The prospect of having celebrities in All Elite Wrestling has certainly been seen in a positive light as of late. Shaquille O’Neal and Mike Tyson’s appearances have been well received on the show. Now it seems another celebrity who is very familiar with pro wrestling could be appearing in the company.
Cody Rhodes and actor Stephen Amell certainly have a lot of history as they have met up several times since their first encounter at 2015’s WWE SummerSlam. Stephen Amell also competed at ALL IN where he faced off against Christopher Daniels.
While speaking to Comicbook.com, Cody Rhodes was asked about the possibility of Stephen Amell making his in-ring return and appearing in AEW somewhere down the line. Rhodes stated that in the past he had talks with Amell about a return but his acting career didn’t let it happen.
Cody Rhodes then claimed that he definitely sees Stephen Amell making his way to AEW in the future to compete in at least one match.
“So Steven gets me excited. ‘Oh, let’s do this. Let’s do this. Let’s do this.’ And then I’ll write a little treatment out, and then it’s, “Well, I’m doing this movie.” I don’t know. I think Stephen will absolutely appear on AEW television moving forward.”
“I know it’s difficult, because he broke his hip wrestling for Christopher Daniels at All In, which very few people know. So I don’t know how excited he is about returning. I know he wants to do it, but he’s got a family. It’s not ballet, but I could see Stephen getting in the ring, for sure, for one more time. I could see that.”
With AEW continuing to become more popular and even more when it will move to TBS next year, perhaps fans might get to see Stephen Amell team up with Cody Rhodes for a program eventually.
