The heart of the matter
Stephen Amell was notably involved in a storyline with Stardust (Cody Rhodes)—with appearances on Monday Night RAW eventually leading to the former competing in a Tag Team Match at SummerSlam 2015.
Amell & Neville took on Cody & King Barrett aka Wade Barrett in a Tag Team matchup—one that saw Amell & Neville emerge victorious at “The Biggest Party of the Summer”.
Additionally, Amell has also appeared alongside his real-life friend Cody Rhodes in ROH (Ring Of Honor)—performing a few notable spots at an ROH event last year.
As noted, All In—which is considered to be the biggest indie professional wrestling event of the 2018 calendar year—is being funded by Cody and The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson).
It’s now being indicated by way of the All In Twitter account that Amell will indeed compete in his first-ever singles professional wrestling match at All In.
Furthermore, in his debut singles match, Amell is set to face none other than highly-respected pro-wrestling veteran Christopher Daniels.
Addressing the same, Amell has put forth a tweet by way of his official social media account, stating that he will retire Daniels. His tweet read as follows—
“I’m going to retire Christopher Daniels.”
Stephen Amell vs. Christopher Daniels is set to take place at All In.
