Honor show, which I believe was in late 2017 or early 2018, which was really cool. Then there was the All In show. I’m proud of those matches, obviously, but I will say that I can no ring cardio whatsoever. I was in the middle of shooting ‘Arrow’, I wasn’t really doing any cardio, so I blew up all there times, even though two of them are tag matches.
But I would just say that the past couple years on the show, before, I’m trying to learn how to do a Coast-to-Coast or how to do an enziguri, or how to springboard. I was faking it. We were coming up with sequences, like, ‘Can Cody set you up for a suplex, and can you roll over his back and land on your feet?’ Yeah, I can do that. ‘Okay, let’s do that.’ Whereas now, I actually understand a little bit better the psychology, how to pace yourself in the ring, all these things.
I mean, fantasy booking, I’d love to have a WrestleMania match. Cody says this all the time. I’m one good match away from the Hall of Fame. One good match. Now I have a different standard than everyone else, if I was an actual professional wrestler and just sort of an interloping quote-on-quote celebrity appearance every once and a while, I’d have much much work to do. But I feel like for that wing of the WWE Hall of Fame, I’m like one good match away, and a Mania match counts as like ten matches, so we’ll see. It’s the Snoop Dogg/Arnold Schwarzenegger wing of the Hall of Fame. We used to call it the Donald Trump wing of the Hall of Fame, but we don’t [do that] so much anymore.”
We will have to wait and see whether Stephen Amell will make his way back to WWE and compete in another match and possibly get inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in the future.
