Arrow's Stephen Amell has responded to Dave Bautista after the Guardians of the Galaxy star appeared to take umbrage with Amell's comments regarding Bautista's Wrestlemania 35 matchup against Triple H.
"Hey Dave -- I went out of my way to introduce myself to you in Atlanta at a convention so I could tell you what a big fan of yours I am," Amell said in a Twitter post. "You couldn't have been more pleasant. My tweet was meant to poke fun at me. It clearly wasn't funny. Please don't kill me."

The new rivalry kicked off when Amell tweeted how he was excited for the Triple H/Bautista Wrestlemania bout, "but also [doesn't] want to see a celebrity angle detract from an awesome wrestling card." While Amell was more than likely poking fun at himself over his own pay-per-view match in the WWE at 2015's SummerSlam, Bautista chose to fire back with a list of his many accomplishments in the squared circle, reminding everyone that he is a six-time world champion.
Bautista's next major role will be playing Glossu Rabban in Denis Villeneuve's Dune reboot, which also stars Timothee Chalamet as Paul Atreides, Rebecca Ferguson as Jessica Atreides, Stellan Skarsgard as Vladimir Harkonnen, Charlotte Rampling as Reverend Mother Mohiam, Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto, Javier Bardem as Stilgar and the recently confirmed Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck. The movie hits theaters on Nov. 20, 2020. He will also reprise his role as Drax in Avengers: Endgame, in theaters on April 26.
Airing Mondays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW, Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, Rick Gonzalez as Wild Dog, Juliana Harkavy as Black Canary, Colton Haynes as Arsenal, Kirk Acevedo as Diaz and Katie Cassidy as Black Siren.
