A few weeks ago on Monday Night Raw we saw the appearance of A-List celebrity talk show host and long time wrestling fan Jon Stewart. I can honestly say that I probably wasn't alone in thinking that Jon Stewart's appearance was one of the best celebrity appearances in recent memory, because it didn't seem meaningless & he knew what he was talking about. Also I believe that Jon Stewart proved that all celebrity appearances don't have to be meaningless especially if the celebrity is a fan of the company and actually knows the product outside of John Cena.
Though Jon Stewart's segment with Seth Rollins wasn't incredible, it did have more meaning to the show then just having the celebrity to promote something the fans couldn't care about. By the end of the segment the Orton vs Rollins feud took center stage over the celebrity appearance, which is how it should be. Jon Stewart showed that a celebrity appearance from a celebrity who actually knows the history of the company and what is going on in the product and the history of the company instead of just looking like a useless waste of TV time like most celebrity guests are. To further push my point take a look at this excerpt from an article on the Bleacher Report:
"Stewart's explanation of Rollins' questionable Money in the Bank win, among other heel tactics, was simple and effective. The Daily Show host expertly pointed out everything that makes Rollins an effective heel. By the end of the segment, Randy Orton's involvement escalated the feud between Rollins and Orton.
's booking of Stewart is a coup in and of itself. He's an A-list talk show host who is more relevant than ever in his final year anchoringThe Daily Show. Anything else he contributes is an added bonus.
Stewart's segment on Raw Monday night can safely be considered a double-bonus."
