Less than two weeks after retiring from his long run as host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Jon Stewart has his next gig lined up. USA Today reports that Stewart will host WWE’s “SummerSlam.”

The four-hour event, being held in Brooklyn, is set to air Sunday at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. 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,” the story reports.

Rollins is set to square off against John Cena at Sunday’s event, which also features Brock Lesnar vs. the Undertaker, along with a tag-team match in which “Arrow” star Stephen Amell is paired with Adrian Neville to take on Stardust and Wade Barrett.
