“I spent the last 16 years talking about politics. It’s nice to be back in reality," Stewart told the boisterous WWE crowd.
An avid wrestling fan, Stewart interrupted a title-for-title match between professional wrestlers Seth Rollins and John Cena, entering the ring with metal chair in hand. At first, he intimidated Rollins with the chair, but sucker punched Cena right in the stomach with the hard piece of metal instead.

The political-satirist-turned-wrestling-rookie was dubbed a “SummerSlam Criminal” for disrupting the match.
