As an avid professional wrestling fan, Stephen Amell had long campaigned for a guest appearance on WWE’s weekly Raw program, when in late May 2015 it was reported that he was tentatively set to wrestle Stardust (Cody Rhodes) at WWE’s SummerSlam pay-per-view on August 23, 2015. Amell made his first WWE appearance on the May 25 Raw, where he had a confrontation with Stardust. However, after the real-life death of Stardust’s father Dusty Rhodes in June 2015, reports speculated that the match had been scrapped. Despite this, Stephen Amell stated at the 2015 Comic Con International in July 2015, “I’m probably gonna do some stuff with the WWE. I don’t know if that means a wrestling match. We’ll see.” Stephen Amell returned to Raw on August 10, continuing his storyline with Stardust when he stepped into the ring after being assaulted in the audience by Stardust, attacking the wrestler until being contained by security. Following a backstage segment with Triple H, it was announced that Neville would team with Amell to face Stardust and King Barrett at SummerSlam.
At the event on August 23, 2015, Amell and Neville defeated Barrett and Stardust in a tag team match. Neville and Barrett started and after Neville used his speed to control the action, Barrett tagged in Stardust. Stardust insisted that Amell enter the ring, a challenge accepted in a way that both imitated and bettered Stardust’s own athletic ring entrance. Stardust first pushed Amell to the canvas, Amell then responded with a kip-up and a stiff front thrust kick to Stardust’s chest. For the next few minutes Amell was controlled by Stardust and Barrett, and absorbed punches, kicks, knees, slams, falls from ring to floor, and an attack on the floor by the non-legal man, Stardust. Upon returning to the ring, and hitting Stardust with an enzuigiri, Amell made a hot tag to Neville, who dominated both opponents. The conclusion of the match came after Amell dove off the top turnbuckle onto Stardust and Barrett who were standing on the floor below. The match ended after Neville hit his finisher, the Red Arrow, on Barrett and pinned him. Behind the scenes, wrestlers were said to have been impressed with Amell’s performance. There were also talks of a potential singles match with Stardust. Amell became friends with Rhodes, with whom he later also worked on Arrow.On December 21, 2015, Amell was awarded a Slammy for the “Celebrity Moment of the Year” for his dive onto Stardust.
