JON STEWART AND SETH ROLLINS™ TO SETTLE THE SCORE TONIGHT ON MONDAY NIGHT RAW®
STAMFORD, Conn., March 2, 2015 – WWE® Superstar Seth Rollins and Jon Stewart, host of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, will finally settle the score in their on-going feud, live tonight on Monday Night Raw at 8/7C on USA Network.
Rollins and Stewart’s feud began when Mr. Money in the Bank claimed he could make The Daily Show With Jon Stewart “watchable” by hosting the program when Stewart leaves. Stewart and Rollins have since traded verbal jabs and came face-to-face last Thursday when Rollins invaded The Daily Show With Jon Stewart during Stewart’s “Moment of Zen” and challenged him to face him once and for all at Monday Night Raw.
Stewart, a longtime fan of WWE, is the host of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, a satirical news program that airs on Comedy Central. Stewart announced on February 10, 2015, during a taping of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart that he will leave the show before the end of 2015. This Sunday, March 8, Stewart will host Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs on Comedy Central at 8pm ET/PT.
Monday Night Raw is the longest-running, weekly episodic program in U.S. primetime TV history and is the most-watched, regularly scheduled programs on cable, airing live every Monday night on USA Network. Each week, it is rated one of the most socially active shows on cable television and continues to be a “must-stop” for celebrities to reach WWE’s TV audience and its more than 460 million social media followers.
