Stephen Amell wants the Bullet Club to appear in Arrow

After striking up a friendship with wrestler Cody Rhodes following his guest appearance in Arrow as Derek Sampson, actor Stephen Amell made his pro-wrestling debut in 2015, appearing in a tag match alongside Neville as they faced Rhodes’ Stardust and King Barrett at SummerSlam.

Amell returned to the squared circle last month at a Ring of Honor event, where he became a member of the Bullet Club faction and teamed with Rhodes, Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks to face The Addiction, Flip Gordon and Scorpio Sky. And now it seems he’s hoping to entice his Bullet Club buddies into a guest appearance on The CW’s superhero show.

“I’m trying to get those guys to come out to one of these shows, as a group,” said Amell at the Heroes & Villains Fan Fest. “I think that would be amazing. Those guys are great. Matt and Nick and Kenny

‘Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season’ DVD Review

It feels like recently I’ve been reviewing way too many superhero series. I’ve gone from the dorky style of Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, to the slightly more serious The Flash. Now it is time to look at Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season, which takes things even more seriously.

In Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is now mayor meaning that his balance between work and being the Arrow is even more complicated. When a new nemesis in the form of Prometheus arrives in Star City, Oliver’s eyes will be opened to who he really is, and what consequences his actions have.

While there is (normally) a light-hearted feel to the other DC shows, Arrow tends to take the darker tone. This is made obvious in this season when we see Oliver not afraid to kill his enemies for what he sees as the greater good.

Cody on Why Ring of Honor World Championship Makes Him Feel ‘Vindicated’
Free agent pro wrestler Cody (don’t call him “Cody Rhodes”) is feeling awfully “vindicated” these days. Though the WWE alum may not have a permanent place of employment, he has a belt — and it’s coming home with him this weekend. Bringing the hardware he has back to Atlanta, Georgia “means a great deal,” Cody Runnels told TheWrap ahead of his big bout. After all, “The Ring of Honor World Title is a recognized world title.” Ring of Honor is one of the two pro-wrestling promotions that Cody currently makes his bones in, with the other being New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Why Wrestler Cody Can’t Be Pinned Down by His Stage Name
Cody Runnels is a professional wrestler who most of you would know as either “Cody Rhodes” or his former face-painted WWE character “Stardust.” These days, the son of Dusty Rhodes (real name Virgil Runnels, Jr.) and brother of Vince McMahon’s veteran grappler Goldust (Dustin Runnels) is just going by his first name in pro-wrestling promotions New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring of Honor. Oh, and he also happens to be World Champion of the latter, a title he’ll defend this weekend in Atlanta. Why Runnels (pictured above from his WWE days) can’t use “Rhodes” is kind of complicated but mostly simple,

WWE Raw backstage “chaos”, Daniel Bryan teases Roh wrestling return – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Daniel Bryan Teases Roh Return

Bryan returned to WWE TV on last week’s Smackdown Live after the release of his debut child the previous month, and he’s quickly been reminding everyone how much he loves to wrestle.

Despite retiring from competition last February because WWE wouldn’t medically clear him because of his history of concussions, Bryan revealed to Sports Illustrated last week that he’s “working on” an in-ring return.

Shortly after that interview, Cage Side Seats reported that Bryan has undergone more medical tests over the last couple of months, which may have gone well. This is why there’s talk of him wrestling again, although it’s expected he’ll never do so in WWE.

Then last Friday night, following Cody Rhodes’ Roh Championship win at their Best in the World pay-per-view,

Ranking All 17 Money in the Bank Cash-Ins From Worst to Best

Liam Hoofe takes a look at all 17 previous Money in the Bank cash-ins and ranks them from worst to best…

This Sunday night the WWE will crown their 18th Mr. Money in the Bank. Since the debut of the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania 21, the bout has given us 17 victors, 15 of which have gone on to win world titles- a good omen for whoever walks away the winner this Sunday night.

Ever since the first cash-in at New Year’s Revolution 2006, the WWE have tried to surprise fans and come up with different and innovative ways to deploy the gimmick, the majority of which have been successful.

Not all cash-ins are created equal however and some of them have not quite worked out as planned. With that in mind, let’s take a look back at each Money in the Bank cash in and rank them,

Arrow Season 5 Episode 21 Review – ‘Honor Thy Fathers’

Jessie Robertson reviews the twenty-first episode of Arrow season 5…

Curtis, his quips and the T-Spheres are all becoming an integral part of this show….

