WWE News: Sheamus wants a shot at Stephen Amell in a WWE ring

The two co-star in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie

Stephen Amell as Arrow

His recent string of poor booking aside, WWE Superstar Sheamus is making waves in Hollywood with an enviable role as one of the main bad guys in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. 

Sheamus as Rocksteady, before his transformation

The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion will play an enhanced rhinoceros Rocksteady in TMNT: Out of the Shadows. Stephen Amell, star of the TV show Arrow, shares the screen with Sheamus and the two reportedly hit it off. So much so that the flame-haired wrestler wanted to express his bonhomie with Amell as only he can; by trading fists. Here’s what he said (courtesy of wrestlinginc.com):

He did a stellar performance at SummerSlam. I'd love the opportunity to take him on in the ring! The first time I sat down and met Stephen on set, he surprised me being a huge WWE fan, and so knowledgeable about it for all his life.

“I talked a bit about what I do, I was like, 'Oh you know, come off the top rope, this and that,' then he shows me this video of him doing Parkour, jumping off walls, doing flips, coming down, another flip, jump out to another wall... I was like, oh, I'll stop talking about myself now. I was pretty impressed.”
