Alas, Jon, that was an inevitability.
“I’m just gonna do what I gotta do,” Cena said before hoisting the recently-retired “Daily Show” host onto his shoulders and body-slamming him to the ground.
While hosting WWE’S “SummerSlam” on Sunday, Stewart surprised fans by smacking Cena with a steel chair during the wrestler’s bout against Seth Rollins.
As CBS Sports notes, the move helped Rollins retain his World Heavyweight Championship and snag Cena's United States Championship belt as well.
On Monday, Stewart attempted to explain his chair-wielding aggression. As a wrestling fan, he simply could not bear to see Cena “tie the great Ric Flair … because, in my mind, ‘The Champ is Flair,’” Stewart said. “Not on my watch. Wasn't going to let it happen.”
Flair is a retired pro wrestler who clinched a record 16 world titles during his career. Cena is currently looking to tie that record.
