On Monday Night Raw (August 10), Triple H cemented a tag-team match, pitting Arrow star actor Stephen Amell and Neville against Stardust and King Barrett at SummerSlam next Sunday (August 23) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
Well, from the looks of Amell's official Twitter account, it seems like the actor is taking the match quite seriously. On Thursday (August 13), he posted a picture of himself perched upon the top ropes of a WWE ring, while training for the upcoming bout. This shot will certainly have the WWE Universe wondering what high-flying move he is practicing.

He also woke up Friday morning (August 14) with wrestling on his mind, tweeting in Barrett and Stardust's direction:
Hey @WadeBarrett & @StardustWWE? Saw you jump @WWENeville. You seem like two dudes who probably travel with their own pillows. — Stephen Amell (@amellywood) August 14, 2015
It's appropos that Amell is still tweeting, too. After all, a back-and-forth Twitter exchange between he and Stardust is how this feud sparked, spilling from social media to one of the WWE's biggest stages in SummerSlam.
By the looks of his training, Amell already figures to be a better wrestler than celebrities such as Drew Carey, Snooki and Lawrence Taylor, who all tried getting into a WWE ring before him. However, he'll have to prove that in the ring in just over one week. No pressure, Stephen...only the entire WWE Universe will be watching.
