"Arrow" Star Stephen Amell Confronts Stardust on "WWE Raw," "SummerSlam" Match Official

The feud between "Arrow" star Stephen Amell and WWE pro wrestler Stardust (formerly known as Cody Rhodes) reached new heights on Monday's "WWE Raw," broadcast live on USA from Xfinity Arena in Everett, Washington. Following a victory by Neville -- a high-flying "good guy" character who comes to the ring wearing a cape and has been likened to a comic book superhero -- against Wade Barrett, Stardust, a distinctly comic book-y villain, entered the ring and attacked Neville. Stardust then shifted his focus to Amell, sitting in the front row. Stardust shoved Amell, prompting the "Arrow" star to leap into the ring, quickly taking Stardust down before being pulled off be security.

In a subsequent backstage segment, Amell and Neville requested -- and after some cajoling, received -- a tag team match at the upcoming "WWE SummerSlam" event, taking place Aug. 23 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
