The thing is, Amell is getting ready to tackle a slightly different twist for Season 4 of his hit show, as Oliver is coming back to his city as Green Arrow. He’s got a spiffy new costume to go with the (slight) name change, as you can see above.

Amell posted a Facebook video last night to give us all a little preview of what to expect from him. At the end, he holds up what looks like his latest vest, rhetorically asking if we thought he would come without it.

Amell will hardly be the first non-wrestler to take an active role in a WWE pay-per-view. It’s a tradition that dates back 30 years to WrestleMania I, when Mr. T teamed with Hulk Hogan to battle “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff.

If you want to catch Amell at SummerSlam, it will air at 7 pm on Sunday, August 23, live on the WWE Network.
