John Cena came to the ring Sunday night wearing his new "Can't See Me 15x" T-shirt.

He won't be needing some new ones -- thanks to SummerSlam host Jon Stewart.

The ex-"Daily Show" host, who feuded with Rollins in his last year hosting the show, turned on Cena on Sunday night at SummerSlam in Brooklyn, allowing Rollins to walk away the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and the United States Champion in the title-for-title match.

Stewart entered the ring holding a folding chair near the end of a memorable bout between Rollins and Cena that saw Cena nearly win his 16th world title and tie Ric Flair's record using the Nature Boy's figure-four leg lock.

Stewart hinted at hitting both wrestlers before nailing Cena in the midsection, allowing Rollins to leave with two title belts.

Stewart's appearance threw a wrench in a match that didn't need a gimmick finish to send the crowd home happy. Rollins discarded his usual black garb, coming to the ring in a brand-new white outfit that looked like he was trying out for some "Mortal Kombat" remake. But the unique look didn't keep the Barclays Center crowd from offering up a "Let's Go Rollins" chant before the bell even rang, and Rollins didn't disappoint.

Even by classic anti-Cena chant standards, the Brooklyn crowd had a particularly vitriolic reaction to the squeaky-clean Cena, so they were extra-appreciative when Rollins got off to a quick start. He hit Cena three straight times with launches from inside the ring to out. Twice he jumped through the second and third rope to spear Cena, then added a somersault over the top rope to send him down.

But Rollins' signature moment of the match came when he hit a frog splash off the top rope to bring back memories of the late Eddie Guerrero.
