Jon Stewart wasn’t going to stay out of the spotlight for that long. After leaving the Daily Show with Bruce Springsteen’s help, Stewart will become a host once more at SummerSlam of all places, according to USA Today. This is quite the stage, because SummerSlam is the WWE’s biggest event behind WrestleMania.
This isn’t a completely bizarre surprise. Stewart has been openly pro-wrestling and even got into a playful feud with Seth Rollins, the current WWE Heavyweight Champion. After a back-and-forth that included Rollins crashing the Daily Show, the two settled their differences over a confrontation in the ring.
