Cody Rhodes discusses his role on tonight’s “Arrow”

codyrhodes1Cody Rhodes will be guest starring on the “Arrow” television show. Rhodes will be playing the role of Derek Sampson, which he discussed in an interview with IGN. “It was killer,” he said of playing the character. “They did so well by me and I was so excited to be a part of it. They made me cooler than I ever thought I could be. I felt like a supervillain, but a street-style supervillain.

“I think for people who were fans of the interaction between Stephen [Amell] and I as far as the WWE was concerned and SummerSlam – the episode itself, which is completely unrelated, it’s funny, it’s incredibly physical and picks up kind of where we left off from where we were in the ring. So it’s pretty generous in terms of its action. It was also very kind of the stunt team, on Arrow, to let me do so many of my own stunts. Stephen does so much of his own work so this was a very enriching experience.” Read the full interview at

Powell’s POV: Arrow airs at 7CT/8ET on The CW Network. He also discussed some pro wrestling in the interview, including his work as Stardust, being a true independent wrestler, and his wife Brandi branching out by becoming a wrestler in TNA.
