Stephen Amell Doesn't Want A Celebrity Angle To "Detract" From WrestleMania; Batista Responds

Batista isn't having any criticism from Stephen Amell. 

The return of Batista on the Feb. 25 edition of Raw had the wrestling world talking. It had been five years since Batista was involved in a major storyline and during that time, he's become a successful actor and a Marvel superhero, starring in the popular "Guardians of the Galaxy" films. But Batista always wanted one final match against Triple H at WrestleMania and this year, he's going to get it.

While a marquee matchup between the former Evolution running mates has many excited, "Arrow" star Stephen Amell is concerned Batista's celebrity will detract from the rest of the event.

It's possible Amell is poking fun at his own involvement in wrestling. As fans may remember, Amell was part of All In this past September, wrestling a match against veteran Christopher Daniels. Amell's inclusion was well-received, though the actor admitted after the event that he blew up early in the match and had to be carried by Daniels. 

Whether he was joking or not, Batista offered a pointed response.

Amell has not tweeted further clarification. 

Batista vs. Triple H was made official for WrestleMania 35 last night on WWE Raw. The bout will be a No Holds Barred match.
