Because of course he did—it's SummerSlam, people

(Newser) – Since the Daily Show finale earlier this month, Jon Stewart has been keeping busy. Last night the comedian hosted a different kind of show to help WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins defend his title against the face everyone loves to hate: John Cena, SBNation.com reports. The match at Brooklyn's Barclays Center between the long-feuding Rollins and United States Champion Cena was a typical mishmash of wrestling staples, including stomach stomping, Figure-Four Leglocks, and a superplex or two. But as Cena was checking on the referee, who had (naturally) been knocked out during the match, the unspeakable happened, per SBNation, "OUT OF NOWHERE, JON STEWART HAS A DANG CHAIR!"

The erstwhile late-night host rushed into the ring and was expected to help Cena perform a beatdown on Rollins—whom Stewart had recently taken to task on the Daily Show—but it was Cena who took the brunt of Stewart's chair, helping Rollins seal the deal and both championship belts. (Stewart and his wife, Tracey McShane, recently snatched up a New Jersey farm they hope to transform into an animal sanctuary, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. But could moderating the presidential debates be Stewart's next gig?)
