In a bit of cross-branding, Jon Stewart just stopped by World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc.'s (NYSE: WWE) flagship show, "Monday Night Raw."
"The Daily Show" host and WWE superstar Seth Rollins have been in somewhat of a verbal sparring match in recent weeks, with Rollins actually stopping by the Comedy Central show last week.
Rollins and Stewart appeared in a Daily Show-style segment on the Raw. By the end of his 10-minute cameo, Stewart even gave kicked Rollins in the groin, much to the delight of his hometown New Jersey crowd.

WWE loves to get celebrities involved around Wrestlemania season. In the past, Oscar-nominee Mickey Rourke, Adam Sandler, Maria Menounos and even Floyd Mayweather have appeared on WWE television around this time of year.
Remember how much Regis Philbin put over WWE back in the 80s and 90s? Jon Stewart could be that guy in the modern landscape. Use him more!
