Rhodes Arrives in New Arrow Promo, Bringing a Familiar Name

Former WWE superstar turned independent wrestler and actor Cody Rhodes makes his anticipated debut on the Oct. 19 episode of “Arrow.” When he arrives, fans can expect more than a passing nod to the feud between Stephen Amell and Rhodes’ WWE character known as Stardust.

The first full teaser for Rhodes’ debut as the villainous Derek Sampson offers not only a further explanation of his abilities (super-strength, impervious to pain), but a quick origin story. Sampson is a drug dealer, and his chosen narcotic to sell is known as “stardust.”

His first encounter with Team arrow doesn’t go well for anyone involved, we quickly learn, as Oliver informs Wild Dog, “A stardust dealer was killed last night by a vigilante.” It’s quickly revealed that isn’t exactly true, however; Sampson re-appears, not only alive, but stronger than ever, and ready to mete out a little pain to the Green Arrow and his team.

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.
