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. Check out a clip below of Stewart and Rollins facing-off on March 2, 2015 at Monday Night Raw. Most recently, Rollins appeared in a look-back segment during Stewart’s final few days on “The Daily Show.”

Stewart stepped down from his post as host of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Thursday, August 6. During his tenure, Stewart welcomed a wide array of high profile guests including, President Barack Obama, former President Jimmy Carter, Clint Eastwood, Halle Berry, Ben Affleck, Jon Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Derek Jeter, Shaquille O’Neal, Bill Gates and many more.

This year SummerSlam has been extended to a four-hour broadcast plus a one-hour pre-show beginning at 6pm ET on WWE Network. Emanating live from a sold-out Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, SummerSlam will feature WWE Superstars Undertaker and Brock Lesnar in a rematch of their historic WrestleMania 30 bout where Lesnar ended Undertaker’s undefeated streak.
