Amell, a lifelong wrestling fan, then talked about returning to the ring at some stage in his career. He said that he wants to return as a wrestler and not as a celebrity wrestler who always has to be the babyface of the story. He also added that he has been poking Cody for this wish. Amell said- “I’d be lying if I hadn’t said that I hadn’t been poking and prodding Cody and stuff like that.”

 “It’s time for me, not just for the show, for the namesake, but just in general its time for me to take a heel turn. I’m sick and tired of just being the celebrity guest spot who’s happy to be there. It’s time for me to take a steel chair and just kick the s**t out of somebody.” said Stephen Amell.
