Stephen Amell to appear on this week's WWE Backstage


Actor, pro wrestling fan, and occasional in-ring competitor Stephen Amell is set to appear on this week's edition of WWE Backstage.

WWE on FOX announced yesterday that Amell will be the guest on Backstage's Promo School segment this Tuesday. The segment features an athlete or celebrity cutting a promo and being graded by the Backstage panel, with the target of their promo then getting to respond to them.

This will be the fifth episode of Backstage since the show started airing in its regular time slot at 11 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesdays on FS1.

Amell made his in-ring debut by teaming with Neville against Cody Rhodes (as Stardust) & Wade Barrett at SummerSlam 2015. With his friendship with Cody and The Elite, Amell also teamed with Cody, The Young Bucks & Kenny Omega against Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian, Scorpio Sky & Flip Gordon at an ROH show in 2017 and faced Daniels in a singles match at All In.

Amell is the star of "Arrow," which is currently airing its final run of episodes. He's been announced as the lead of a pro wrestling drama series called "Heels" that's been given an eight-episode order by Starz.

Amell's Nocking Points Wines recently partnered with AEW to release "A Little Bit of the Bubbly" by Chris Jericho.
