Less than two weeks after Jon Stewart signed off from The Daily Show, we already know his next project: hosting WWE’s SummerSlam.

The wrestling event will not be Stewart’s first encounter with WWE; the comedian got into a faux-spat with heavyweight champion Seth Rollins on his show earlier this year, which culminated in an invitation to Monday Night Raw; Stewart ended up kicking Rollins in the groin.

According to the WWE, the wrestling extravaganza will feature the Undertaker facing Brock Lesnar in a grudge-fueled rematch.


SummerSlam will be a four-hour pay-per-view broadcast from Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center on Sunday.
