STAMFORD, CT (KFVS) -

His days of hosting "The Daily Show" have come to an end, but Jon Stewart still has at least one more show to host. 

On Monday, World Wrestling Entertainment announced Stewart will host this year's SummerSlam, a four-hour broadcast airing Sunday, August 23 live on the WWE Network.

SummerSlam will mark a return to the ring for the comedian.

Earlier this year, Stewart appeared on an episode of "Monday Night Raw" as part of an on-going "feud" with WWE heavyweight champion Seth Rollins. Rollins also appeared on "The Daily Show" during a look-back segment during Stewart's final few shows. 

Stewart ended his 16-year run as host of "The Daily Show" on August 6, 2015. Comedian Trevor Noah will take over the show's hosting duties on September, 28.
