Seth Rollins has finally met Jon Stewart after he dissed the comedian and his show earlier this month. On Thursday night, February 26, the pro wrestler crashed “The Daily Show” and confronted Stewart.
The soon-to-be-departing host introduced the “Moment of Zen” to wrap up the episode, but the segment was interrupted by the WWE star who appeared on the screen. “I hope you are prepared for a world of hurt,” he said to Stewart.
When asked how he could interrupt Stewart’s “Moment of Zen”, Rollins replied, “I can do anything I want. I am all powerful.” Stewart responded, “Mind your manners; I’ve got a little wrestling in my background as well,” and boasted about his wrestling skills before Rollins appeared behind him.
“He’s right behind me, isn’t he,” the surprised Stewart said. Rollins then invited the host to appear on WWE’s “Raw” this Monday, March 2. Looking slightly terrified, Stewart tried to make an excuse by claiming that he might have pulled his back muscles when he turned to see Rollins, but eventually accepted the challenge.
Stewart suddenly leaped and attacked the wrestles, but Rollins quickly turned the situation around and put Stewart in a headlock.
Seth Rollin and Jon Stewart engaged in a playful war of words after the former declared that he could replace Stewart on “The Daily Show” and made “that thing actually watchable.” Stewart responded to the diss by saying in a video, “This is the biggest mistake you’ve ever made…by coming after the Daily Show, you just stepped in a world of hurt, my friend. I’m coming for you Rollins.”
Rollins hit back at the “Rosewater” director, writing on Twitter, “You know where to find me Mr. Stewart. @WWEJJSecurity will even hold up the middle rope for you.”
