Watch Seth Rollins Up Stakes in Feud With Daily Show Host Jon Stewart

Seth Rollins has invited Jon Stewart to ‘come check him out’ as the WWE star’s war of word with the US TV host rumbled on.
“You know where to find me,” Seth said on TMZ’s Hollywood Sports, in reponse to Stewart calling him out over comments made on Monday’s Raw.
Shrugging off Stewart’s athletic achievements at college and taking a crack at any writers used to script the departing Daily Show presenter’s promo at him, Rollins branded the 52-year-old comic “a fossil”.
“I don’t even know how old Jon Stewart is, he’s got to be ancient at this point, right?” said Seth, 28.
“There’s nobody on the WWE roster that can touch me, never mind Jon Stewart,” he continued.
“It’s a different world, what we do.”
Stewart had become the latest celebrity this week to challenge a WWE star, telling Seth Rollins in an online video: "You just stepped in a world of hurt, my friend."
The comic had hit back at Rollins' taunts on Monday’s Raw that he could replace the late-night presenter and make his news talk show "actually watchable".
Accusing the cocky 28-year-old of taking several wrong turns during his career, Stewart said: "Seth Rollins, you've made a lot of mistakes in your life.
“Being a turncoat for you brother in The Shield. Being a toady for the Authority. Not being able to choose which color your hair should be.”

His verbal smack down continued: “But this is the biggest mistake you ever made. By coming after The Daily Show you just stepped in a world of hurt, my friend.
“A world of hurt that even your buddies at J & J Security aren’t going to be able to save you from.
“I’m coming for you Rollins, and you're going to see it: 160 pounds of dynamite."
Hilariously, Stewart – who earlier this month announced he would be moving on after helming the Comedy Central show for 16 years – went on to undermine his own threat, saying his “bone density is not what it used to be”, instead likening himself to the same amount of ‘soft wood’.
“I can do whatever I want, whenever I want," Rollins had told the Raw crowd.
"Hell, if I wanted, I could become president.
“Or I could take over as host of The Daily Show for Jon Stewart and make that thing actually watchable."
Earlier this week, Intercontinental champ Bad News Barrett had some Twitter argy-bargy with Man United’s Wayne Rooney, as Preston North End fan Barrett revealed he would be keen on teaming with Lilywhites striker Kevin Davies to take on the England captain and Stone Cold Steve Austin.
