Just to catch you up: Seth Rollins cut a promo on Raw saying he was capable of anything, both inside and outside the WWE ring. One of the things he mentioned that he was capable of doing was taking over for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. Stewart responded in the first video above, to which Rollins responded via TMZ in the second video. Is Jon Stewart Seth Rollins’s ideal opponent at WrestleMania? No, no he is not. But if the WWE can’t figure out a way to get Randy Orton back on TV, bring in the promo master himself Jon Stewart and let’s see the second worst WrestleMania match ever! (Bret Hart/Vince will never be unseated as the worst match in mania history) If you don’t want to hear Jon Stewart cut a lengthy promo on Raw about which kind of wood he see’s himself as then I’m not sure I like you as a person.
Jon Stewart leaving ‘The Daily Show’ was going to be tough whenever it happened, but losing him around the same time as Colbert and Letterman really shakes up the late night TV hierarchy. Colbert will be taking over for Letterman, but it won’t be the Colbert we all love and remember. Naturally when something like this happens, we turn to Twitter for the most thought out and rational responses. Take it away, tweeters.
I worry for the USA without Jon Stewart like I would would worry for a cartoon character that lost the angel on its shoulder.

This is actually beautiful. Well said, Solitary Refinement (if that’s your real name).
With the retiring of Jon Stewart and the rise of BuzzFeed, I’m worried about the future of our country.

Shhh Eric, BuzzFeed can hear you. It hears everything at all times.
getting texts from friends sending their condolences to me about the retirement of Jon Stewart lol. That’s how much this man has meant to me

We feel your pain, Karl. But have no fear, he’ll be back someday.
Really hoping Jon Stewart takes over NBC Nightly News and Brian Williams takes over The Daily Show. It’d be just like Freaky Friday!

Whoever had 50-1 odds on the Jamie Lee Curtis movie reference/Jon Stewart leaving The Daily Show just won a shitload of money.
But actually though, can we start fundraising for Jon Stewart for President? Cause that’s something I could support

I mean, why not?

Oh god. Please no. Don’t leave us Jon!
Once again, Jon Stewart nails it. These things are common sense people! Open your eyes and just do a little research before election time. Politicians who line their pockets need to go. We need effectiveness! Science is fact. The numbers are there, and while nobody can see the future, these numbers are the best bet moving forward. We need to take steps instead of planting our feet and pointing fingers.
