Jon Stewart’s heel turn at WWE SummerSlam had consequences. During WWE Monday Night Raw, the former Daily Show host was given the Attitude Adjustment by wrestler John Cena — payback for Stewart’s duplicitous actions during SummerSlam on Sunday night.
“I know you’re going to understand this,” Cena told Stewart before picking him up and tossing him down onto the mat.
On Sunday, Stewart acted as emcee for SummerSlam, and in a twist right out of, well, wrestling, helped his former nemesis Seth Rollins defeat Cena by hitting the Trainwreck costar with a chair.
Trevor Noah takes over as host of The Daily Show starting on Sept. 28. Sixteen years from now, perhaps he’ll be part of the WWE universe as well.
