Jon Stewart may have found a new career path. The comedian took out John Cena with a chair during the WWE SummerSlam, helping Seth Rollins to win the match.

Comedian Jon Stewart’s first high-profile performance post-Daily Show was to disappointed fans not moderating a presidential debate but instead hosting the WWE’s SummerSlam on Sunday night.

 “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.
