Jon Stewart's hanging up his satirical hat as host of the Daily Show in the next couple of months and it seems he's expanding his remit in anticipation of that. The comedian and presenter showed up on Monday night Raw this week and proceeded to begin a feud with Seth Rollins.
This storyline has been building over the past couple of weeks with suggestions that Stewart would make a WWE appearance sooner rather than later.
Rollins began making noises about The Daily Show a couple of weeks ago. That turned into a brief appearance in which he claimed he could do a much better job of running the show once Stewart retires.
Then came Monday night Raw where Rollins attempted to do just that, which prompted Stewart's WWE debut. Things were going along nicely, Randy Orton made an appearance and Stewart gave Rollins a rather impressive kick to the undercarriage.
Here's the kick in isolation.

Even former WWE superstar Lance Storm was impressed with Stewart's appearance.
Is it just me or is the comedian doing the best Wrestling Promo on the show tonight?
