Jon Stewart And The WWE’s Seth Rollins Have Been Trading Barbs And It’s Glorious

One of the things you might not know about Jon Stewart is that he is, quite unashamedly, a devout fan of the WWE and pro-wrestling in general. He’s been spotted ringside at a number of WWE events, and was just as furious as everyone else about the end of the Undertaker‘s legendary undefeated WrestleMania streak.

‘Course he’s also a centre-left socialist on the political side of things, which doesn’t really agree with staunch Republican and wrestling tyrant Vince McMahon, whose own wife has had two (failed) tilts at the US Senate for the Red Elephants – despite running the most expensive campaigns in US political history. But that, in and of itself, is neither here nor there.
Last week news broke that Stewart would be leaving The Daily Show at some point towards the end of the year. And the WWE simply cannot resist taking little digs at just about every single development in the entertainment game, because in the world of wrestling there’s no such thing as heat that’s too cheap.
Enter, Seth Rollins – the WWE’s current top pure bad guy, and a man who always seems to be wet. On this past week’s instalment of Monday Night Raw, Rollins, being the giant jerk that he is, took a giant jerkish dig at Stewart, claiming he could host the show and make it actually entertaining – comments that were met with a hail of boos from the couple dozen fans in the arena that also watch The Daily Show.

Never being one to back down from a verbal challenge, Stewart fired back – in the only way he knows how.

Not content to just leave that little doozy be, what with all the talk of balsa wood and splinters and whatnot (that shit’s serious, son) Rollins told him exactly where he’ll be.

I have no idea where will lead to – if anywhere. All I know is if Rollins is having a match at some point in the near future and Stewart appears out of nowhere to drop him with a Stone Cold Stunner, I’ll lose my goddamned mind.
You know what? Screw it. I wanna see them go at it. At WrestleMania. In front of 80,000 people. In a goddamned cage. I want blood, damn it! BLOOD!
