WWE star Cody Rhodes aka Stardust guest-stars on Arrow tonight as drug-dealer Garret Runnels, who clashes with both Wild Dog and Green Arrow.

The wrestler’s character is named after Cody’s actual middle and last names (he was born Cody Garrett Runnels).

In Season 5 Episode 3 on The CW his character does battle with Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) after causing havoc in Star City.

But that’s only after Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez) tries to take him out on his own — only to find out that he isn’t up to it, as Runnels overpowers him.

Oliver Queen is then left to clean up the mess, but Runnels isn’t going to be easy to take down — he’s got enhanced strength and doesn’t feel pain.

It’s also rumored that Deadshot will return in the episode, but as of the time of writing there’s been nothing to actually confirm that.

In 2010 Cody appeared as Kurt Smoller in an episode of Warehouse 13 on Syfy.

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8pm EST on The CW.