As a much improved and more down to Earth season 5 winds up, we can take stock into what this season had to offer: a damn good and not just scary, but insane twisted genius in Adrian Chase; a Team Arrow unlike any in its history but one of great value, and another Oliver conscience-crisis that dare I say it, may stick? Gone is the mysticism that Damien Dahrk brought last year and the nuclear explosions and what remained was Oliver trying to clean up Star City with martial arts, arrows and the occasional firearm. The (somewhat) culmination came tonight when faced off with each other ( in a crazy good fight scene of furious action) Prometheus and Green Arrow (back in costume) comes down to a mind game,

'Arrow' Episode 5.21 Photos: Derek Sampson Returns to Torment Oliver
Adrian Chase's actions will result in the release of many criminals from jail in episode 21 of Arrow season 5, titled "Honor Thy Fathers," including the return of Derek Sampson, played by professional wrestler Cody Runnels.

The official episode description from The CW says, "Chase continues to torment Oliver: Oliver returns to the mayor's office and faces one of his most pressing issues yet -- the forced release of dozens of violent criminals prosecuted by Adrian Chase. Meanwhile, a crate is delivered to Oliver's office containing a mysterious corpse encased in concrete."

Thrilling New Arrow Trailer Features Several Returns And Teases The Remainder Of Season 5

With the final stretch of Arrow season 5 set to commence in less than a week, The CW has released a new trailer in hope of getting viewers primed. And although we probably would’ve been satisfied with a deeper look at the returning episode alone, the network upped the ante by teasing what’s to come for the remainder of the season – with even a few possible looks at the finale.

Now, saying that there’s a lot to go over in this two-minute promo is a massive understatement, but let’s breakdown some of the finer points:

Prometheus: Season 5’s big bad has no doubt had amend his endgame now that his secret identity has been revealed to the public. Still, that doesn’t make him any less of a threat. And now that he’s “in the wind,” it looks like he’s attempting to pick Team Arrow off one by one,

Kurt Angle wrestling return medical planned, Alberto Del Rio shoots on WWE | WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in this twice-daily WrestleTalk column…

It’s been a week now since The Undertaker seemingly retired from professional wrestling, leaving his coat, hat and gloves in the middle of the ring after his Wrestlemania defeat to Roman Reigns – an act which, again, I must point out did not make me cry.

But what next for The Deadman? Landscaping’s always an option, with his 20 year plus tending of the WWE yard, as is construction, with the many holes he’s dug for various souls.

Instead, Undertaker’s first post-WWE retirement appearance has been to endorse country music singer/songwriter George Strait’s Las Vegas tour in a video on Twitter.

Fresh off his @WWE retirement, The Undertaker proves that George's influence spreads way beyond country music!

Seven More Ex-Superstars WWE Should Sign

Liam Hoofe takes a look at seven other ex-superstars the WWE should consider signing…

With Kurt Angle and The Hardy Boyz having returned to the WWE this past week, and Drew McIntyre re-signing with the company too, it would appear as though the WWE is entering a new era of rehiring old superstars to add to their current roster.

Since last year’s brand split we have also seen the return of Curt Hawkins, Shelton Benjamin (well, not yet), Jinder Mahal and of course, Goldberg. The company’s willingness to reach out to old stars has opened the door to many possible returns and here is a look at seven other stars the company should consider reaching out to.

Rey Mysterio

With WWE’s cruiserweight division finally beginning to get some momentum behind it, there would be no better time to add some real star power to the division than now.

Matt & Jeff Hardy ‘Broken’ WWE return in jeopardy, Rusev injured?

When Matt and Jeff Hardy left Tna Impact Wrestling late last month, the immediate questions on everyone’s lips were ‘are they going to WWE!?’ ‘What caused them to leave Tna!?’ and ‘Who really is Byron Saxton?’ But underneath all this fantasy booking and secret negotiations was a boring old legal story. Turns out – as usually is the case – that boring old legal story might be the most significant part of the Broken Hardys’ expedition of contracts.

