Jon Stewart Tags In to Host SummerSlam

Arrow star Stephen Amell will have some high-profile company in the ring come time for SummerSlam, USA Today reports.

Former The Daily Show host Jon Stewart has agreed to emcee the four-hour event broadcasting live from Brooklyn on Sunday night.

Earlier this year, Stewart had a brief "feud" with heavyweight champion Seth Rollins which culminated in a guest appearance on WWE Monday Night Raw.

If that sounds familiar, it's because that's more or less exactly the script Amell and Stardust followed, building a rivalry on social media up until they confronted one another at Raw and then set up a tag-team bout at SummerSlam.


This weekend's event will feature a title bout between Rollins and U.S. champ JohnCena, a match between Brock Lesnar and the Undertaker, plus Amell's tag-team match with Adrian Neville vs. Stardust and Wade Barrett.

WWE SummerSlam will air at 7 p.m. ET/4 PT on WWE Network.
