Jon Stewart Has Found His Calling Post-‘Daily Show,’ And It’s Professional Wrestling
He’s gonna be a WWE champion one day.
Jon Stewart began his first gig since leaving the “The Daily Show” by giving himself a moment to soberly reflect on his past.
“I spent the last 16 years talking about politics. It’s nice to be back in reality,” he told a roaring WWE crowd in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday night while attending SummerSlam 2015.
His new reality — that of professional wrestling — is scripted and performance-based, but Stewart is more than happy to oblige.
Especially when there’s a piece of the action to be had:
Aside from his well-groomed streaky silver locks of hair, Stewart is now also rocking a retirement beard and handling the ring pretty well.
He charged up to Rollins, intimating him with sudden movements, a hunchback, and of course, that folding chair. Rollins and Stewart have a feud dating back to last spring, so seeing Stewart attack his arch-nemesis wasn’t a surprise here.
Hey Stewart, you gonna use that thing or what? Go get Rollins!
Oh snap, he just KO’d John Cena!
Stewart was dubbed a “SummerSlam criminal” by the announcers for interfering with the match. Not a bad start to post-“Daily Show” life.
Stewart should watch his back though — Cena is known to get his revenge every now and then.
