Jon Stewart Joins WWE Tag Team Powered By Unicorn Magic

See the former Daily Show host's new gig

Jon Stewart: actor, television host, WWE Superstar.

During Sunday's SummerSlam, Stewart, a WWE superfan, returned to the ring. But this time he wasn't hosting the event or feuding with Seth Rollins. No, this time the former Daily Show host was ready to get in on the action.

With New Day member Big E side-lined, Stewart volunteered to join the tag team champions in their title match that night. Wearing the New Day's traditional Booty-O's shirt and unicorn horn (the group is powered by unicorn magic, natch), Stewart even made his best attempt to take on Big E's classic entrance speech.

But, while Stewart appeared prepared to put his money (and physical well-being) where his mouth is, a cured Big E rushed to Stewart's rescue just in time. And while we can't say for sure, we like to believe it was the unicorn magic that cured Big E and saved Stewart from suffering too much bodily harm.

But that doesn't mean Stewart is out of danger quite yet. In another segment of Sunday's event, WWE boss Stephanie McMahon overheard Stewart talking trash about her to Shane McMahon, Mick Foley and Daniel Bryan, and we doubt Stephanie has plans to forgive or forget the former host.

Here's hoping we get to see this feud play out a bit longer!
