As fans of The Daily Show await the arrival of it's new host, Trevor Noah (who takes over the desk on September 28th), many were left wondering what previous long-time host Jon Stewart had planned for the future. The comedian has stayed pretty quiet on his plans for the future, but now, it seems, he at least has a summer gig.

According to USA Today, Stewart will take over hosting duties for the WWE's SummerSlam, which has already confirmed [Arrow](tag:720988)'s Stephen Amell and his involvement in a tag-team match against long-time foe Stardust.

In his first major gig since leaving The Daily Show Aug. 6 after a 16-year run, Stewart has signed on to be the host of WWE's SummerSlam on Sunday. The four-hour event airs live from Brooklyn's sold-out Barclays Center at 7 p.m. ET/4 PT on WWE Network.

A longtime pro-wrestling fan, Stewart engaged in a "feud" earlier this year with WWE heavyweight champion Seth Rollins — the TV host taunted Rollins online, the wrestler then crashed Stewart's show, and the twosome settled matters in the squared circle during an episode of USA's Monday Night Raw in March.

Stewart takes the mic this coming Sunday, August 23rd, to a sold-out affair with surprises abounds.
