It’s smackdown time! In “A Matter of Trust,” the latest episode of “Arrow,” former WWE star Cody Rhodes — playing villainous drug dealer Derek Sampson — takes on Stephen Amell’s Green Arrow. As an appetizer for the main event, The CW has released a preview clip of their bout on the network’s official YouTube channel.
The scene shows that neither bullets nor arrows are enough to stop Sampson. It looks like the once small-time criminal has received a serious power-up and is ready to pound any opposition into the ground. After some wrestling-style action, Oliver uses some quick moves to escape — but how will he ultimately defeat such a seemingly-invulnerable foe?
Of course, this isn’t the first time Amell and Rhodes have faced each other; the pair squared off at WWE’s 2015 SummerSlam. That tussle paired Amell, a longtime WWE fan, with WWE superstar Neville against Rhodes (fighting as “Stardust”) and King Barrett — but in a one-on-one match-up, as seen in the clip above, there’s nowhere to hide.
Starring Stephen Amell as the Emerald Archer, “Arrow” airs Wednesdays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW. The series also stars Emily Bett Rickards, David Ramsey, John Barrowman, Willa Holland and more.
