During his time in WWE, Cody Rhodes somehow managed to strike up a friendship with Stephen Amell, the star of the hit CW superhero show Arrow, leading to Amell actually making his in-ring debut in a tag team match against Cody (in his Stardust persona) at SummerSlam in 2015. Unfortunately, it didn’t lead to anything much for Stardust’s career, and Rhodes actually left WWE earlier this year after becoming frustrated with the direction of his career. However, in the meantime, Cody secured a role in an episode of Arrow, where it appears he’ll once again be playing a villain against Amell’s Green Arrow. This season has been pretty good so far, and we can’t wait to see what Cody does with the opportunity!

It’s likely the whole world knows who Brendan Dassey is at this point, after he was one of the subjects of the critically acclaimed Netflix series Making A Murderer. During the show, Dassey, who is intellectually challenged (a fact which played into how he was convicted as an accomplice), talked about how he was upset that he was going to be in jail and unable to watch WrestleMania 22. This caught the attention of wrestling fans and several wrestlers, most notably former WWE Superstar X-Pac, who expressed a desire to visit Dassey in prison.