The day after Matt and Jeff announced they weren’t resigning with Tna, Pro Wrestling Sheet reported that there was a dispute over who actually owned the rights to the Broken Hardys gimmick – the character that completely reinvented Matt’s career and made him one of the hottest acts in wrestling. The Hardys argued they own the Broken gimmick, as they came up with it, but Impact Wrestling owners Anthem Sports and Entertainment reportedly claim it’s theirs,

Jeff Hardy to WWE & Matt Hardy to New Japan? Massive changes at Tna…

A lot has gone down in Tna over the last few weeks. Original founder Jeff Jarrett has officially regained control of the promotion after being brought back in by the new owners Anthem Sports and Entertainment. Jarrett, in turn, has changed-up the backstage team, replacing previous Head of Creative John Gaburick with his guy Dutch Mantell – the former Zeb Colter in WWE. With the first batch of TV tapings from the new regime set to start tonight, Tna’s future direction will finally be unveiled.

And it’s going to be pretty different.

In just this week alone, top acts Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis, former World Heavyweight Champion Drew Galloway, current Tag Team Champions Matt and Jeff Hardy – and now the latest, former Knockouts Champion Jade – have all left the company. The way things are going, expect several other wrestlers to have departed Tna by the time this article goes live.

Finn Balor’s WWE return dates leaked? Injured WWE star returns at weekend show…

WWE are pretty notorious about sending cease and desist letters to anyone even slightly encroaching on their intellectual property. The reason Cody Rhodes just goes by ‘Cody’ in all his post-wwe appearances is because WWE actually own the ‘Cody Rhodes’ name.

So global makeup brand Maybelline better watch out, after Sasha Banks exposed their ‘Lash Like A Boss’ campaign on Twitter below…

What the gimmick infringement is this @Maybelline ????? @JudgeJudy @DrPhil

— notorious Sb (@SashaBanksWWE) February 19, 2017

Good that she copied in respected legal institutions Judge Judy and Doctor Phil there.

WWE has their big television shows Raw and Smackdown, but each brand also tours live events throughout the week that aren’t broadcast. They’re purely for those in attendance, and are thus called house shows. These are the perfect environments to work out storylines, try out new gimmicks and practice big spots before doing them on television or pay-per-view.

Kurt Angle confirmed for WWE Hall of Fame 2017, WWE star injured before Raw…

It’s a pretty quiet news day today. I’ve got the main event taping results here, I guess. Spoiler warning! Like anyone watches it anyway...

Brian Kendrick defeated Mustafa Ali. The Shining Stars defeated the team of Darren Young and Sin Cara, which had to be stopped 2 minutes in when Young appeared to genuinely injure his shoulder, and…Oh, and WWE announced Kurt Angle as the first inductee into the 2017’s Hall of Fame. What The What!?

This was announced with zero build on last night’s episode of Raw, almost as a throwaway, but the news was actually broken by Espn shortly before, where Kurt spoke to Brian Campbell:

“I was shocked. I’ve been out of WWE for a long time and out of touch with them, so I didn’t really expect this…And whether I wrestle or not after this — which is irrelevant right

Ex-wwe stars return to Tna, WWE Hall of Fame 2017 class leaked?

Just as it was reported from the Tna TV tapings, Brooke Tessmacher made her return in last night’s episode of Tna.

If it’s still called Tna, that is. The promotion’s new owners Anthem Giant Birds and Entertainment appear to be phasing out the name – one which many criticise for being an outdated play on the early-00s WWE tag team Test and Albert. And also that it sounds like the abbreviation of ‘tits and ass’.

Note to self: never let Vince Russo name your wrestling promotion.

Both Tna’s Twitter and Facebook pages now barely have any mention of those three initials, with Impact Wrestling now becoming the branding’s focus.

Anyways, back to Brooke. In a backstage interview, she announced she’s back with the promotion full-time and plans on winning the Knockouts Championship. And the former Damien Sandow in WWE, Aron Rex, debuted his

Ring of Honor stars to WWE, Vince McMahon on crutches backstage…

With Wrestlemania 33 just a few months away, now is the perfect time to start announcing plans for Wrestlemania 34!

If only WWE planned out their creative that far in advance.

The news might have leaked a week earlier, but that didn’t stop WWE putting on a hell of a press conference – the ‘hell’ part coming from The Deadman appearing to utter the words: “let the good times roll.”

Not quite “Rest in Peace.” We’ll put that catchphrase in the maybe pile for now.

This was to announce Wrestlemania 34 will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana. You wouldn’t know it’s number 34 going by the logo, though, as just like Wrestlemanias 31, 32 and 33 logos, there aren’t any Roman Reigns numerals.

You’re probably thinking, ‘New Orleans? But they only had it several years ago with Wrestlemania 30’. F4WOnline are reporting this was decided a few weeks ago based on
