Arrow fans have been telling Stephen Amell that he should compete on American Ninja Warrior for years. Back in 2014, the show even reached out to his manager in hopes of making it happen. Amell turned that opportunity down citing a lack of time in his schedule, but it seems that Salt Lake City Comic-Con finally “pushed him over the edge”.
Over the weekend Amell wrote the following on Facebook:
Ok… It happened. The people of Salt Lake City and the great State of Utah pushed me over the edge. NBC American Ninja Warrior – in 2017, I would like to compete on your show.
I’m sure that Supergirl stuntwoman Jessie Graff’s dominance on the show has also proven to be an inspiration. A little superhero competition is hard to resist.
