In his first major gig since leaving The Daily ShowAug. 6 after a 16-year run, Stewart has signed on to be the host of WWE's SummerSlam on Sunday. The four-hour event airs live from Brooklyn's sold-outBarclays Center at 7 p.m. ET/4 PT on WWE Network.

A longtime pro-wrestling fan, Stewart engaged in a "feud" earlier this year with WWE heavyweight champion Seth Rollins — the TV host taunted Rollins online, the wrestler then crashed Stewart's show, and the twosome settled matters in the squared circle during an episode of USA's Monday Night Raw in March.
