To help build anticipation for his debut on “Arrow,” pro wrestler turned actor Cody Rhodes debuted specially commissioned wrestling tights inspired by his upcoming appearance in the fifth season of The CW drama.
So…#Arrow fans & wrestling fans alike

The former WWE superstar took to Twitter to show off images of the green-and-black tights emblazoned with the “Arrow” logo the words “Season 5.” Rhodes said “Arrow” and wrestling fans alike will enjoy his new in-ring look.
The next image gives our first look at Rhodes in the ring wearing his new tights. The only thing missing from the ensemble is a dark green hoodie and bow and arrow.
Tonight’s #CrossRhodes event was just straight ??
I have a feeling it’s not the last time I square off from @MDoggMattCross
