People love epic rivalries. From David and Goliath to Batman and The Joker, there's something fascinating about watching two sides of the same coin go head to head. For fans of The CW's Arrow, no rivalry has become quite as entertaining as the one between Stephen Amell and wrestling star, Cody Rhodes. The two have spent well over a year taunting one another (in person and on social media) and now it seems that Rhodes has just debuted an awesome Arrow-themed wrestling costume to add to the mix. Check it out below to see for yourself.
Cody Rhodes posted the above tweet from a recent Cross Rhodes event. Right off the bat it's clear that he's nowhere near done having some fun with Stephen Amell and the Arrow-verse. The photo in question shows him standing in the middle of a wrestling ring, decked out in green Arrow-themed pants, as well as a green jacket that seems to resemble Oliver's initial Arrow outfit from the first three seasons of The CW series. If you consider yourself a fan of Arrow and wrestling, then this is pretty much a dream come true.
It's obviously not surprising to see Cody Rhodes representing The Emerald Archer's solo series in such dramatic fashion. After all, he's about to make a major appearance on the show this week. The upcoming episode will see Cody Rhodes take on the role of a Star City thug named Derek Sampson who is killed by Wild Dog, and subsequently brought back to life as an insanely strong, inhuman killing machine. This photo op is phenomenal publicity for the episode.

The relationship between Cody Rhodes and Stephen Amell has become one of the most entertaining rivalries in pop culture. It all started when the two went head to head at SummerSlam 2015, and they have consistently traded barbs with one another ever since. We don't really know how Wednesday's episode of Arrow will pan out, but we're seriously hoping that the seemingly permanent rivalry between Stephen Amell and Cody Rhodes becomes a seemingly permanent rivalry between Oliver Queen and Sampson.
We will bring you more information concerning Arrow (as well as the rest of the Arrow-verse) as more details become available to us. The Emerald Archer's solo series airs every Wednesday night at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
