During last summers WWE charity event Arrow star Stephen Amell made a new friend in the wrestler, ‘Stardust‘. And, it looks like the friendship is going to carry over to ‘Arrow’ as the wrestler will be joining the cast of the show for season 5! Check out the latest details on this move below, and share your thoughts AFTER THE JUMP!
The news was made official during a panel at the Heroes & Villains FanFest in New Jersey today by Stephen Amell, with Rhodes adding that, “You can probably expect Stephen and I to get into another fight.” No further details about who he’ll play were revealed, but chances are that he’ll be playing a villain based on that description. It was also mentioned that he’ll first show up in episode three.
What we do know is that Rhodes won’t be in the WWE owned Stardust persona he adopted during that wrestling match with Amell at last year’s SummerSlam. Oddly, none of the wrestlers involved with that bout did too well as Neville (Amell’s tag team partner) broke his ankle and King Barrett also left the company. Regardless, it’s should be a lot of fun seeing Rhodes make his presence felt in Arrow!
