Jon Stewart's first act of retirement: Attacking pro wrestler John Cena with a steel chair

Have Stewart and Seth Rollins finally buried the hatchet?

If you imagined that Jon Stewart would use the stage Sunday night while hosting WWE's SummerSlam to retaliate against long-time nemesis, professional wrestler Seth Rollins, you would be quite wrong.

Plot twist: Stewart got physical during the Rollins vs. John Cena “winner takes all” title vs. title match at Barclays Center last night -- but it wasn't in Cena's defense. Stewart slammed -- no, demolished? Eviscerated? Skewered? -- him with a steel chair.


It seems Stewart has softened up a bit in retirement and decided to give the swaggering villain another chance. Is there hope for the rest of the "Daily Show" nemeses? Eh, it might be a while before Stewart rushes to Bill O'Reilly's defense with a steel chair.
