Jon Stewart To Host WWE's SummerSlam

It's his first gig since saying goodbye to "The Daily Show."

Jon Stewart has said goodbye to "The Daily Show," but the 52-year-old isn't about to slow down. 

On Monday, WWE Network announced that Stewart will host SummerSlam on Aug. 23. 

You might be asking what SummerSlam is, especially if you are more familiar with "The Daily Show" and less familiar with the WWE. In short: wrestling.

SummerSlam will take place live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, where The Undertaker will take on Brock Lesnar in what the press release called a "a rematch of their historic WrestleMania clash where The Beast Incarnate ended The Phenom’s undefeated streak."

 SummerSlam airs Aug. 23, at 7 p.m. ET live on WWE Network.
