Jon Stewart is nearing his end at the The Daily Show, so if he has any dreams left to to fulfill while he's there, now is the time to do them. And so he is, as last night, Stewart showed up on WWE's Monday Night Raw to kick a guy in the dick. It was the weirdest, most oddly-received WWE crossover event since the new Three Stooges arrived at WWE in a crate.
Rollins apparently kicked off this surreal-by-even-pro-wrestling-standards conflict a few weeks ago by announcing in the ring, "I could take over as host of The Daily Show for Jon Stewart and make that thing actually watchable."
