ORIGINAL: Stephen Amell revealed in a Facebook post that he hurt himself slightly while training for SummerSlam. Amell posted the following video, noting that he lifted a weight bar up and hit himself in the jaw. He said that he’s fine though.
“Facebook, hello,” Amell says. “Super fired up this morning… I was training, I was doing a snatch-pull-curl… I don’t know, with a bar. I snatched it so hard that it literally cracked me in the jaw. And both my molars, indented into my tongue. I’m okay. I’m just waiting for some ice at the moment. Ice it down, take the swelling of the tongue away. Hopefully get back to speaking in a more normal voice. I’m very excited to loop my lines on Arrow today, because I don’t think I necessarily sound like me. Nothing like ringing your bell first thing in the morning.”
