The Miz vs Dolph Ziggler match is officially announced by WWE for the SummerSlam 2019 show prior to yesterday’s SmackDown episode.
There have been a lot of uncertainty and conflicting reports about Dolph Ziggler’s potential SummerSlam opponent in the last few weeks. Although the feud between him and the Miz started after Extreme Rules, Ziggler was rumored to be facing Shawn Michaels at the show.
Those rumors started after Ziggler crashed a segment of Miz TV last Tuesday night on Smackdown Live. He went on to trash Shawn Michaels for coming out of retirement for a terrible match in Saudi Arabia last year, and constantly parading out for nostalgia shows. The segment ended with a physical altercation, and Ziggler hitting Michaels with his own Sweet Chin Music.
Then, there was a case of Ziggler facing Goldberg at SummerSlam since he has been name-dropping him so much lately as the example of legends overstaying their welcome. So much so that the possibility to Goldberg squashing him at SummerSlam was also mentioned.
However, WWE has now officially confirmed that Dolph Ziggler will only be facing The Miz at SummerSlam 2019. The show will take place on 11 August 2019 at Scotiabank Arena, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
