Stephen Amell – WWE SmackDown News, What Happened Before and After SmackDown


Last night’s dark match for WWE SmackDown at the Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City saw Ricochet and Madcap Moss beat Los Lotharios.

In the dark main event after SmackDown went off the air, The Street Profits and Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Imperium’s Ludwig Kaiser, Giovanni Vinci and WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther. The finish came when Nakamura hit Kaiser with a Kinshasa.

A related note, actor Stephen Amell was with the announcers for last night’s SmackDown last night. Although Amell was not recognized on the FOX broadcast, he was briefly seen on a fancam segment that aired in the arena during a commercial.


Amell, who was in Salt Lake City for the FanX Salt Lake Pop Culture & Comic Convention, took to Twitter and thanked WWE for being there. He also posted a clip of SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan throwing Lacey Evans through a table.

“Thank you to the @WWE for having me and thank you to @YaOnlyLivvOnce for being amazing,” he wrote.

Amell is a longtime pro wrestling fan, making his in-ring debut with WWE at SummerSlam 2015, teaming up with Neville (current AEW All-Atlantic & World Trios Champion PAC) to defeat Wade Barrett and Stardust (Cody Rhodes) . Amell was praised for his performance, by fans online and wrestlers backstage. Amell then made his ROH debut at Survival of the Fittest 2017, teaming up with The Bullet Club (Rhodes, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks) to defeat Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian, Flip Gordon, and Scorpio Sky in a 5-on-4 match . Amell’s first singles match came at the 2018 All In event, where he was defeated by Daniels. Amell appeared for AEW in 2020 and accompanied Rhodes to the ring for his loss to MJF at the Revolution pay-per-view. He hasn’t wrestled for WWE since that first match, but he did make a few brief appearances, including a “Promo School” appearance on FS1’s WWE Backstage show before it was removed.
