• CM Punk Making In-Ring Return On Starz Series “Heels”
Stephen Amell is known to be a huge fan of pro-wrestling and even teamed up with Neville (now known as Pac) to take on Stardust (Cody Rhodes) and Wade Barrett in a Tag Team match at SummerSlam 2015, which Amell and Neville won.
The Arrow star is now set to headline a wrestling series “Heels” on Starz in which he’ll play a dual-identity role of Jack Spade, head of and a competitor in the struggling Duffy Wrestling League.
Amell has got former WWE Champion CM Punk with him on the show as well. He confirmed the news of Punk being a part of the series earlier today on Twitter.
Below is what he tweeted:
“Please welcome @CMPunk to @HeelsSTARZ — He was a little rusty in the ring yesterday, but I assured him it was just like riding a bike.”

PWInsider is reporting that Punk has been in Atlanta for weeks, and is currently filming for the show.
He will play the rival of Amell in the series. He first gave an audition for the role of Jack Spade, but wasn’t casted after the project was paused for a while.
