As the presidential races heats up, Jon Stewart has other things on his mind.

Among them: wrestling.

On Aug. 23, he’ll host “SummerSlam” on the WWE Network.

The Daily Show veteran is a purported WWE fan.

Or so says the WWE:

“Stewart, a longtime WWE fan, appeared earlier this year in WWE storylines in an on-going feud with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins®. After Stewart taunted Rollins in an online video, Rollins appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart where he challenged Stewart to appear on Monday Night Raw to settle their score… Most recently, Rollins appeared in a look-back segment during Stewart’s final few days on The Daily Show.”

The show Stewart will host will be a four-hour broadcast that includes a one-hour pre-show beginning at 6pm ET on WWE Network. It’ll be live from a sold-out Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. SummerSlam. In the ring will be WWE Superstars Undertaker and Brock Lesnar in a rematch.
