SPOILER: See ARROW Star Stephen Amell Impress In His WWE SUMMERSLAM Match

Earlier tonight, Stephen Amell competed in a match against Stardust and King Barrett at WWE Summerslam, and he did surprisingly well! Now, WWE has released some official gifs of the Arrow actor in action. Does Amell have a future as a WWE Superstar, perhaps?

As expected, Stephen Amell and Adrian Neville won their tag team match against Wade Barrett and Stardust at WWE Summerslam earlier tonight. The Arrow actor is clearly in great shape and has an athletic background, but even taking that into account I don't think anyone expected him to be involved to the extent he was.

Amell looked very comfortable right from the off with a confident springboard-jump into the ring, and even flew from the top rope at one point, taking down his opponents on the outside. He did not debut the Arrow season 4 costume as many thought he might, but to be fair, that may have been a tad hokey... even by WWE standards!

Here are some snippets of action in gif form for you to take a look at. What did you think of the match and Summerslam as a whole?

I'm glad this is over so we can never talk about it again.

...What was the point of having the Arrow vest if he was not going to wrestle with it?.......

Assuming the Welsh tax system is similar to the U.S., Josh should be able to write-off some of his trip to Summer Slam because Amell was there.

Amell did great - he got an awesome response from the crowd too. Awesome night overall, but TakeOver was waaaaaaaay better.

I'll bet a whole bunch of sphinchters just collectively unclenched at the CW after Amell finished the match without blowing out a knee.

I am little surprised CW let him do this, if he gets hurt that could hurt filming.

It's always interesting to see non-wrestlers next to the professionals. It's easy to forget how big these wrestlers are until then. Amell is not small by any means, but he looks it in these gifs/pics.

I hope Josh got us all a souvenir considering our clicks probably paid for his trip!

I've got a lot of respect for the training Amell puts in. He's not only in great shape, but he's got the athleticism to do some impressive stunt work on his own.

So is this stupid shit finally done. The absolute asinine feud between a c to b list tv actor and a d list wrestler that has been going on for months. I hope this is finally over and no one pulls this stupid crap again.

That is always something in wrestling that makes me laugh. The wrestlers standing there dumbfounded as another wrestler throws their body into them from the top rope catching them. How about you move a foot to your right or left and let them him the floor. It is like in DBZ when the characters stand there watching their opponent power up for 5 mins instead of you know attacking them.

I hate these types of matches. Of course Amell won. What else was going to happen? ANYTIME a celebrity gets in the wring with a wrestler, the celebrity wins. Friggin David Arquette won the WCW title for crying out loud! lol. (Of course, that signaled the end of the WCW, but that's another story.)

I wonder how the executives at the CW felt at first,they probably didn't want Amell getting injured but then the publicity..any publicity is good for The Arrow show. C'mon CW change the show to GREEN ARROW already.

I was pretty impressed by him in this match. He was all over the place and showed good athletic prowess.

Amell looked small and pasty white when he stands next to the wrestlers. He did a good job but I'm sure that a lot of ladies are less impressed with him now, than they were before seeing in the ring.

Hmmm, men in skin tight suits pounding each others sweaty bodies in staged fights. Cewl. So I get its relation to gay porn....but comics? I know he's CB star, but that's reaching and this isn't news.
