  • Jonnie Stewart is a retired American professional wrestler. He is best known for competing in the American Wrestling Association on ESPN, World Wrestling Association (WWA) and AWA Superstars of Wrestling / Wrestling Superstars Live. Despite his almost 30 year wrestling career, Stewart is probably best known for being mistaken for the Comedy Central Jon Stewart in 2006 when he was accidentally hired to appear and host a gala charity event at a charter high school in Ogden, Utah. He played college football for University of Memphis and North Park University and he is believed to be the only person ever to play an NCAA football game and perform in a professional wrestling match, all in the same day. In 1990, it was rumored that, the NCAA was considering investigating Stewart, WCW, promoter Gary Juster and North Park University for violating Stewart's amateur status when Juster hired Stewart to wrestle Brad Armstrong for a WCW show at the UIC Pavilion during the regular football season. Fueling the controversy, Chicago promoter Alan Eppenstein claimed that the threshold investigation was dropped when the NCAA determined that: Stewart was never individually promoted on any media and that professional wrestling was not considered an actual sport and Stewart had more or less performed as an actor that night rather than a professional athlete. For the record, this rumor has never been confirmed or denied by any of the parties involved. (en)
