Stephen Amell is most well known to everyone as Oliver Queen in Arrow, but wrestling fans are also well-versed with the talented gentleman. When current AEW employee Cody Rhodes, was still working with WWE as Stardust, the 34-year-old wrestler was embroiled in a feud with Stephen and along with Neville and King Barrett, fought each other at Summerslam 2015. Stephen's skills were appreciated by wrestlers and fans alike and the actor also won a Slammy for Celebrity Moment of the Year for diving onto Stardust during their Summerslam 2015 match.

Now, years later, as Arrow is reaching its final conclusion with season 8 and we'll soon be getting the highly awaited Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover in January 2020, Amell will be returning to the wrestling world, but hold onto your horses! It won't be an in-ring return like we would have hoped. Instead, the 38-year-old will be putting his mic skills to the test when he appears on FS1's WWE-centric talk show, WWE Backstage, which is hosted by Renee Young and Booker T. Following the lines of David Arquette, Diamondbacks' Adam Jonas, Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, Gabriel Iglesias and LaVar Arrington, Stephen will participate in Promo School.
