Stephen Amell, star of the CW's Arrow, announced his return to the wrestling world with this tweet:
The event that Amell will be appearing at is a live show:
11/17/17 RING OF HONOR SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST NIGHT 1 - SAN ANTONIO, TX
It's not a pay-per-view, or a show that would regularly appear on the Ring of Honor tv show .
According to Ring of Honor's Director of Production, Mark Davis, highlights will likely be on the Ring of Honor show, but may not appear until late December.
Amell has teased the idea of returning to wrestling several times on social media, most recently with this tweet:
#TooSweet is a reference to the Young Bucks - one of the most popular tag teams in wrestling.
Or this pic, referencing the Bullet Club, as featured on Ring of Honor and NJPW:
It's worth noting that the announcement is just that Amell will be appearing ... so, he may not be wrestling. And, perhaps, is just beginning a series of appearances leading to a match.
Amell is a long-time fan of the squared circle, and made a big impact with fans with his appearance at Summer Slam:
He's friends with his foe in that Summer Slam match, Cody Rhodes (then WWE's Stardust.) Rhodes is currently Ring of Honor's World Champion ... so, it's possible we could be looking at the first step towards a rematch.
The Ring of Honor tv show airs Saturdays at 9p on CW 14. That said, it's been airing at 9:30pm on Saturdays, due to college football on FOX 11 pushing the FOX 11 News at 9 onto CW 14.
Here's the current show description from the Ring of Honor website:
Ring of Honor will be in Texas for a live event in San Antonio at the Austin Highway Event Center on November 17th. There’s truly nothing like seeing the hard-hitting, in-your-face action that only ROH can provide LIVE. Don’t miss your chance to be there!
