• Update Regarding Goldberg’s SummerSlam 2019 Match Announcement
As we have noted before, The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler is scheduled to be changed to Goldberg vs. Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam 2019 (tap here to know more).
At first, it was believed that it was going to be an impromptu match with WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg showing up out of nowhere at SummerSlam 2019, but it looks like that’s not going to be the case.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, WWE is expected to confirm Goldberg’s SummerSlam 2019 tomorrow:
“Nobody’s gonna believe Dolph Ziggler’s gonna win that match and plus it’s not even gonna be announced until the Monday before.”
